Trip to Chopta & Auli

Ritesh Narayan asked 3 weeks ago

Hi Dheeraj,
I am planning a trip with my family to Chopta & Auli from 20th May 2018 to 25th May 2018 in 2 wheel drive Honda Mobilio MPV. Do let me know the itinerary for the same. Can we break it into 3 days at Chopta & 2 days at Auli or do you suggest additional day in Auli. Can I drive 2 wheel drive Mobilio till Chopta & Auli. Also, request you to suggest good hotels/resorts in the range of 3000-4000 per day in Chopta & Auli where we can have a comfortable stay with good food. Also, can I reach from Delhi to Chopta in the same day if I drive from Delhi at 5 in the morning. Do we need to add any other beautiful place during this trip. Please suggest
Many Thanks,
Regards,
Ritesh

Hey Ritesh,

Car wise Mobilio will do fine up there. There isn’t any bad stretch except few patches here and there. I will suggest following to you:

Day 0 | Delhi – Rishikesh / Haridwar (leave a even before and reach the base at Rishikesh or Haridwar)
Day 1 | Rishikesh / Haridwar to Chopta
Day 2, 3, 4 | Relax at Chopta and hike to Tunganath Temple, Chandrashilla if you guys can do hiking and also hike to Deoriatal. You can stay put up at Deoriatal in camps if you like camping but expect not many facilities and raw open toilets.

Day 5, 6 | Chopta – Chamoli – Joshimath, make it the base and then visit Auli next Day 6 either by car or cable car, spend time at Auli)
Day 7 | Auli – Rishikesh/Khirsu/Delhi Depending upon how much you are comfortable to drive in one day after seeing the roads and all while going on towards Auli.
Day 8 | Rishikesh/Khirsu – Delhi

Hi Dheeraj, Many thanks for preparing the itinerary. Would like to know – how is the traffic during May as Kedarnath & Badrinath temples would open by this time. Is it advisable to go to Chopta Auli during May or should this be avoided. Plz advise Thanks & Rgds, Ritesh

Traffic will be congested at places especially due to Badrinath and Kedarnath Yatra had already begun. Temples would open by first, the second week of May.
