I alongside Chitwan and Tanushree and Tanya went for trekking to Roopkund in May 2017. The choice for trekking to Roopkund was because of two reasons (1) needed to have a different kind of get-away than the typical ones (2) test our body and soul. As we are trekkers, we would not like to go for to straightforward trek as it would have invalidated the very point and furthermore did not have any desire to go for an extreme trek as a result of the absence of trekking background. So we look for trekking companies and we chose Travel Banjare
Something about Roopkund:
At a height of 4850 m (some say 5000m) in the inside of the Chamoli district, Roopkund is renowned for being a mystic lake; it is loaded with skeleton remains which are found to be 500-600 year old. The Nanda Raj Jat yatra happens in this are. At the of the Roopkund Trek is surrounded by snow-covered peaks and gradually descents to it is through thick woods and fields. It is a breathtaking view and worths every ounce of the strength we used to get here.
Trek isn’t simple by any standard; most sites who rate trekking to Roopkund rate it as difficult. In the month of May-June, unquestionably it is a difficult trek for non-trekkers, in September it can get easier. You can’t attempt this trek without legitimate arrangement. The arrangement must be through running and exercise, an energetic stroll with few spurts of running for 5-6 km for every day and for 30 to 60 days before trekking is the must. One can trek for a day without training yet following day he will feel tired and won’t appreciate the trek. Indeed, even the individual who feels they are sufficiently healthy must get ready for no less than a month preceding trek.
Another piece of arrangement is garments and types of gear. I should say that footwear has a lot of significance. It is the most critical thing one ought not to disregard. Shoes can be from Woodland, Head or Quechua. My Quechua Forclaz 500 served me well. Another things which get missed are great goggles (must for snow), trekking post (ordinary danda can supplant standard trekking shaft however trekking shaft makes a difference). It is accessible with Wildcraft and Basecamp).
Boarded Jhelum expresses from Pune at 17.20 hrs on 11/05/12. After a tiring and a long travel of 29 hrs got down at Hazrat Nizamuddin station at 22.00 hrs. We needed to additionally get Ranikhet Express from Old Delhi Railway station at 22.40 hrs We were late and under strain as odds of missing train to Dehradun posed a potential threat on our trek.
Just as an option to Dehradun, for the chance if we had missed the train, was boarding a bus from Anand Vihar bus stand. Go sitting for 8-10 hrs. My brother picked us up from Hazrat Nizamuddin station and raced .old Delhi station, where we reached only 10-15 minutes before the train left, just to discover that it is 45 min late. Boarded the train; inside the train, there were individuals of every age and over half were carrying trekking rucksacks, the environment in the train was jolting; individuals were discussing their treks.
A large portion of explorers was going to Dehradun and further on some trip. We achieved at an early hour toward the beginning of the day; we all gathered outside Dehradun Railway station for the Roopkund Trekking; four of us and 6 different trekkers. I was told that 4 out of 6 have left for unseen circumstances and just two will join.
