The journey to Roopkund is an enjoyable experience. All along the way, one is surrounded by mountain ranges from all sides and the High Altitude Grasslands (called "Bugyals" in the local dialect) are a sight to behold. The trek is tough at times, as the altitude is the main factor with the added unpredictability of weather at such altitude adding to the challenge.
One of the most beautiful locations in Garhwal Himalayas, the Roopkund Lake attracts trekkers not only for its beauty, but also as a result of the mystery that surrounds this high altitude lake.
A trekker's paradise this lake has recently been catapulted to fame by the televised National Geographic documentary "Riddles Of The Dead: Skeleton Lake" as remnants belonging to more than 500 people have been found as locals believed that even more than six hundred people perished near the lake – a long time ago.
