The trek to Roopkund is a real adventure. Not only is it more challenging compared to other treks, but the story behind the place makes it very intriguing. 

In fact, for an unknown reason, the lake in Roopkund is surrounded by human skeletons from different regions and times. This strange discovery gave the lake its second name: "Mysterious Lake."

The trek is full of grandiose landscapes and diverse flora and fauna. It is located in the Chamoli District of Uttarakhand at a breathtaking height of 16 470 feet (5020m) above sea level, from where you will get an impressive view of the Himalayan mountains of Trishul and Nanda Ghunti. 

It changes with every season and is beautiful almost year long.

What our clients say about it

Roopkund trek is an experience of a lifetime, and doing it with such an experienced trekker like Himanshu made it more enjoyable and informative. 

I did the treks twice with Himanshu, and its beauty varies with every different season. The first time, we went in the rainy season. The forest was dense, and the meadows were covered with vast grassland with different colored flowers all over. The second time we went to Bedni Bugyal (meadow on the way to Roopkund) in the winter just after a snowfall. The forest was full of snow, and the meadow turned from a vast green land into a snowy desert. 

Apart from the beautiful landscape, we could see different flora and fauna, which we can experience only on these Himalayan treks. We saw Himalayan deer, Uttarakhand’s state tree ‘Buransh’, Uttarakhand’s state bird ‘Monal,’ and Uttarakhand’s state flower ‘Bramhkamal’ which grows only between 10000 ft to 15750 ft above sea level. At the summit, we saw mesmerizing Roopkund Lake surrounded by ancient human skeletons believed to be from the 9th century.
