 Roopkund, India

www.roopkundtrek.co.in

One of the largely trekked mountains around the world, Roopkund is also known as ‘skeleton lake’. The peak is breathtaking with a beautiful combination of the sun shining on the snow and a spotless blue sky right above. But what makes it an absolutely sought-out mystery, the likes of a horror movie, is the presence of human skeletons scattered at several places. These skeletons date back to 9th century. There’s little evidence of whether it was a place of human sacrifice, a spot of massacre or simply the case of travellers getting lost and dying. Trekkers around the world hike this peak just to experience how it feels to sleep in a camp alongside human skeletons.

Sometimes unfinished business creates mystery, just like this one…
