There are a few peaks in the Garhwal and Kumaoni Himalayas that are as pretty and majestic as the Trishul Peak. The peak is so called because is presents not one but three distinct faces and facets of the mountain that can be clearly seen with the naked eye. It is the main meeting place where skiing enthusiasts gather for annual skiing events and competitions.

The Trishul Peak is situated in the Kumaaon region. The peak rises to a level of 23,940ft and is the prettiest sight in the Himalayan Ranges where skiing is practiced professionally. The peak is also encircled by a national park and also has the Roopkund Lake at its base. Trishul peak is the perfect place to visit in Auli.

Newly Added Bageshwar Experience
We fell in love with this place at first sight! It's really cost-effective, and the service you get for such a low price is amazing!
What a place, and what an experience! The whole package was definitely really cheap, and I had doubts about the quality of the stay, but they had delivered every promise made and the place was just as we expected it to be. The rooms were really cozy and spacious, and the food was so yummy! We were taken on a short trek by the guide, Nilesh, which we really enjoyed and got to see some amazing views on the way.
I am a fan of Uttarakhand more than Himachal. if you are a nature lover and can manage in the minimalistic resources with some incredible views of Himalayan peaks like Nanda kot then I would sya hit this deal. I thoroughly enjoyed the nature trails and short jungle walks.
Simply awesome. Went here on my birthday, was traveling solo and paid barely anything to celebrate my birthday at such surreal location. Loved it.
Superb
This two day tour is one of the most cost effective tours to see Himalayas from a different angle. Meals were offered as local Kumaoni dishes which were so tasty. There was bonfire, and many activities like trekking, bird watching, etc. to keep us entertained.
We stayed here as a group of friends on our college trip, and had a wonderful time. The huts were made of stone and were well maintained, the food was amazing, and we loved the sundown bonfire experience with music and games.
