Conquering the 4850m peak was like a dream come true for me. Comapred to my other treks; Pin Parvati, Hemkund and Roopkund, I would rank this one as the best. I was luck enough to join the trek at the last moment and once it started, it took me high! Those who haven't experienced the Pin Parvati, can enjoy magical views of the peak while in this trek. Pretty much difficult...so better be prepared for any kind of obstacle.

But, 'where there is a will, there is a way' got proved and we finally completed the trek so nicely. A huge amount of the entire credit goes to the experienced crew of guides. Their encouragement and support made it possible for us.

Roopkund Lake Trek

The Roopkund Lake is situated high up in the Garhwal Mountains in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. This lake is of much historical and religious importance. It was also called the Mystery or Skeletal Lake after a large number of human skeletons were found in it in 1942 by a Forest Officer.

Following this discovery, a number of scientists visited the lake to find out the reason for the skeletons being there and it was eventually concluded that the skeletons belonged to some pilgrims who were caught unawares in a flash hailstorm.

Due to the huge chunks of ice that came with the hailstorm, the pilgrims died due to injuries to their skulls. This story was aired in national and international media and since them the Roopkund Lake has become a popular tourist destination.


The trek to Roopkund Lake showcases the best of Himalayan beauty. The trek begins at Lohajung, which is situated at an elevation of 3200 metres and goes on for five days till you reach the lake, which is at an altitude of 5000 metres. The first couple of days will take you through beautiful villages, forests, rivers and Bugyals.

The air will get thinner and thinner as you ascend and gain altitude. So it is very important that you are in the best of health and fitness when you set out for this trek. Higher energy levels will allow you to adjust better with the changing environment and enjoy the views offered by the region. Your team leader will also offer you tips on how to cope with the changing levels of the atmosphere.

The trekking trail followed during the Roopkund trek coincides with that of the Raj Jay Yatra pilgrimage route. This is conducted during a festival dedicated to goddess Nanda Devi and the residents of nearby village participate in this festival dressed in their traditional attire.

Shimla

Why to visit in winters – The capital city of Himachal Pradesh is not only the best places to visit in Himachal Pradesh in winters, but this is also a hill station that is rich in its colonial history

What to do – What can be more tempting than to shop in the heart of town at Shimla, soak this winter into the surrounding area of Shimla at Ridge, or take a joyful train ride through Kalka and Shimla

What to see – Jakhoo temple has to be in the itinerary, appealing Christ church is worth seeing, get flattered by seeing the Kufri sceneries or see the tourists ski in the snow covered Kufri Mountains
