Delhi- Rishikesh - Pipalkhoti - Kalpeshwar -Dumak - Toli- Rudranath -Ansuya Devi Temple- Tungnath- Kalimath- Gaurikund- Kedarnath - HaridwarDelhi Days 21

At an altitude of 4778m and set beneath the towering summit of Trisul (7120m) Roop Kund is sometimes referred to as the mystery lake on account of the large number of human skeletons (over 300) found, here. The skeletons are over 500 years old, and various theories have been proposed as to the calamity which must have deposited them here. En route to Homkund to pay homage to the goddess Nanda Devi, while crossing the precipitous bank above the lake, the pilgrims evidently lost their footing, with those higher up falling on their brethren below and the whole unfortunate party tumbling down into the icy depths of the lake. The vision of these long–dead pilgrims presents a rather gruesome spectacle, the atmosphere enhanced by the desolate nature of the landscape. Nevertheless Trackers with a penchant for the macabre continue to make the arduous trek to Roop Kund. There are two routes, one starts from Ghat and one other starts from just near (Kumaon) Gwaldam.
