About the Departure:
The depth of the particular lake is about two meters. There are many alleged stories present in the history of Skeleton Lake. The lake was first found by a British forest guard in 1942. It was also said that the skeletons were of Japanese soldiers who died while crossing that route during World War II. The skeletons are visible in the clear water of the shallow lake during a one-month period, when the ice melts. Along with the skeletons, objects like wooden artifacts, iron spearheads, leather slippers, rings etc. were also found. When a team from National Geographic magazine retrieved about 30 skeletons, flesh was still attached to some of the skeletons. One study identified the skeletons as those of Indians, and not of Japanese. Later studies placed the time of mass death around the 9th century AD (1200 years old).
