Roopkund Trek 2018

Roopkund Lake is situated at an altitude of 4700 mts. in the interior of the Chamoli district, Roopkund is famous for
the mysterious shallow lake of about 2 mts., with the edges covered with snow almost throughout the year. After
the snow melts, skeletal remains which are believed to be 500-600 year old, many theories explain the findings but
none seem satisfying. The lake is nestled amidst panoramic mountain scenery.
