There are very few winter treks in the Himalayas that are as adventurous and stunning as Brahmatal. Not all treks can be done in the winter months of December to March due to the presence of excessive snow. The amount of snow at the Brahmatal trek teases every trekker to take up the challenge. Virgin forests, unspoiled Lakes with impressive views of the Himalayas, Brahmatal Trek makes for one of the best winter treks in the Himalayas.
The frozen lake with the mighty Himalayan peaks overlooking it, is a treat to the shutterbugs. The trekkers are awed by the views of the several Himalayan Peaks of 7000 metres height. Nowhere else in our country you’ll see these Himalayan Peaks from such close quarters. Just to witness this magic, one must do Brahmatal trek between December and March.
