Brahmtal is a classic winter trek. The summit unveils a heavenly facet when the snow gently falls on its slopes; most of the trek is on the snow, which makes it terribly exciting. Apart from the uneven terrain, the trek is filled with beautiful landscapes, sprawling forests and stretched across the sky are the big mountains of Gharwal and everywhere around you are the white undulating snow fields. Once you cross the shadows of the trees, the full grandeur of the Himalayas hit you. Never ending ridge lines, sprawling Bugiyals, High altitude lakes, snow on the trail and majestic peak views make it a compelling proposition for a winter trek. Brahma Tal is a hidden and secluded lake amidst the ridge, where Lord Brahma meditated according to the mythology. The frozen blue lake with the mighty himalayan peaks overlooking it, creates a mesmerizing and an unmatched experience.

- Day 1 From Kathgodam to Lohajung
The best way to reach the base camp – Lohajung – is from Kathgodam, which is the last railway station. Kathgodam is famous for its rail approach to the popular hill station, Nainital (approx 25 km from Kathgodam). It is also referred to as the twin city of Haldwani (9 km from Kathgodam). The last ATM en route is at a tiny town called Debal. Although Lohajung has a small medical shop, it is better to purchase medicines at Gwaldam and Debal. From Debal, it is an hour’s journey to Lohajung. Once you reach Lohajung, you can see the beautiful Nanda Ghunti peak and if you are lucky enough to reach before sunset, the colour of Nanda Ghunti will amaze you. Lohajung, as the locals say, is the place where Goddess Parvati had a war (jung) with the demon, Lohasur. Hence, the name, which translates to ‘war with Lohasur.’ It is a centre point of close to 12-15 nearby villages.

It is considered as a moderate trek. Only few treks are open in winters and Brahmatal is one of them. Anyone who is adventurous and fit can easily do this trek.
It is considered as a winter trek, so, January and February is the best time to do this trek.
The base camp is very well connected with outer world. You might also get network on the top of the summit.
The most amazing part is the Mt. Trisul and Nanda Ghunti peaks from such a close proximity. The 360 degree view from the summit is mesmerizing. This winter snow trek is one of its kind. Go and look for yourself.
