Roopkund Trek in the Himalayas

Roopkund Trek

Roopkund trek is one trail that’s unique, where you will gain altitude from 7750 feet to 15750 feet in hardly 4 days with few steep climbs. This is a trek where the trail goes through forest (Didina village and Ghairoli Patal), river crossing (Neel Ganga), Asia’s largest high altitude meadows (Ali Bughyal), beautiful campsite (Bedni Bugyal and Pathar Nachauni), steep climbs, holy place (Bedni Bugyal, Kalu Vinayak and beyond Roopkund), camping on snow (Bhagwabhasa campsite), pond full of skeletons (Roopkund), the Junargali Pass and the Mt. Trishul. Lots to see in hardly a week in this Roopkund trek trail. I would say that this trek is a must if you have plans to trek in India and you can happily add it to your To-Do list.

I managed to complete Roopkund trek which was organized by Indiahikes back in 2014 and is one of the best Himalayan trekking trails in India. You definitely need some practice before going to this trail as it’s not that easy when compared to Tarsar trek or Kashmir Great Lakes.
