I am going on a trek to Kuari Pass from 29th Dec 17 to 3rd.Jan 18. Since I have time to spend after that (my flight back from Delhi is on 7th Jan), I have decided to travel around Joshimath or somewhere in the Garhwali area.

Some ideas below, need some feedback please:
(I do not have a personal vehicle so will need to travel by the local taxis going around the villages.)

1. Auli, Mana
-I will already be briefly visiting Auli as part of the trek, is it worth spending 2-3 days after the trek?
- Will Mana be open?
- Can Mana be a one day to and fro trip from Joshimath if open?

2. Chopta
-I can go to from Joshimath to Chopta via Chamoli. Is this road open in winter?
-Is Chopta open in winter? Will I be able to find accomodation?
-Plan to go to Tungnath/Chandrashila while at Chopta. Is this doable in a day?

3. Any other suggestions? I'll of course be asking the locals as well.

I'm also thinking about posting photos and some description of the trip afterwards, if

Visit the hot springs at Tapovan, you can take a share jeep or easily walk there & back to Joshimath in a day.

You could do the Chopta Tunganath Chandrashila trek with the help of local guides. (atleast 2 days) I think you will be done with your trek on the 2nd afternoon - evening at Joshimath. Reach Chopta the same day if possible or early next day. So you can complete this trek by the 4th evening. Reach Haridwar on 5th or worse case scenario the 6th. Reach Delhi on 6th or eraly morning 7th. (this would be cutting the margins - do have a look before you finalize the trek)
Mana is out of the picture - access will be closed.
