About this place -

Roopkund, a lake at 16000 feet in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttaranchal, frozen for most of the year is a prime trekking destination for its natural and astounding beauty. The trail to Roopkund passes through some of the spectacular and exotic landscape of Himalayas with long stretch of oak forest, alpine meadows, green pastures and snow fields. Roopkund offers everything for a nature enthusiast and set amidst one of the most picturesque backdrop. View of Trisul (7120 meters) and Nandaghunti (6310 meters) are truly mesmerizing from Roopkund trail. Roopkund is often called Mystery Lake because Skeleton remains of hundred of people were found around the lake.The idea behind this article is to address most of the typical questions from the trekkers to Roopkund Lake.A shallow lake, having a depth of about two metres, 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 CE. Because of the human remains, the lake has been called Skeleton Lake in recent times.
