Roopkund Lake is a glacial lake in Indian Himalayas surrounded by glaciers and snow-clad mountains. It is situated at an altitude of 5,029 meters (16,499 feet) with a depth of about two meters in Chamoli district of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Do you know why Roopkund is so popular amongst trekking community in Indian Himalayas? well, A Forest Officer during one of his expedition loses his balance and found thousands of human internal framework of bones on the verge of the lake and after that scientist from all over the world came here to resolve the mystery of Roopkund Lake. They carried out lots of research to find out the mystery behind the existence of skeletons near Roopkund lake, and at the end, they figured out that maybe these skeletons belong to some group of travelers who were trapped in a hailstorm and, that's why it is also known as a lake of skeletons. Of Course, you can not find them during winters when mountains and lakes are snow capped but when the summer arrive and snow melts you can see them at lakes bottom and this is the reason, Roopkund has become so much popular for trekking in India. Roopkund trek starts from Lohajung, a small beautiful village, located in Chamoli district in Indian Himalayas. Ideal elevation of about 2350 meters & the magical glimpse of the mountains makes Lohajung, starting point for Roopkund Trek. Every experience you will get during Roopkund trek is very unique. every year thousands of trekkers come here to just explore the charm of beautiful villages, incredible mountain views and of course this mysterious lake at high altitude. you just can not find this kind of combination just during one trek.

Me and my sons 19 and 17 years, were desperate to do a cycling tour in India after our Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya.I was nervous doing this kind of trip in India. However, our guide Akshay had planned out the safest tour and he was very safety conscious. It was an enjoyable 8-day trip and though there were some nerve-wracking road rides, most of the trip was awesome with few to no traffic. Would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it. Valley of flowers is simply a delight to the senses. I came to know about this trek through my friend circle. We got in touch with explorehimalaya.org and they arranged the whole trek for us in a jiffy. Uttrakhand is a home to most beautiful mountain peaks and I'm glad I have discovered the cream of it all. Kudos to the team and the support staff.
