Roopkund, from where another trek goes to Pindari Glacier.
Kund means "Pond" in Hindi. The pond is at around a height of 5300 m,
beneath the towering summit of Trisul (7120m).
This mysterious lake was famous in the early sixties because of the existence
of more than 300 hundreds human and animal skeletons visible beneath the surface.
Teams of anthropologists visited this site to establish facts about the remains thought to be
over 500 years old, probably pilgrims en route to Homkund to pay homage to the goddess
Nanda Devi, who were trapped by avalanches and snowstorms in the 14th century.
Other theories hold that the skeletons are the remnants of an army of the
Dogra general from Jammu, Zorawar Singh of Kashmir,
coming back from a raid to Tibet in the 17th century.
However, it is one of the most popular treks in the Garhwal division
it abounds in spectacular mountain scenery.
The panoramic view of the Western Himalaya and the undulating
alpine meadows of Bedni leaves an great impression.
