The awesome journey started from the station Kathgodam itself where we could see the ubiquitous Pine and Fir trees that we had seen previously only in TV. We had a warm welcome from the UTT staff in Lohajung where we plucked some peaches and relished along with the briefing. We met the trek leaders, cook, support staff and fellow group members with whom we were to live like a family for the next 7 days. Along with the heavenly environment, the people with their simple ways won permanent place inside us. On the 2nd day we trekked to Didna village via Kuling - 12 kms stretch, half road and other half mountains and valleys. The family who had given us home stay in Didna village welcomed us with Rhododendron drinks. By this time natural spring water had been inveterate to us. Next day trek was to Bedni Bugyal via Ali Bugyal, the most beautiful and largest meadows of Asia - 12 kms stretch. For the first time I saw real snow before my eyes when Mount Trishul and Nanda Ghunti came in front of us. We faced heavy rainfall along the way where the ponchos and waterproof shoes became handy and saved us the whole trek. Next day was a 4 km trek to Pathar Nachauni. Each place has its own fascinating fable and folk lore described to us by the Trek leaders - Raghu, Rajat, Pradeep, Uday, etc. Next was another 4 km trek to Bhagwabasa where a little AMS started to peek in and temperature dropped steeply. Folowing early morning 0300 hrs, we started on the steep 3km trek to Roopkund crossing land, waterfalls, snow and ice; and it was all heavenly out there when we could see the ice covered lake with snow surrounding it like a white glass. We returned to Bhagwabasa the same day by evening. And next day descended to Lohajung via Wan village - 12 kms. Now having returned it feels, some part of our lives could never come back from those mountains.

Roopkund is a beautiful trek with heart-filling views throughout the trek. You travel from forests to meadows to rocky areas to snow in a matter of 4 days with landscape changing every day. Trek though tiring is worth trying even for beginners & first timers (like me). You just need to follow the trek leaders' guidelines and nothing can stop you from reaching the summit. Everything was decently arranged by Thrillophillia & UTT (local agency whose part we were). The only downside was that our group size was large around 28 people and we were mostly running behind the schedule. Food was okay, you can really not expect a lot when in mountains.Prepare for the trek in advance and if possible keep a day extra in reserve. Carry spare clothes and prepare for rain extensively because the weather in the bugyals & beyond is very unpredictable and you should be ready for everything. Must do trek. All the Best....

Wow! I am just awestruck from the beauty of the trek still. The trek was so poignant and beautiful that it left me speechless for so long. This trek is a perfect amalgamation of fun, beauty, and thrill. To start with 8000-16000ft of hiking and trekking the snow-capped mountains was super thrilling; it was just the best experience ever. Then, the gurgling brooks nearby just was fun and fascinating. To finish it up the beauty of surroundings especially the snow filled places was sheer brilliance. If you have not taken this trek in your life, you are missing something great. This is must trip for everyone who is in to or who is interested in trekking. I totally loved this trek; what’s more the trek is quite inexpensive too.

Wooo! what an amazing trip it was!!Thanks to the tour guide who explained all about the mysterious Roopkund lake. It was an amazing adventure to trek this huge mountains though it was tiring the spirit of the mountain kept us going and going. But after one point when I got fully immersed in the beauty of the lakes and mountain I forgot who I was , what I am doing? All I knew was that I have to trek all the way. That's the beauty of mountains.

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.

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.

Roopkund lake is eerily calm, yet so beautiful. The 8 day trek took us from Lohajung to Ghora Lutani and to Roopkund Lake and back. This was an amazing experience for us as this was our first group trek and it required some caliber on us to make it to the top.

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.

To be honest, I never knew something such as the Roopkund Trek existed. But when I came across this on the site thrillophilia.com, it intrigued me greatly. I immediately contacted the company and was very impressed with their prompt booking. Folks after having experienced this trek, I must say you have to try this at least once in a lifetime.

The whole of the journey was an amazing experience for our entire group. The challenges we faced during the trek kept us going and finally on the 6th day of our trek, we were beside the most mysterious pond. Seriously, the location, view and the stories relate to this lake really makes it a pond of several mystery.

I really want to take this trek once again. There might be hundreds of treks, but this one is one of its own kind. The gradual to difficult climb, the mesmerizing feel that exists during the trek and the mysteries of the lake, everything resulted in an everlasting memory in my mind.

The moment I was gazing the world from more than 15,000ft can be hardly described in words. As if the entire world is wearing the white colour and is all prepared to allure you to conquer them. You can hardly wait to complete this trek. Though difficult, it is totally worth. The natural beauty is the add-on of this trek and on reaching the lake, you will never wish to come back for sure. Lovely and purely enthralling trek!

Heard a lot of mysteries about the lake. But on reaching it, the only thing that kept me captivated is its divine beauty. Totally heavenly. I mean, such a gorgeous lake at that height surrounded with snow-white glaciers, evergreen forests and graceful mountains. It is a must for all the trek lovers.
