    Hello Mr Devkant Sangwan,

    First of all, I would like you to thank for the excellent info provided on the website. I have been to this place once in the month of september and I am planning to go there again by the end of this February, 2014. But it is mentioned in the website that it will be opened only from the month of June. Can you please clarify whether a visit is possible in Feb or early March. And I also wanted to ask whether Auli and the Cable Car services will be open or not in those months. Hoping that you can provide this information.

    With Regards,
    Ajit Kumar
