  6. Firstly I never knew about this- Roopkund, the Skeleton Lake of India. It is rather unnerving to stand over a lake and see a huge pile of skulls and bones tangled up under the water’s surface. I am now left wondering who are they, and most importantly how they got here in the first place, for this lake is 16000 feet above sea level with nothing but ice peaks and frozen glaciers. I googled it after I read its mention in your post and came to know it’s a death pit full of skeletons and not just that, but hair, nails, spears, knives, and jewelry, preserved by the frost as if it was only a few years since these souls met their demise and mysteriously found their way to the bottom of this lake.
