Roopkund Trek - An unforgettable adventure!

Two years back, my wife and I did the "Valley Of Flowers" trek in Uttarakhand. While the "Valley Of Flowers" trek covered considerable distance (65 km in 4-5 days), it was pretty convenient as we always got to sleep in tents and never had to face the wrath of nature. The Roopkund trek, however, was a totally different story. From living in tents to hiking in rain with the cold winds lashing against my face, the Roopkund trek has taken my trekking experience to a completely different level. So, how did I prepare myself for the trek? Who was part of the batch? And how did we end up trekking in such harsh weather? Read on to find out all about it.
