Auli Artificial Lake
The Auli artificial lake is one of the highest artificial lakes in the world due to its elevation. The government built this lake to create snow for the brand-new ski slopes. Many visitors skipped Auli as their skiing destination because there wasn't as much snowfall during the summer months. The government implemented an ingenious idea of installing snow cannons to make snow from the lake. These cannons mounted adjacent to the ski slopes help the skiing surface become smoother, prolonging the well-liked Auli skiing season in the summer. Also, the lake is a sight to behold! Take in the scenery, including the sunset over the Himalayan mountains around the lake when you are here.
The enjoyable cable car journey is Auli's biggest attraction, also known as Gondola. The ride covers a length of 4 km and is Asia's second-highest and longest cable ride. This gondola starts at Joshimath and stops at Auli, and the ride takes about 24 minutes to cover. A maximum of 25 people can take this cable car journey. Visitors find this ride extremely enthralling as the incredibly massive peaks, oak trees, and meadows are visible from the best vantage point. The ticket price for the cable ride is INR 1000.
