This trek is of equal importance to trekkers as well as to historians. Roopkund is situated at a height of 5029m in the lap of Trishul massif. Also known as the mystery lake because of the human and animal skeletal remains many of which bear injury marks. A recent joint expedition of the Heidelberg University (Germany) and Garhwal University tried to unravel the mystery of the lake.

Two of the many explanations regarding these remains are:
1. These are the remains of a party of pilgrims on a yatra to the base of Trishul who could not cope with a sudden bad turn of the weather.
2. These are the remains of the Dogra General Zorawar Singh's army from Jammu which tried to invade Tibet in 1841, but was beaten and forced to find its way back home over the Himalayas.

The lake, surrounded by rock-strewn glaciers and snow clad peaks, is magnificent and enchanting. On the way to Roop Kund lies an extremely enchanting meadow, viz., Bedni Bugyal which is a treat to the eye.
