It is all about my Trip To Auli in search of live snowfall. Auli is around 260 km drive from Rishikesh, it is located at the Chamoli district of Uttrakhand. It is not as famous as Gulmarg in Kashmir but it is also beautifully covered with apple orchards and pine trees. Auli is the prime location to see the snow-capped peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul peak, Hathi peak, Mana Parvat, and Kamat Kamet. This is a famous destination for winter sports as it is completely covered with snow in winter. It is less crowded when compared to touristic hubs like Mussoorie and Nainital. So you can have some peaceful days in Auli. An instagrammable destination- It is somewhat difficult fo...

When I first came to Rishikesh, I was just 8 years. Since the last two years, I have been coming here more often like once in 2-3 months and let me tell you, this place always gives me peace and tranquillity, and it is so beautiful that every time I come over here, I fall in love with this place all over again. Clear and pure air, green mountains on all the sides, the flowing Ganga River, meditation and yoga classes in every Ashram, you can see different Indian cultures on the bank of The Ganga River. Today there is heavy commercialization in My Home Rishikesh but for me, it is the same beautiful place as it was 24 years ago.I had been thinking about the setup for a long time and I thoug...
