Brahmatal Trek – Best Winter Treks in Himalayas
Trek to Brahmatal, a lake where Lord Brahma is said to have meditated as per mythology is one of the few treks which are possible in the months of winter when most of the trekking routes are closed. Lohajung, which is the base camp of the Brahamatal trek is a small town of great mythological importance. One must interact with the locals here and hear the great stories about the town. One gets a glimpse of the local culture and beliefs through these stories. Brahmatal trek is a great winter option & is on the opposite side of the famous Roopkund.
Owing to gradually ascending rolling slopes, the Brahmatal Trek route is deemed fit for beginners and less experienced trekkers. A major part of the trek continues under forest cover, diminishing the chances of altitude sickness. All the same, the trek will not deprive one of an out and out thrilling winter experience with the sweet mellow of falling snow, a fascinating trail caught in an absolute white out, the depthless silence inside the grove of rhododendrons and oaks, and iced over lake water faces.
The Brahmatal trek takes one through beautiful valleys, hushed hamlets, streams, and conifers and oak forests. In winter, the region is covered in sheath of snow and offered unparallel Himalayan view. Brahmatal Trek in Uttarakhand under crisp blue skies, surrounded by the snow-capped mountains is absolutely spectacular.
