Auli Gorson Bugyal Trek

Auli Gorson Bugyal Trek

Trekking in winter comes with bundles of fun, more when it has two befuddling meadows (known as ‘bugyal’ in Garhwali language) and their whispering beauty covered in white snow, which in seasons other than winter is laid down in flurry of colors. This is Auli Gorson Bugyal Winter trekking which inspires even the most tentative steps in this kind of cool adventure. 

 

Route to Auli - Gorson is one such fortuity a trekker can enjoy shuffling through some pages of geography. On this trek of Garhwal Himalayas, the intimidation doesn’t seem to cross mind due to its easy level. Staring from the Rishikesh to Joshimath to begin the trekking tour is the first step; every trekker has to take this in order to accomplish Auli Gorson Bugyal trekking. 

 

The icing on the cake for this trip is views of Nanda Devi Peak. From Auli, it seems as if the peak could be touched by bare hands. The line of Alpine trees of Deodar or Oak at Gorson Bugyal is a sight to behold forever.

 

The whole trip starting from and returning to Delhi takes almost 8 days while the actual trek from Auli bugyal to Gorson bugyal takes 3 hrs or so, covering almost 5-6 kms on foot. The real test is walking on snow-laden path; however entire hard work is worth when all the beauties of the world are tumbled in the white serenity of this place. 

Come and be a part of it this time!
