Roopkund is a glacial lake nestled in the high mountains of the Uttarakhand Himalayas. Situated at an altitude of 16,500 feet, the lake is completely uninhabited and is surrounded by snow clad mountains. This 8-day, moderate intensity trek takes participants to the snow-covered lake through some fascinating routes.
The Roopkund trek is a physically demanding trek that can be completed by a first time trekker. But, be warned, it will push trekkers to their limits!
Scattered human skeletons were found around the Roopkund Lake, catapulting into the limelight. For this reason, it is also known as the Skeletal Lake or the Mystery Lake. This legendary trek offers a lot to offer in terms of views. Participants can stare in wonder at the mighty Mt. Trishul and Mt. Nanda Devi and the beautiful peaks of Mt. Nanda Ghanti, Nilkantha and Maiktoli Peak. The trail takes them through some of the loveliest open grassland meadows.
