Share taxi to Roopkund

Hi Amar

Taxi would cost you Rs 3500-4000 from Kathgodam to Debal. But you know what, take a taxi from Kathgodam to Lohajung direct. It will cost you the same but you reach the base of your trek in...

Roopkund rain/snow in June

You do get snow/rain in late May/early June in the Roopkund area. I'll put it this way: you won't see snowfall at Bedni, but above Bhagwabasa (actually slightly above Chinarnag, there is...
