Roopkund is a mysterious lake in the interiors of district Chamoli. The lake is rather shallow, with having a depth of only about 2 metres. The lake lies in a depression and is covered with snow for most parts of the year. When the snow melts, one can see human and equine skeleton remains. It is one of the most popular treks in Garhwal, thanks to these eerie views, as well as some really spectacular mountain landscape.
IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 3 pax is required to make a booking.
The trek to Roopkund is very scenic and passes through the magnificent Bedni Bugyal. It also goes through the outer periphery of the Nanda Devi National Park, and is one of the best treks to view the magnificent peaks here. The skeletal remains found in Roopkund lake have been preserved in these alpine conditions for centuries. It is believed that these are the remains of about 300 people who died about 500-600 years ago. There are many theories about these findings but none are definite. Hence the lake is also known as the Mystery Lake. Some believe the skeletons to be those of General Zorawars’ soldiers who died here in a vain attempt to conquer Tibet, while others maintain that they are the skeletons of the zealous pilgrims, who went on the Raja yatra to the base of Trishul.
