Roop Kund Trek With TAJ MAHAL

Duration : 15 Nights / 16 Days

RoopKund becomes famous when large number of Human bones was reported. After that explorers and scientists have tried to explain the mystery but it helped in deepening the mystery rather solving it. Two theories have emerged and one is that these bones are of Gen.Zorawar Singh of Kashmir and his men who were coming back after raiding China-Tibet in 17th Century. Second opinion, which is also believed by locals, is that large numbers of people visiting Homkund were trapped in avalanches and snowstorms and got killed. Not even a single man survived to tell the true story. It is situated in CWM of Trishul and this is again a positive factor for unpredictable change in weather in Himalayas.
