If you have gone for a trek anywhere in the Western Himalayas then you must have heard about the famous Roopkund trek. Roopkund is to treks what David Beckham is to football. It would be hard to match its combination of pristine high altitude lakes, meadows (bugyals), spectacular mountain views, alpine camps, secluded villages and pristine oak and rhododendron forests. The name of the trek is based on a magnificent lake that remains frozen all through the year. The Lake is a glacial lake at an altitude of 5029 metres which lies in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand in NDBR (Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve). Located at the high elevation and enclosed by the mountain range from all sides, this lake offers the immense beauty of nature. One such trek that is the dream of every trekker is Roopkund.
