Overview

Brahmatal is a classic winter trek however can also be done in the summers, the trek leads you to a beautiful lake at over 10,000 Feet and eventually we summit the peak nearby called Brahmatal Peak. The frozen lake with the mighty Himalayan peaks overlooking it, creates a mesmerising ambience. The amount of snow at the trek teases every trekker to take up the challenge. Forest coupled with impressive view of the Himalayas is a treat to the shutterbugs. The trekkers are awed by the views of summits over 7000 metres. Where else would we encounter such high peaks at such close proximity, we wonder.
