Brahmatal Trek is considered as the ‘all in one package among a long list of trekking destinations across the country. Stretching to an expanse of 24 Km, the Brahmatal trek exposes you to some of the most magnificent Himalayan peaks such as Mt Chaukhamba, Mt Neelkanth, and Mt Hathi Ghoda among others.
The diversified beauty of this trek, from glorious mountains to snow-laden trails, high-altitude serene lakes, and lush green forests, makes Brahmatal quite mesmerizing.
If you are one of those people who love to pose for the gram, then you’d find this place even more compelling. The abundance of snow makes all the moments that you spend here Insta-worthy and you’d feel a strong urge to capture all of them.
For all snow fanatics who love to see sun rays illuminating the ivory surface, winters are the best time to do the Brahmatal Trek, more specifically the months of October, November, December, and January.
The 6-Day 5-night trek starts from Lohajung, which is about 300 km away from Dehradun. After an overnight stay followed by dinner at Lohajung, we will prepare for our journey ahead the next morning.
In this Brahmatal trek package, we make sure that the balance between fun and adventure is always maintained and hence our trek leader gives a briefing session at the start of every day. After which, we will begin our ascend towards the peak and will be rewarded by the scenic views of Kail Valley. By the time dusk starts to fall, we’d have reached our last stop for the day which is nestled calmly among the oak trees. We will set up camp at Bekaltal lake and retire to bed for the night.
The next morning, we will proceed towards Brahmatal lake which will take us almost 5 hours after which we will settle down to take a breather and set up camp at Brahamtal lake where we will have dinner while the valleys of Nainital and Almora peek at us from the backdrop.
Finally, the day when we trek towards the Brahmatal summit and get to enjoy the most stunning view of the Himalayan peaks of the Garhwal region like Mt.Trishul and Mt Nanda Ghunti.
We will set up camp at the summit and spend a night under the starry skies, surrounded by mountains before finally descending to Lohajung, concluding our trek with dinner and overnight stay at Lohajung. The next day after our morning tea, we will drive towards Rishikesh and part ways with some fond memories and a smile on our faces.
