The Roop Kund Trek leads to the infamous Roop Kund or mysterious skeletal lake in Uttarakhand. Crossing ice and snow, ascending to a dizzying height of 16,000 ft, thin air, changing climate and hailstorms, make reaching Roop Kund one of the toughest. Try taking a selfie here. HolidayIQ Traveller Pramod Kumar says, “The way to Gopeshwar is full of adventure. There are many moments when you pray to reach there safely.”
