Roopkund trek tests our stamina and internal strength, after a days long trekking and sightseeing you will get highly tired and so trekking is not so easy here. Camping is quite restful and sightseeing includes exquisite places. I have seen nothing more scenic than the roopkund lake. Enjoyed the overall experience.

    Trekking in Roopkund begins from Kathgodam and next stopage point is Lohajung which is also a great site for exploring located at the height of 7500 feet. The journey will take not more than 10 hours, which includes one or two breaks. The trekking is long and without taking adequate breaks it will be though as well. Kumon will be your next stoppage and from there you can also spot the great shivalik range which looks wonderful. Next you will have reach Gwandam of Gharwal and the last point would be the Roopkund lake. During your entire journey you will see large coniferous forests and the half snow capped peaks. It is an interesting place to spend your next holiday.

    Spectaular hills, snow on the peaks, beautiful deep valleys and dense forests are the major attraction of Roopkund trekking. The trip can be initiated from lohajung area then you cross the didna village, gwaldam and gharwal regions, and each of these places are the perfect campsites. Trekking is absolute fun, you will embark on high mountain ridges and also cross the river stream of neel ganaga tributary. So after passing through the dense coniferous trees you will reach roopkund trek. Enjoy being at the lake side view and make your holiday memorable.

    i loved trekking at gwaldam and ail bugyal peaks, it was quite challenging. you need to first ascend and then walk downhills where the utmost care is required. Trekkers love this kind of trails. Rest was just okay. Camping can be done easily since the grounds are flat and actually these are the grassland that shepherds use for grazing their animals. The forests also welcomes you to go inside and explore different green trees. The large lake of roopkund is the final destination where you can spend good quality time. overall for me it was a great adventure.

    Roopkund trek gives is actually the combined trekking in all locations be like lohajung, deval, and gharwal peaks. Exploring the didna kuling village is a nice option that will keep ip interest in the journey. There is a small river stream fed by neel ganga that is worth watching. Above all comes the roopkund lake, beautiful and magnificent surrounded by mountains and trees present on the banks. It is an absolute heaven.

    While reaching Roopkund trek you will experience the serpentine curves of road before Lohajung area. Roopkund is actually famous for having a beautiful lake having crystal clear water and a perfect destination for trekking lovers. Since it is near Gharwal region so trekkers can also extend their trekking trip to other himalayan peaks.
