Interested in visiting a lake of skeletons?

lake of skeletons 11 300x225 Interested in visiting a lake of skeletons?Roopkund is in Uttarakhand in India and is famous for its skeleton lake. This lake consists of about 400 skeletons. The actual reason for the death of all these people remains a mystery even today. Countless theories for the reason of this lake of skeletons were put forth through the past couple of decades. Many believed that it was a ritualistic sacrifice bestowed by the people who died themselves while scientists say that these people died because of an epidemic. The lake was discovered by a park ranger in 1942 by accident. After extensive research on the area, scientists were able to uncover the actual reason for the deaths. The scientists concluded that the group of people died from a large hailstorm in the region. They could not find any shelter in the open Himalayan mountains which lead to mass death. The lake is covered with ice for most part of the year. However, there are several treks that are conducted around the area and is a good option to explore if you want to get a glimpse of this skeleton lake.
