About This Place

Roopkund is without a doubt the most famous trek in India. With an altitude of 16500ft(5,029m), this trek is a cheer to the soul with tracts of forest, meadows(by the way, they are among the biggest in Asia) and snow clad mountains which ends with a view of the mystery lake in the middle of nowhere surrounded with skeletons. The place is filled with folklores/ story of the nomenclature of the different base points (the ilks of 'horses don't go beyond ghodalotani') and ofcouse, the story about the origins of skeletons (the famous ones states how the entire caravan of a King perished near the lake due to hailstorms as a result of defying the Gods) and a Nat Geo mission on it. The trek will always leave you short of breath not for its trail but for its views and will bring out a Bilbo Baggins, the great story-teller in you.
