Roopkund is yet the country’s most popular trek and ranks 3rd in the best trek of INDIA, according to a poll by trekkers from IMF. The lake of mystery, hidden in the high reach of the Himalayas is guarded by the giants
Mount NANDA GHUNTI & TRISHUL , far from the civilized world.
The lake hides in it the mystery of giant human skulls and bones , which is often seen when we finally reach its abode. Legend has it an entire army was abolished on those heights of 16,500 ft which resulted in the skulls and bones present on the lake.
The change of scene on every day in camp sites, the vast meadows including Bedni Bugyal, the biggest of Indian high altitude, makes Roopkund so special for most trekkers.
The final summit day is tiring and once in a lifetime experience, as you get a feel of expedition level climbing and hard work, to be finally granted with a view of a emrald blue lake so high up.
Roopkund is not for the faint hearted , but for the most daring ones who seek adventure in their lives. If you are one such , check the plan below, and enjoy the pictures to know what to expect.
