Roopkund is situated in the Chamoli district of Gharwal at a height of 5029m and is set beneath the towering summit on the lap of Trishhul massif (7120m). Here you can find over 300 mysterious human skeletons and remains of horses which are more than 500 years old.
Hence, this area is usually referred to as the ‘mystery lake’. Various theories have been proposed about the skeletons. One of them goes as a group of pilgrims en route to Hemkund to worship Nanda Devi, lost their footing and tumbled down to the icy depths of the lake. The trek of Roopkund passes through lush green grassy lands and coniferous forests clinging onto the slopes of hills. The trek thereafter winds its way along the Pindar River. The highest Point is 4620m in Roopkund trek. Come to witness the mystery unfolding before your eyes.
