All those extra kgs on my back, all the cramped up cold nights in my sleeping bag, the multiple layers of clothes to keep me warm, all the times when I had to wash and brush with freezing cold skin numbing water and all the times when the thought of giving up had reached it's peak, the only thing that pumped my adrenaline was the beauty of this place. Starting the summit attempt from Bhagwabasa at 2.30am beneath a sky full of stars, this night was the coldest I had ever witnessed. The pain, frustration and the agony vanished as soon as we reached Roopkund. There's indeed a reason why its called the 'mysterious lake.'
