Hey all, Welcome to Geeksforjobs
Do you know about a lake full of skeletons? Do you know whose skeletons they are? And what century is it? If not, learn something interesting about Skeleton Lake.
Talking about secrets, India is not an alternative country. We have learned many and many mysterious places to go from a precious gate to Glacier Lake with skeletal bones with a full valuable gold and platinum.
The lake was named Ropkund Lake, and was located at an altitude of 16500 feet (5.03 km) in the Himalayas. The Himalaya is a peak known for pilgrimage and more mythological stories related to the Hindu god Lord Shiva.
The name Ropkund refers to a small reservoir.
Lord Shiva :
It is said that Lord Shiva and Parvati are visiting Kailash. Lord Parvati killed many demons, and then she wanted to take a bath.
But they did not see any river or any kind of water bodies for bathing. Lord Shiva excavated the glacier with his trident and paved the way for converting the glacier into water bodies. And then Parvati bathes on the crystal clear water that comes from the glaciers.
In the year 1942, a hardworking guard made his way through the valleys, and he reached the shore of the lake, for example he filled the lake and was shocked to see a lot of skeletons on the lake and the coasts.
Between June and mid-October, glaciers in the Himalayas not only begin to appear, but also reveal skeletons that have been inside the glaciers for years and years.
Anthropologists, scientists, historians and local people had nothing to tell about these being.
At first, they thought that the bodies were Japanese people who invaded the Himalayas for trekking during the period of World War II.
He was injured and died due to some natural disasters. Due to the huge melting point in the Himalayas, people freeze as glaciers.
India was completely under British control during this period. They send some of their soldiers to do some research on the Himalayas about the skeletons.
The research team takes samples from 300 bodies. Some of them are with flesh and some of them have only skeletons.
Some interesting things came out in the results. The skeletons found on the lake were not of a group of people.
Not one but two:
The skeletons in the lake have skeletons of two different types of people.
A group of people have thin and small bones. Whereas the second group of people have relatively longer bones than the previous one.
And all the skeletons present in the valley belong to the 9th century. The DNA samples collected from these bodies have unique DNA that is not found anywhere in the world. Some are from Maharashtra.
Rakund is far from human settlements, so this may be the person who came to him for trekking, and he is accompanied by some local guides for trekking.
And there can be huge ice balls and they are completely rolled up and kept inside for years and years.
And it is also believed that in the medieval period King Jaiswal and his pregnant wife went on a pilgrimage to the Himalayas with their soldiers and dancers. He refused to walk barefoot.
This example enraged Nandi and sent a wild storm with snow and destroyed all the soldiers, king, queen and child. Which is delivered by reaching that place.
The gold used by the queen was found on some skeletons. And there is also a song that explains the same situation.
Some groups of people believe that the skeletons belong to those who went to find the magical mushroom.
Magical mushrooms are sometimes grown in the region. It has some good medicinal properties.
People can be affected by natural disasters and turn to skeletons to find it.
The study published in 2019 states that people are not just from India. But also from regions like Southeast Asia and Greece. He also said that people do not die in a single catastrophic event. This can sometimes be caused by a series of disasters.
Like the skeletons of all those mysterious places, the lake has many theories and there is no such evidence to prove that event.
