A trekking enthusiast is always on the lookout for new trekking destinations, which provide a new and unparalleled trekking experience. If there is a single place where experiences of various natures can be had, it has to be the northern part of India. The towering heights of the Himalayas are home to some of the least known and best experienced places, which can be trekked to, all round the year. A lot of these places are mystical and seem to be straight from the books of fantasies. Roopkund Lake in the Himalayas is one such mystical place, which is full of mystery and questions.
The Roopkund lake trek is for the experienced trekkers predominantly, and asks them to trek to the higher reaches of the mighty Himalayan peaks. But if the trekkers are ready to take this effort to head this high, there is indeed a treasure awaiting them – the treasure of witnessing some once in a lifetime experiences. These include gazing on towering heights, snowcapped peaks, streams, thick pine forest and the crown jewel itself – the mysterious lake of Roopkund. The lake is one of it’s kind in the world, and is surrounded with and full of skeletons from an unknown source and time. NatGeo did a special feature on the lake and showcased a researcher’s work from 1942 that tied these skeletons to AD936. The skeletons are supposed to be of a group of pilgrims who apparently were stuck in a torrential hailstorm, which killed almost all of them.
The trek is covered predominantly in the higher reaches of the mountains and hence requires assisting oxygen cylinders and conservation means. The trek can only be approached to during two months of the year – once post the monsoons (September and October) and once post the winters (May and June).
