Roopkund Trek

Roopkund, Uttarakhand

Event Overview

If you are a person who likes mystery and adventure, the Roopkund trek is just the one for you! Since decade, Roopkund has been regarded with mystery as the enchanting landscape surrounding the kund is in stark contrast with a pile of several skeletal bones found there. An international team did uncover the mystery, revealing to us that those skeletal remains are of pilgrims from 850 AD, who faced an unusual severe hail storm which killed hundreds of them. The Roopkund trek takes you through the remote parts of Chamoli district in Garhwal and has adventure, beautiful landscapes and mystery, all waiting for you!
