A lot has been said and written about the Roopkund trek. But you can never get enough of this trek. It is the epitome of perfection, isn’t it? In this blog, Garima Jain has documented her first Himalayan trek to Roopkund in September 2016! She went on this beautiful journey with her husband. She says she go back to Roopkund a thousand times over! Wouldn’t we all?

Her blog is a collection of excellent pictures from the trek – the landscape, the trekkers, the campsites, the mountain dogs. It’s got it all!

Here is a small excerpt from the blog.

The view from the last campsite at Bhagwabhasa was fabulous. It was a combination of clouds and mountains, some with snow, and some without. As we were enjoying hot soup amidst the tall mountains it got all windy, rainy, sunny and suddenly there was this huge double Rainbow. None of us had seen such a big complete rainbow ever!
