Top Skiing Hot-Spots In India

Auli, well-known as 'The Switzerland of the East', is a renowned winter sport destination in Uttrakhand. Located some 250 kms away from Rishikesh, the place is almost like heaven on earth, not just because of its beautiful glittering slopes but as well as for the nice clean environment. It is a very popular destination for skiing. With the world-class facilities all around - right from snow beaters and snow-packing machines to snow dredgers and snow guns for creating artificial snow, it is considered as the world’s best for cross-country, slalom and downhill skiing. But getting to this ski village faces a slight difficulty as it requires an overnight camp to reach from Delhi (500 km). The nearest airport is Dehradun which is about 298 kms away from Auli. Being a popular skiing destination, Auli is well connected through roads. Various transport facilities like buses, hired jeeps and taxis connect Auli to different cities like Haridwar, Rishikesh, Dehradun and Delhi. December-end to March is the best time to visit this Switzerland of the East.
