Roopkund Trek


Description

General Information About Roopkund Trek

Roopkund Lake is Mystry Lake which situated at the height of 5029m (junargali), in lap of the Himalayan peaks Nanda Ghughuti (6310 m) &Trishuli (7120 m). This Lake also known as Mystery Lake because of human skeletons lying at the bottom and around of the lake, which will be visible when the ice melts. Many mythsare there about these skeletons but still it is a mystery. Roopkund is situated in ChamoliGarhwal district of Uttarakhand. TheRoopkund trail is a moderate to difficult type trek, taking us through forests, green meadows and water falls to high-altitude meadows of BedniBugyal&AuliBugyal. We can see the views of mountains like Trishuli& Nanda ghunguti’ respective heights of 7120m & 6310m. At this altitude the level of oxygen in the air is considerably lesser than what the lowland folks are used to, and the Evergreen Adventures team will give you various tips to enable you to effectively cope with this change. Being in good physical shape will ensure that you adapt to the thinning air quickly. Also, good fitness level will allow you more energy to enjoy the spectacular views without worrying about nagging bouts of altitude induced problems. So when you plan for this trek, also plan out a fitness regime for yourself.
