Our first trek was exciting. It was Roopkund. One of the best treks in India. Thanks thrillophilia for suggesting us. Trek was organised in a very professional way and thoroughly enjoyed out trek all 6 days. Now this is becoming addictive. Planning for rupin pass soon with Thrillophilia again.

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..

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.

This lake is damn-damn spooky! Especially while trekking if you come across the scattered skeletons - its is indeed a terrifying scene but then that's the fun about this trek. The trekking was great, loved the entire experience. The trek got a little challenging at times but yeah I finally managed to complete the trek.

Well, there is always such hidden places in Uttarakhand that makes it all the more interesting for me. I loved the entire trekking experience- Roopkund is one place that will give you pleasures and happiness as well as thrills of terror as not everyday you come across so many scattered skeletons.

You are not a trekker untill you take this trek. Trust me, this is the kinda trek you would love to go for again and again. The mysteries that surrounds the lake, forget about them and just enjoy the awesomeness of the lake and the Himalayas. It was the best ever till now for me.Made plans to visit again!!

Yes, this was the trek I was waiting for quite long. To be honest, the stories about the Roopkund has always fascinated me and yes, after joining the trek, all my fascinations got real. You can expect some challenges on the way but the total feel and beauty of the trek will make you forget everything.

Trekking through the dense forests, challenging trails and the awesome twists and turns, we finally completed the trek. And yeah, the mysteries and stories about the lake came all real as we reached the lake. You can feel the same while you walk around the Roopkund lake. Truly an amazing experience !

I have to say this, this is my favourite holiday spot so far in terms of the view, the cleanliness and the adventures that we got to do! Lovely place and really amazing people as well who came with us on the trek. Make sure you spend a few hours in the forests around Raun Bagad.

The Didina Village is really beautiful and makes me want to settle down here, far away from Mumbai; even though the city is awesome! The Bugyals here are worth a sight and I recommend this place for everyone!

Roopkund - mystery lake or skeleton lake: I am not a person who believes in horror stories. However, this particular story around the Roopkund always amused me. I thought to just try and see what the fuss is all about. The mystery lake is just another glacial lake and long ago it seemed to have filled with skeletons. Otherwise, it is a nice pretty place to have a trip.
