Lake Roopkund skeletons in the Himalayas
In the world there are many mysterious places, some of them can be called wonders of nature, the other wonders of architecture, and there are those that besides the mystic can not be named. And there are corners of the world, which at first glance seem mysterious, but then upon further study it appears that there is a mystic at anything.
One of these, one might even say creepy places in India this lake Roopkund. It is also called — Lake skeletons. It is located in the state of Uttarakhand in India, just at the foot of the peaks and Nandghungti trisula that in the Himalayas. Lake was first discovered in nineteen forty-second year of the officers hunting reserve. The painting, which he happened to see it plunged into shock. After that came before his eyes, even in a terrible dream could not dream.
The fact is that when the ice melts, then immediately get hundreds of human skeletons visible. Naturally, the man told the authorities about what they saw, and skeletons to the lake was immediately sent a team of researchers. At the initial examination and study of the skeletons of the first thing we thought it was a bone of Japanese soldiers. This news excited the UK and the British right, during the Second World War, sent its scientists to the lake. The aim of the expedition was to determine who owned the skeletons and their nature.
However, the results are more in-depth analysis Roopkund remains were not in favor of the original version. After reviewing the nature of the skeletons, the researchers came to the conclusion that they could not belong to the Japanese soldiers, since their age was much older than the intended. Bones belong Zorovaru Singh of Kashmir, as well as his army, which was supposed to have got lost and died in the Himalayas, returning from Tibet in 1841 battles. But there was an inaccuracy. Since radiocarbon tests, made in the sixties, we proved the fallacy of the previous version.
These studies showed that the skeletons for about 800-850 years. This gave impetus to the further extension of a number of versions, most of which have not been confirmed. And only one of them, according to scientists, has a right to exist. The fact that all of the skulls have cracks, which did not immediately drew attention, however, these cracks make it possible to assume that people died because of a very large city, from which there was no possibility of escape.
