Roopkund Lake, at around 5,000 meters, offers one of the most spectacular trekking routes with its stunning views of Trishul. It is also famous for the mystery surrounding it. This shallow lake still has the skeletal remains of some 300 people who perished swome 600 years ago in an unrecorded disaster. Trekkers have found human bones on the shore of the lake confirming this tragedy. Some belive them to be the remains of General Zorawar’s soldiers who perished here in a vain attempt to conquer Tibet while others maintain that they are the skeletons of zealous pilgrims undertaking the Raj jat, an important pilgrimage. to pay homage to Nanda Devi.
