One of the major attractions in Auli is to enjoy a cable car ride. Locally known as a Gondola, the cable car ride in Auli is the second highest and the longest cable car ride in Asia after Gulmarg. Covering a total distance of 4 km, the journey starts at Joshimath and ends at Auli, and takes a total time of around 24 min. Perched at a staggering height of 3010 m above sea level, the entire trip is a visual and sensual delight.
You can enjoy the majestic Himalayan peaks in the surroundings and the lush green valley below. Moving at a speed of 3 m per sec, you can enjoy views of the oak forests below in addition to snow-capped peaks and verdant meadows. The scintillating views and the gorgeous panoramic vistas are a sight to behold.
The ropeway works with two cable cars through 10 towers and can accommodate upto 25 passengers. Although, the passengers have to keep standing as there are no seats. In case you are lucky and are travelling at the right time, you can also be a witness to a skiing competition going on below.
