The trekking experience was great. I had a really really fun filled trek. The beautiful surrounding, the bird’s eye view of the place, and everything else added more beauty to the travel experience. the roopkund was mostly frozen, and when we went close you could actually see the skeltons on the bed of the lake. oThis trip is something that I can never ever forget the final climb to roopkund was very difficult and tedious but it was worth it. I totally loved this trek. I wish I could take more such treks in the future.

Wow! So finally a big thing off my travel bucket list. A trek to Mystery Lake of Uttarakhand. Also known as the Roopkund Lake, this place is a must-trek spot for any avid traveller and trekker. Well, to start with this trek is not for everyone. To complete this trek you must battle many adversities. I was successfully able to do it, and hence I finished this trek. If you sense pride when I say this, yes I am proud. I worked out for 3 years to achieve this and I trekked other less risky and less intense mountains ever fortnight to improve my willpower and stamina. This trek is a must for serious trekkers.

Roopkund was something that I wanted to visit and see since the time I read about the rumours on it. However, as time went by, the rumours subsided and so was my eager. Recently, when my friends and I were thinking of out of the box places to visit, one girl suggested this, and we ended up visiting here. It is a nice vacation spot to take with your gang.

Roopkunda, one of the most mysterious and surprising trek-- each and everyday a different surprise waiting for you on next turn.. I have done this trek on may-2017. That trek contains everything from nature - forest, meadows, snow , rain and hailstorm too.. :-) Trek begins from the day you land on Kathgodam.. its a 10 hrs long and beautiful journey passing via beautiful hill stations of Uttrakhand.. once you cover that part you reach WAN\Lohanjung, a small peaceful village where you will forget all your tiredness of 10 hrs long journey. You will meet your guide here and from next day the real adventure begins.. Day 1: WAN - Ran bugad - Didina -> 4-5 hrs trekking - easy trek with gradual uphill and downhill through dense mountain forest.. campsite at Didina is amazing.. we reach there by mid 2 PM and then enjoyed rest of the day here.. Day 2: Didina - Ali bugyal - Bedini Begyal -> 4-6 hrs -> moderate day, very steep ascent in some part, most of the part is via dense forest, you need lots of stamina and water in first half , in later part you will trek on asia's largest green meadow with amazing view of snow capped mountains.. when we reach Bedini it starts raining very hard for 2-3 hrs.. it was thrilling as temperature is freezing during rain.. 10C.. Day 3: Bedini - patharnachuni --> easiest day.. trekking on almost a flat track and downhill.. I enjoyed a lot on that day, singing , photography , everything we did during this part.... no difficulties at all apart from height gain. so you need to be relax.. it took 4 hrs to complete.. Day 4: Patharnachuni - Kalu vinayak -Bhaguwabasa --> One of the tough day..trekking on Mud and snow at a very low temperature.. here we got really tested with our stamina and fear of height.. till Kalu vinayak its a difficult part as it was on mud and snow mixed slippery narrow and rough trek( steep climb).. On kalu vinayak we felt relax and enjoyed Ganesha's arti.. after kalu vinayak , till campsite trekking was on fresh snow, comparatively easy (descent only) but trek was narrow so you need to be very careful while stepping.. When we reach baguwabasa it starts raining or I can say hailstorm which lasts for 3 hours.. out campsite got completely covered in snow.. I haven't seen that much snow in my life.. once hailstorm stops, we came out from tents and started playing on snow.. you will fall in love with this campsite.. however you will feel headache here.. fortunately we didn't face this for a long time.. Only precaution drink as much water as you can and cover your self with woolen. temp is 0C and below here.. Day 5: Bhaguwabasa - Roopkunda- Bhaguwabasa - Patharnachuni - Bedini Summit day, for which we were awaiting for a long time.. a very long day almost 10 hrs of trekking..started very early at 4 AM..on that day our guide provided us crampon to wear on shoes as it was slippery and soft snow on trek.. crampon helped us a lot , without that it was almost impossible to trek.. from bhaguwabasa to ropkunda it took 3 hrs.. most difficult part of trek as it was on narrowest edge of mountain covered with snow.. very sharm turn where you have to be very very careful.. without guide it is pretty difficult.. on some turns i thought to moving back but our guide motivate us and finally we were able to complete.. I was speechless when I saw roopkunda.. lost in its beauty and peace for 10 mins and was senseless.. i wasn't that much excited and emotional when india won world cup.. finally all the efforts were paid a beautiful result.. we enjoyed there for 30 mins and then started back to reach Bedini .. we covered maximum distance and reach Bedini in late afternoon.. at Bedini we were welcome with a massive hailstorm which turn the entire green meadow in white layer..it starts raining from patharnachuni.. raincoat is must here.. Day 6:: Final day:: Bedini -Neel ganga - Wan ->steep descent via forest and then 2 km gradual ascent - easy day.. lots of walking, enjoyed a lot during forest pass , you can hear birds singing.. once you finish downhill part you will reach Neel ganga river.. we had a break and rest in neel ganga river water.. freezing cold but relaxing.. after that gradual climb for 2 km and then 1 km downhill to reach WAN.. Best part of entire trek:: Quick weather changes and maggie at every point.. Must carry :: raincoat, woolen and drink lots of water About me:: I am 31 year old guy with normal physique, not a regular gym guy with normal stamina.. but I must say that you should practice lots of walking and running before hitting this trek... it was my first trek and I enjoyed this a lot..

For years I have been dreaming about doing this trek to visit the haunting Skeletal Lake and finally this year i got the chance to do so, thanks to Thrillophilia. It was such a magical journey for me and my friends. We all were challenged to walk up the mountains but had a blast while doing so. And not to forget, the superb views of the peaks were amazing. Make sure to carry your ID proofs before starting this trek though because this is a once in a lifetime experience and you will not want to miss it.

The Roopkund trek experience was amazing,whole trek gives never forgetting moments. Team which includes Pankaj bhaiya(Guide),Naresh ji,Surendra ,Raju(Bhabhiji) whose hand made delicious food made us to climb there is really awesome. Also the destiny Roopkund & Junargali gives awesome view of Mt.Trishul as well as Nandaghunti. Beautiful Meadows of alibugyal and bedni bugyal will will wash treelines from your mind.Every tiredness is over ruled by this view. I suggest to choose thrillophilia for this exotic trek.
