How to reach Auli from Delhi?

Auli is located at a distance of 500 kilometers from Delhi. [adrotate group=”1″]There are no direct transport routes available between Auli and Delhi or between any other major city . You will have to first reach a lower destination and then hire a private vehicle to reach here.

  • By Air

The nearest Airport is Dehradun’s Jolly Grant Airport ,it is 175 kilometers from Auli. So I don’t suggest to reach here via air as the time you will gain by reaching Dehradun will be lost when you travel in the hilly terrains of Uttrakhand.

  • By Bus

There is no direct transport available between Auli and Delhi , however both government and deluxe buses are available to Joshimath which is 15 kilometers away. From Joshimath you can hire a private vehicle who charge around 300-400 rupees .

  • By Cab/Private Vehicle

If you are travelling during winter I don’t suggest you use your own vehicle as the terrain is very rough and it can be very difficult to drive on snow covered roads.Generally can charges vary from 6000-10000 rupees depending on the vehicle .

  • By Train

Auli Doesn’t have a railway station nearest ones are Kotdwara and Kathodgam railway stations. which are themselves almost 300 kilometers away from Auli. So I don’t suggest visiting this place via train either.
