Roopkund is a glacial lake in Uttarkhand located at an uninhabited high altitude location in the Himalayan range. It is also called mystery lake due to the human skeleton remains visible at its bottom.

The lake is also called skeleton lake. There are many theories regarding the presence of these skeletal remains.

Hey Drishti, can you explain that why the Roopkund is also named as `Mystery Lake`? Why are there skeletons under this lake? Is there any mysterious story behind this lake?
