In the year 1942, the first forest employee found human remains in Rupkund area. But the research did not gain momentum. About 4/5 years ago, a research was done by National Geography. A community of 500 to 600 people were buried in a hailstorm while going on a pilgrimage. His remains were discovered and researched. Pilgrims from Maharashtra were found buried in it.
