Photographer's Note

Inspite of its spectacular location and easy accessibility, Auli is still a less traveled hill station. On a clear day a number of famous peaks are visible Nanda devi, Trishul, Dhunagiri, Kamet, Hathi Parbat, Ghori Parbat etc.
One can stay at the GMVN guest house or the Cliff top resort.
A note for trekkers. If you are ending your trek at Auli and your trek is organized by an agency, then there is no problem. But if you have organized it on your own, like we did, then be prepared to face a racket. The government collects a small amout for the upkeep of the trails. But these people collect the money from you but will not issue a receipt. They will say that the receipt will be issued by their office further down. They use a walkie talkie and there is person who speaks to them. You will find it impressive.
We had heard about this problem but I guess all of us were so tired, none of us were thinking straight. So we handed over the amount. When we reached their office, we were told that the staff had left for lunch. But we could hear a walkie talkie inside. We waited for two hours but no one turned up. When we went back to the post they refused to acknowledge that they had taken the money from us.
So never pay any amount to anyone without proper receipt.
