Roopkund Trek to Mysterious lake By Trekdi

27-May-2018 to 05-Jun-2018

About This Tour

Roopkund (locally known as Mystery Lake) is a high altitude glacial lake in the Uttarakhand state of India. It lies in the lap of Trishul massif and is famous for the hundreds of human skeletons found at the edge of the lake. The area is uninhabited, located in the Himalayas at an altitude of 5,029 meters. A shallow lake, Roopkund has attracted attention because of the human skeletal remains that are visible at its bottom when the snow melts. Many theories and opinions exist, from purely spiritual to scientific ones, attempting to explain the existence of these skeletons, which date back to 9th century. Because of the human remains, the lake has been called Skeleton Lake in recent times.

Things to carry

A postive mind set and a healthy body!
To carry your own luggage, you will need trek bag at least 48Liters capacity, depending on your luggage carrying tendency. We won't recommend you to carry luggage more than 65 lit as at that altitude it would be very tough to carry so much luggage.
At least 3-4 pairs of track pants to be carried along. The material should be of quick dry type. It is essential because body heat melts the snow on your clothes and wet your clothes. Easy dry material avoid your inconvenience because of wet clothes.
Carry good sports shoes with enough anti skid pattern on the bottom. Sports shoes with good rubber sole are the best. Do not go for running shoes. They are usually insufficient and have tendency to slip.
One set of travelling clothes. This set you can keep behind in hotel luggage and can pickup after trek.
At least 4 sets of socks
Monkeycap (warm material). Avoid hand made caps. A monkey camp with thick weaving is recommended as it protects you not from cold but from wind chill factor as well.
