Brahmatal Trek - Trekking in Uttarakhand


Brahmatal Trek - Winter Trekking

Overview

One of the not so popular Winter Treks in India, the trek has been named after the Brahmatal Lake, located in Uttarakhand. The trek is known for offering the right amount of snow that makes a trek exciting. Even though the trail doesn't climb to the highest of altitudes, yet it is known to offer views of some high peaks. A small lake and a few forests act as the bonus offerings in this trek.
The Himalayas let you venture into adventurous and stunning treks like the Brahmatal Trek. The amount of snow at the trek lures every trekker to take up the challenge. The Tranquilizing forests coupled with the impressive views of the Himalayas are a treat to the shutterbugs.
Brahmatal reveals a heavenly facet in winter when the snow gently falls on its slopes. The Frozen River Lake with the mighty Himalayan peaks overlooking it, creates a mesmerising ambience. The trekkers are awed by the views of the mountain summits which are over 7000 metres high. Where else would we encounter such high peaks at such close proximity, we wonder!.
Following are the attractions or say the highlights of the trek are : Astonishing view of Mt. Trishul & Mt. Nanda Ghunti
Two Frozen Glacial Lakes – Brahmatal & Bekalta
