Most Enchanting Pictures of Roopkund Trek

Roopkund is a mountain lake, lying in the Garhwal Himalayas in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The quintessential Himalayan trek, Roopkund is blessed with snowcaps, meadows, lakes, forests, folklore; and yes, it has an intriguing flashback too. Situated at a high altitude, 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. Scary, right?

There are two time windows in a year when you can do this trek – once after winter from mid-May to mid-June, and once post monsoon during September & October. If you want to have some fun with snow then you can choose the post-winter variant, or if you prefer lush green Himalayan meadows, you can choose the post-monsoon variant. Marked by pure air, the poignant greens and the effervescent blues, Roopkund trek takes you to a different world that leaves you lasting memories.
