Event Overview

About the Tour :
Roopkund Lake is situated at an elevation of 5,029 mts above sea level in the base of Trishul peak and Nanda Ghunti. Roopkund is also known as ‘Mystery Lake’ since human skeletons and remains of horses from the Paleolithic age was found here. The lake is nestled amidst panoramic mountain scenery, surrounded by rock-strewn glacier. Roopkund remains frozen for almost all the time of the year. The skeletal remains around Roopkund are believed to be 500-600 years old.

While traveling to Roopkund you get a chance to trek through villages rich in pahadi culture, visit high alpine meadows offering enchanting greenery and the sacred Bedni Kund holding crystal clear water. The trek goes steep to Roopkund from Bedni Bugyal. Bhaguwabasa is situated at an elevation of 4,100 mts above sea level, situated 5 kms short of Roopkund. The weather is unpredictable at such high altitudes so do carry raincoats.Roopkund Legend- The great ‘Nanda Devi Raj Jat Yatra’ is held in every 12 years from Nauti village near Karnaprayag to Hemkund near Roopkund. This yatra is dedicated to Goddess Nanda.

A large number of people from Garhwal and Kumaon take part in this tough holy yatra. Many stories were also made about the mysterious human skeletons of Roopkund. According to research it was indicated that the people were from the 12th century to the 15th century who died of hailstorm. But it is still a mystery that what were those people doing there.
