"Thank you for the amazing trek. It was, for sure, one of my life's greatest adventures. We were lucky to see the Snow Bear and to go through many villages. The beautiful mountains, the people and the organization were all good, but most of all I would like to say that without (Guide) this trek would not be nearly as good as it was with him! His experience, calmness and knowledge are great. Dipen is by far the best guide I have traveled with."

Roop Kund Mystery lake

Roop Kund ( Mystery Lake )
Roopkund situated at a height of 5029m in the lap of Trishul massif. For the first time in 1898 it was discovered that many human skeletal remains where lying there in and around the lake. There are many stories to explain the findings but none satisfying to everybody. Hence the lake is also known as the "mystery lake”. The lake is surrounded by rock-strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks Nanda ghunti and Trishul. This lake has a special significance for goddess Nanda and her devotes. Little ahead Homekund, which is used as the base camp by mountaineers attempting Trishul peak.
