Every 12 year a four-horned ram leads hundreds of devotees to this place littered with human remains.What then differentiates Roopkund from an eeriest of place out of Bam Stroker’s imagination is the striking beauty of the backdrop.Standing at 5029 mts,Roopkund has Trishul and Nandaghunti in arresting proximity.

This area is usually called is the 'mystery lake', since human skeletons and remains of horses from the poleolithic age were found here The beautiful mysterious lake is situated below the Trishul massif an altitude of 5029 mts above sea level. 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 theories 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.

The lake is rathershallow having a depth of 2m. The edges are snow covered for most part of the year. When snow melts, one can see human and equine skeletal remains, sometimes with flesh attached; well preserved in the alpine conditions. 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.
