Few minutes later, Rajesh declared Junargali would be attempted soon. Junargali ridge rises 500 ft above Roopkund and is like a knife edge with steep stretching slopes on either side but also with the most majestic views of Trishul, Nandaghunti, Chanyakot and many more mighty high giants rising right in front of you.
Junargali Pass is about 400 meters away from Roopkund and it normally take 30 minutes to reach there. The trail from Roopkund to Junargali Pass was completely covered with the snow. Other side of the pass is not visible from Roopkund, so you have to climb to Junargali to see what is there on the other side of the pass.

They called it the Junargali Top. Despite all our research before the trek, we never came across any place with that name. He assured it was the crown jewel of this trail cause Junargali Top had the best view in town. Standing on the peak of the Mountain you come face to face with Mt. Trishul (23,000 ft) and few other peaks of the range.
Final batch from RoopKund Trek to visit the Junargali ridge in 2016Date: Oct 27,2016Time: 1:45PM
After getting intrigued by the Mystery Roopkund Lake do try to visit Junargali if you are in good shape, else don’t. Junargali is just 20 minutes climb away from Roopkund. The climb is steep but doable. The massive Trishul peak will just be a valley away from you when you summit Junargali at almost 5000mts.
People who came to know that we did Junargali Top as well congratulated us and that feeling was awesome as well. My other friends in the group, Dushyant, Triveni and Megha were also happy for me and Cambria. We carefully descended back till Bedini Bugyal camp the same day with the handful of memories that will never fade away.
