Event Description

The Roopkund Trek is to a Himalayan trekker what the movie ‘Sholay’ is to a hardcore Bollywood buff. Just like Sholay is the complete Bollywood entertainer (it has action, drama, comedy, romance), Roopkund is the ideal Himalayan trek. This trek has snowcaps, meadows, lakes, forests, folklore; and yes, it has an intriguing flashback too. Roopkund is a mountain lake, lying in the Garhwal Himalayas in the Chamoli district of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Situated at a high altitude, the lake remains frozen almost throughout the year.

Roopkund is also called the ‘Mystery Lake’, or the ‘Skeletal Lake’, on account of the several hundred human skeletons found scattered in and around the lake. Roopkund Trek is the perfect route to showcase the surreal Himalayan beauty and it the perfect trek to initiate you into high altitude treks. The trek starts from Wan and after gradually trekking uphill for 5 days you will reach Roopkund which lies at approximately 5000 meters above sea-level. At this altitude the level of oxygen in the air is considerably lesser than what the lowland folks are used to, and the Team Explorers will give you various tips to enable you to effectively cope with this change. Whatever the season, the weather in the mountains is delicately balanced, and can go from sunny to cloudy in minutes. This adds another dimension to the adventure, and you should be equipped with wind and water proof clothing to face these weather changes.

The route followed on the Roopkund trek overlaps with a pilgrimage which occurs every year, called the Raj Jat Yatra. The Roopkund trek is a most enriching experience for the body and the soul. This time spent amidst the mountains will remove the cob-webs from your mind and will thoroughly rejuvenate you. So what are you waiting for… this camp with your best buddies…
