Roopkund


The Roopkund trek is popular because of the several climbing objectives in this area which include the beautiful trident peak Trishul (7122m) and Ronti (6078m). At a height of 5229m Roopkund is also called Mystery Lake because of the unusual remains of humans and horse bones around it. The route of the Roopkund trek passes through delightful alpine pastures and snowfields and offers magnificent views of peaks such as Trishul, Ronti, Nanda Ghunti, Chaukhamba among others. It is also the same route that's taken in the famous Raj Jat Yatra that's held once in 12 years.
