The Roopkund trail climbs out of splendid dark forests suddenly bursting into Ali and Bedni Bugyal, arguably India’s most beautiful high altitude meadows. This trek connection with so many mythological stories, which is also another positive side of this trek. Even the footprint of these stories are founded here till now. Roopkund Trek continues the inherent legacy and fame of the place and is probably the most treaded of the medium duration treks in India. Roopkund Trek can be easily divided into three parts – early village and mountain river stage, middle bugyals and bigger lakes, and last summit or climb stretch. The route taken goes through dense forests with plenty of Rhododenderon trees (Buransh), the red flowers of which are used to extract and make a juice.
