After a flight from Bangalore to Delhi, we boarded the train to Kathgodam which lies literally at the foot of the Himalayas. From there we rode Sumos (MUV) towards Lohajung, the base camp for Roopkund Trek by India Hikes. We reached Lohajung by nightfall.
The ride to Lohajung felt like home, Mizoram. Except for the different vegetation and really tall Himalayan mountains.
Narrow Escape. Everytime I look at this photograph, I think of Aerosmith – Livin’ On The Edge.
Roopkund (Skeleton Lake) is a glacial lake in Uttarakhand state of India famous due to more than five hundred human skeletons found at the edge of the lake. The location is uninhabited and is located in Himalaya at an altitude of about 5,029 metres (16,499 feet).
