Hey there..What is the best time to do Roopkund trek, specifically to see the skeletons ?

25/11/2016

Hello Rakeshji,
Thank you for the valuable inquiry..The best time to see the skeletons in roopkund trek is mid september to first week of november.

25/09/2016

Amazing scenery way from bounds of technology, vehicular pollution, electricity & mobile. Its pure nature at its very best. Go there to experience the true beauty of untouched nature.If you are adventurous then definitely go.The presence of a large number of human skeletons adds a mysterious aura to the lake.

13/09/2016

We booked Roopkund trek package through Aahvan Adventures.We are 9 friends.This is a wonderful trek for mountain lovers and if you want to see the skeletons for which the lake is famous then you should prefer doing the trek in sept-oct.

08/09/2016

Personally it was my first time snow moment.Apart from the snow,the frozen lake and the skeletons are good mysteries to remember.The trek is very steep in parts with some glacier travel near the lake. You require stamina and good acclimatization to be able to complete the trek.

30/08/2016

Total 8 days was an amazing journey for me. walking through the river stream, thick forest, a vast open grassland, the rocky path and finally the white snow paths. the valley was so quite and peaceful, and also had really small villages on the way. there were a lots of silk farms in the lower side of the trek.An amazing journey with amazing team was the memories i created… I would actually thank team aahvan for this trip.

29/08/2016

Roopkund Trek has a mystical history with remains and skeletons of humans and horses spotted here that are believed to be from the Palaeolithic Age (500-600 years ago).Heard a lot of mysteries about the lake. But on reaching it, the only thing that kept me captivated is its divine beauty,totally heavenly. I mean, such a beautiful lake at that height surrounded with snow-white glaciers, evergreen forests and graceful mountains.

23/07/2016

Roopkund trek was one amazing adventure. The entire region is a beautiful fusion of rugged terrain and greenery. Loved the entire experience. The trekking was fun indeed. Glad I did this tour!!!It was such a magical journey for me and my friends.Thanks team Aahvan adventures

23/06/2016

I’ve toured twice with Aahvan Adventures ! Last trip is Har kin Dun trek and this year Roopkund trek. Both trips were well guided. The hotels and restaurants selected were very good.Most importantly the guides were friendly, super helpful, and so much fun to hang out with!! They made the trip so enjoyable, even though it was a more difficult trek than I expected. Thanks to them, it was made easy.

07/06/2016

Prompt response and good customer service. Have booked roopkund trek with best rate.It was an amazing experience! The team was superb.I just loved the way Team Aahvan treated customers. Hat’s off to Team Aahvan Adventures for my great trekking experience in Himalaya…

28/05/2016

Every one need change. We usually go to picnic for that change and mostly with our family and friends. I have changed that thing. I have chosen trekking and I went their without my friends and family.If I climb mountains then I can fight with my every problems. I would like to suggest this trek in India. I enjoyed this trip very much.Trekking in India I must suggest to go from Aahvan Adventures because of their supportive nature, helping team and so much experienced and well trained guide.

13/05/2016

Everything about the mountains, the forests and the serene lakes is something riht out of a cold nights tale.the place is simply breathtaking ! after having experienced this trek, I must say you have to try this at least once in a lifetime.

16/04/2016

This is a trek you will never forget easily! The Roopkund trek gave me the chance to see and meet so many new and amazing people! We have a group of 11 people, went for this trek to know what is so great about the lake and we were truly baffled at the amazing beauty of the place!

28/10/2015

I have contacted so many companies for this Roopkund trek, and I got best package of this trekking trip from Aahvan Adventures. It was worth to choose this trek along with aahvan adventures. Best cost, best service, best guides, best team, and what other can I say. Thank you Aahvan Adventures for making my trip so wonderful and memorable.

I always wanted to go visit this mysterious lake. I may not be a avid trekker but a traveller and the trek to Roopkund was a dream come true for me. The trek from Lohajung to Roopkund leaves you mesmerized! I cannot explain in words. Please visit this place as soon as you can!

28/07/2015

26/04/2015

The trekking experience in Roopkund was not only adventurous but also immense wonder and mysterious! I joined a group of adventurers and headed for this trek to Roopkund and I wrote this review to shout out to all those people who love travelling!

17/04/2015

Had an wonderful time on this trek. The whole experience was one of its own. The place is simply breathtaking! There were times when the trek got slippery or difficult, but it was worth it! Must visit!

09/04/2015

Had an marvellous time! Trekked almost 5000m and felt the absolute adventure of the climb within us! Beautiful place, good food, good people and many memories for keeps.

15/11/2014

The Rookund trek is all about beauty, mysterious and skeleton lake. Roopkund Lake has always been on my bucket list and it finally became a reality! Something I will never forget, we actually saw skeletons of age old lying at the bottom of the lake, as we went trekking in June when the snow melted. It was a pretty scary yet fascinating sight.

28/08/2014

The beautiful surrounding, the bird’s eye view of the place, and everything else added more beauty to the travel experience. This was a well-organized and a very pleasant trek, in short. Highly recommended.

25/06/2014

This trip is something that I can never ever forget the final climb to roopkund was very difficult and tedious but it was worth it. I totally loved this trek. I wish I could take more such treks in the future.

04/05/2014

Really a beautiful place! The trek is not that difficult – one suggestion instead of focusing on the completion of trek – enjoy the amazing snowy hills and clear sky. Lovely experience!
