Trekking in Uttarakhand is one of the most preferred destinations for wanderlusts because of the numerous mountain peaks that it carries within itself.

Right from Rishikesh to Haridwar and Kedarnath to Badrinath, this place brings in a lot of religious people together. It also contains one of the very few religious treks in the country which is the Brahmatal trek, a Himalayan trek.


A Classic Winter Trek - Brahmatal Trek


Brahmatal is a classic winter trek. The summit unveils a heavenly facet when the snow gently falls on its slopes; most of the brahmatal trek is on the snow, which makes it exciting. Apart from the uneven terrain, the trek is filled with beautiful landscapes, sprawling forests, mighty Garhwal mountains stretch across the turquoise skies and everywhere around you will be the white undulating snowfields. Once you cross the shadows of the trees, the full grandeur of the Himalayas hit you. Never-ending ridgelines, sprawling Bugiyals, High altitude lakes, snow on the trail and majestic peak views make it a compelling proposition for a winter trek. Brahmatal is a hidden and secluded lake amidst the ridge, where Lord Brahma meditated according to the mythology. The frozen blue lake with the mighty snow-capped Himalayan peaks overlooking it creates a mesmerizing and an unmatched experience.

The most amazing part of the trek is the view of Mt. Trisul and Nanda Ghunti peaks from such proximity.  The 360-degree view from the summit is mesmerizing. This winter snow trek is one of its kind.


The best time to scale the Brahmatal Trek is in the winter months of January and February. This is because, during winters, we can envisage heavy snowfall. You will get the privilege of walking on a blanket of snow. The quantity of snow tempts the trekkers from all over to take up the challenge. Weather condition in the Himalayas is quite unpredictable. Brahmatal trek, being a winter trek, the weather is mostly sunny during the daytime while it tends to get very cold during the night.


Brahmatal trek Temperature


The temperature during the daytime is around 3 to 10 degrees centigrade. The nights are freezing with temperatures falling to -5 degrees centigrade. Brahmatal Trek is not preferable during the monsoon months from July and August because of steep slopes and slippery terrain which makes it very difficult to ascend with the rain pouring downwards. However, during March and April, you will be elated to see the diverse and vivid hues of rhododendrons blooming across the trail. You can witness the red, white and pink rhododendron which will be a treat to the eyes.

Brahmatal trek height or elevation is encircled around 12,600 feet. It incorporates a total distance of approximately 24 kilometers and demands around 6 days to comfortably complete the trek.


Brahmatal Trek difficulty


The difficulty level is considered to be easy to moderate. It is a perfect mix of easy and challenging trails. This trek is very famous when it comes to beginners. If you want to experience a winter Himalayan trek for the first time, Brahmatal trek acts as your perfect go-to option. It is naturally crafted in such a way that a beginner in the Himalayas would never lose their way.
