Roopkund trek is one of our favorite treks and we have run this trail since 2000. The Roopkund trek is also popular because of the several climbing objectives in this area which include the beautiful trident peak Trishul (7122m) and Ronti (6078m). At a height of 5229m Roopkund is also called Mystery Lake because of the unusual remains of humans and horse bones around it. The route of the Roopkund trek passes through delightful alpine pastures and snowfields and offers magnificent views of peaks such as Trishul, Ronti, Nanda Ghunti, Chaukhamba among others. It is also the same route that's taken in the famous Raj Jat Yatra that's held once in 12 years.
On Arrival in Rishikesh our trip leader will meet you outside Hotel Shivanta close to the police chowki near Laxaman Jhoola by 7:00 – 7:30 am in the morning. We will leave from here to Wan which is a 7-8 hour drive. At Wan we will stay at our own camp.
The trek to Bedni Bugyal will take you through beautiful green oak and rhododendron forest as we get over the tree line we are greeted with magnificent views of the 6000 and 7000m peaks all around. With packed lunch and leisurely pace, the trek concludes at Bedni Bugyal late in the afternoon.
Trek Duration - 6 Hours
Today after breakfast we will do a lesiurly hike to Ali Bugyal and will return back to Bedni for lunch.
The trail starts climbing soon after Bedni Bugyal and goes past more stark vistas. The hot lunch at Baggubasa is a welcome relief after the trek. If the weather is good and everyone is feeling good and strong then we might make an early attempt today.
Trek Duration - 4 to 5 Hours
The climb continues to the lake at Roopkund. While the route on the Roopkund trek will take most of the time, the return is a fairly easy descent.
Trek Duration - 6 to 7 Hours
Return to the pasture at Bedni Bugyal on the same trail that was taken on the way up. The reason we have a short day planned is because incase we do not make it to Roopkund on day 4 or 5 we will have time for a third attempt as well on Day 6 and still get back to Bedni.
Trek Duration - 3 to 4 Hours
We retrace the same trail back to Wan.
Post Breakfast we will depart from Wan and drive back to Rishikesh Town, expected time of reaching will be only post 4pm late afternoon.
