Roopkund is situated at a height of 5029m in the lap of Trishul massif. This is usually called the 'Mystery Lake' since human skeletons and remains of horses were found here. There are two explanations regarding this:
1. They are the remains of a party of pilgrims on a yatra to the base of Trisul who died when bad weather closed in.
2. They are the remains of the Dogra General Zorawar Singh's army from Jammu who tried to invade Tibet in 1841, was beaten off & forced to find its way back home over the himalaya.
The lake, surrounded by rock-strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks, is magnificent and enchanting.
On the way to Roopkund lies an extremely enchanting meadow, viz., Bedni Bugyal which acts as a treat to the eye and a natural relaxing resort to the body.
