A Mysterious Journey of Roopkund Trek

Roopkund is a small water body that the people know as Skeleton Lake or Mystery Lake. It is one of the tourist spots on Roopkund Trek. It is located in the Himalayas, deeply covered and surrounded by snow glaciers which make it very less visible from afar.

This place is a very popular trekking place because of the mystery and lot of stories behind this. It is situated in Uttrakhand, India at a high altitude of 5029m. This place was discovered by the Hari Kishan Madhwal, a forest range in Nanda Devi National Park in 1942. The height of the lake Roopkund is 16500 feet from sea level.

The Roop Kund Lake became frozen from the top in winter. But its transparency can make you see the skeletons at the bottom of the lake which makes this place scary. In summer the floating bones in the lake are the views of the time.
