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).


I saw no skulls and bones. It was partly frozen. And our guide didn’t let us go down. Pavan earlier saw some.
