Roopkund – Mystery Lake

About Roopkund-Mystery Lake…(Above 16000 Feet from Sea Level)

The Roopkund-Mystery Lake is to a Himalayan trekker what the movie ‘Sholay’ is to a hardcore Bollywood buff. Just like Sholay is the complete Bollywood entertainer (it has action, drama, comedy, romance), Roopkund-Mystery Lake is the ideal Himalayan trek. Roopkund-Mystery Lake trek has snowcaps, meadows, lakes, forests, folklore; and yes, it has an intriguing flashback too. Roopkund-Mystery Lake is a mountain lake, lying in the Garhwal Himalayas in the Chamoli district of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Situated at a high altitude, the lake remains frozen almost throughout the year. Roopkund is also called the ‘Mystery Lake’, or the ‘Skeletal Lake’, on account of the several hundred human skeletons found scattered in and around the lake. This time spent amidst the mountains will remove the cob-webs from your mind and will thoroughly rejuvenate you. So what are you waiting for…..book this Roopkund-Mystery Lake Trek with your best buddies…
