Overnight In: Auli (2600m )
Accommodation: Hotel

Activity: Drive Day

Journey from Haridwar to Auli is a long one, but definitely not a boring one. As you swirl up, you come across the Prayags ( confluence of rivers) of Uttrakhand, coming down from the Himalayan Glaciers on the higher reaches of the Himalayan state. These rivers unite to form the mighty Ganga which flows down Haridwar to rest for India. Ganga is known as the lifeline of India, and Uttrakhand - The Dev Bhoomi ( God's Land)

The streets are colorful too !!

Travelling in mountain roads for over 280 KMS can be really tiring. So take a good sleep in your hotel tonight.

It's a long walk right on Day 1 of the trek, but a very beautiful one too!

Once on top, we spend some good amount of time there viewing the peaks of Garhwal and Kumaon.

We hike down lazily to reach back Khullara and ease out for the day.
