Brahmatal Trek summit reveals the heavenly side as snow gently falls on its slopes; most of the brahmatal journey is on snow, which makes it exciting. In addition to the uneven terrain, the hike is full of beautiful scenery, sprawling forests, the magnificent Garhwal Mountains stretching over a turquoise sky and all around you are white undulating Snowfields. As you cross the shadows of the trees, the perfect splendor of the Himalayas struck you. Endless ridges, sprawling Bugiyals, high lakes, snow on the trail and majestic peak views make it a compelling proposition for a winter trip. Brahmatal is a hidden and secluded lake in the middle of a ridge where Lord Brahma meditated according to mythology. A frozen blue lake with spectacular snow-capped Himalayan peaks overlooking it creates an enchanting and unparalleled experience.
The most spectacular part of the hike is the view of Mt. Trisul and Nanda Ghunti culminate in such intimacy. The 360 degree view from the top is enchanting. This winter snow trip is one of a kind.
The best time to scale the Brahmatal Trek is during the winter months of January and February. This is because during the winters we can think of heavy snowfall. You get the privilege of walking on a snow cover. The amount of snow attracts hikers from all over to meet the challenge. The weather conditions in the Himalayas are quite unpredictable. Brahmatal hiking is a winter trip, so the weather is usually sunny during the day, while at night it is usually very cold.
