Roopkund: A mysterious lake

Roopkund is located in the chamoli district of Uttarakhand. It is among top trekking destinations currently in India. The lake is located in the midst of great snow clad mountains like mt. Trishul and mt. Nandaghunti at the altitude of 15, 480 ft. Human skeletons are found surrounding the lake. The overall trek is tough and not for faint hearted or physically weak people. But the difficulty is worth taking because of the breath- takinh views and the natural scenes on the way. During the course of the trek, one passes through ali bugle and bedini bugyal, asia's largest meadows at the height of above 12000 ft. The view from there is spetecular. The main joy of the trek is bugle. As such the roopkund itself is not that beautiful as it is hyped, especially in sept-oct but the way to it is incredible and worth visiting. During may-june season, we find snow and it adds to the thrill.

Poovar Overview

Poovar is a small coastal fishing island at the southern tip of Thiruvananthapuram district in Kerala. The village is embraced by a beautiful beach on one side and the backwaters on the other.

During high tides, an estuary links it to the sea. It is very close to harbor of Vizhinjam and is a network of lagoons, lakes, canals, estuaries, deltas, interspersing forty-four rivers that join the Arabian Sea. Located 38km from the State capital, a fifteen-minute boat ride reaches you at Poovar.

Poovar has been a trading centre and port in ancient times where timber, sandalwood, ivory and spices were traded. According to legends the port Ophir where King Solomon's trading ships landed is said to be Poovar. Another legend describes this as the place as where Maharaja Marthanda Varma was given protection from his enemies by the powerful merchant, Moosa Marikkar. It is said that the picturesque sight of red kovala flowers floating in the Neyyar River led the Maharaja to describe the river as pu (flower) ar (river) or the river of flowers.
