Roopkund Lake Trek
Sat, May 13, 2017, 6:00 AM – Fri, May 26, 2017, 9:00 PM IST
Roopkund is situated at a height of 5029m in the lap of Trishul massif. It is also known as Mystery Lake since human skeletons and remains of horses were found here. The lake which is surrounded by rock strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks is magnificent and enchanting. The mystery lake of Roopkund has brought here many travellers since the discovery of human skeletons in the lake and the glacier descending into it. For many years the origin of the skeletons remained a mystery. Some thought it to be the remains of General Zorawar's Army that lost its way while returning from Tibet.
