Roopkund trek is one of India's most successful treks, and it's almost picture perfect. The Roopkund trail emerges from magnificent dark woods to reveal Ali and Bedni Bugyal, India's most majestic high-altitude meadows. The path soon leaves the meadows and enters spectacular alpine terrain. Climbing to the Roopkund lake on snow is a thrilling experience. The beautiful Mt Trishul looms over the scene, getting closer as you climb higher until only air separates the trekker from Trishul at a ridge above Roopkund. The trail begins in Gehroli Patal's deep oak forests on the first day. The rustling of dry leaves, wind whistling through the trees, and birds cooing among the foliage are what you'll hear on a quiet day. Before reaching your campsite, the climb takes just 3-4 hours. You set up camp in a clearing in the centre of the forest, surrounded by ancient oak trees. The evening light on these leaves, as well as Mt Trishul, which peeks out from the horizon, is absolutely stunning. With a number of steep climbs and slick but enjoyable descents, the Roopkund trek provides just the right amount of adventure. No roller coaster can compare to the adrenaline rush of walking along a sharp, exposed ridge while holding onto a rope towards Junargali. Although the weather and time of day play a role in this part of the climb, if you want to be within breathing distance of Mount Trishul and Nanda Ghunti, this is the place to be. Aside from all of this, Roopkund Lake has a sense of mystery about it. Anthropologists, scientists, and historians have all been fascinated by the 300 human skeletons discovered at a height of 15,750 feet. Trek this trail and let our local guides (who also happen to be hikers) show you around.
