The trek of Roop kund also known as mysterious trek or skeleton trek is located in the Himalayas in Chamoli, Uttrakhand. It is known as the mystery lake as human skeletons are found around the lake. It is estimated that around 300-900 people lost their lives over there, these skeletons are visible when the ice melts and the water of the lake is clear for us to gaze at. It is said that along with the skeletons other artefacts like iron spearheads and wooden arts were also found. According to native mythology the King of Kanauj, Raja Jasdhaval along with his pregnant wife and servants went on pilgrimage to Nanda Devi shrine, but on the way the group faced a storm and probably met an unfortunate end near the lake. The trek of Roopkund will start from the base camp village Lohajung and with each passing day you will encounter new shades of mother nature. Be it India’s one of the highest altitude village or the peaceful temple of Kalu Vinayak amidst the mountains and not to forget the mega destinationRoopkund. On a good weather day and if you’re lucky enough you will be able to spot the skeletons in the lake.The Roopkund lake is surrounded by mountains which are surpassing the clouds and are covered with snow, as the lake of Roopkund is itself under the shadow of Mount Trishul and therefore is being surrounded by a lot of high altitude mountain ranges
