Why Brahmatal Trek?

Brahmatal Trek takes you to the lake where Lord Brahma meditated as per the folklores. Brahmatal Trek gives you an opportunity to venture into the snow-covered slopes of the Himalayas and trekking in snow challenges every trekker who goes for a winter trek in the Himalayas. Brahmatal Trek is a great winter trek option that lies on the other side of the famous Roopkund Trek.

Summary :

Brahmatal is a classic winter trek, however, can also be done in the summers, the trek leads you to a beautiful lake at over 12,200 Feet, and eventually, we summit the peak nearby called Brahmatal Peak, the trek is perfect in winters as the lake freezes and the background is lined by seven thousand of the mighty Himalayan Range. The trek is made even interesting as the route of going and coming back is different and hence offering new views every day.
