The lake became famous after 300+ skeletons found near the lake. Roop kund is located in Chamoli District of Uttarakhand. It is believed that in 9th century due to hailstorm group of people died and skeletons are remained here. Some of them are from 18th century as well. Roopkund is located on the lap of Trishul mountain. Trishul peak is 7120m and Nanda Ghunti nearby is 6310 m high. Due to higher altitude the water in lake only melts one or two months in summer.
