To The Mysterious Lake: Roopkund!
Roopkund is yet the country’s most popular trek and ranks 3rd in the best trek of INDIA. The lake of mystery hidden in the high reach of the Himalayas is guarded by the giants NANDA GHUNTI & TRISHUL, far from the civilized world. The lake hides in it the mystery of giant human skulls and bones , which is often seen when we finally reach its abode. Legend has it an entire army was abolished on those heights of 16,500 ft which resulted in the skulls and bones present on the lake.
Danger is very real , but fear is your choice. Join us if you think you have it in you to decipher the mystery.
