Roopkund Trekking Tour becomes famous when a large number of Human bones reported. After that explorers and scientists try to explain the mystery but it helped in deepening the mystery rather solving it. Two theories emerged, and one is that these bones are of Gen. Zorawar Singh of Kashmir and his men who were coming back after raiding China-Tibet in 17th Century. The second opinion, which also believed by locals, is that large numbers of people are visiting Homkund trapped in avalanches and snowstorms and got killed. Not even a single man survived to tell the real story.
