Overview

According to Hindu mythology, the lake near Brahmatal Trek is the holy place where Lord Brahma pondered; as a result, the lake was given the name Brahma Tal. Himachal Pradesh is home to some of the most breathtaking hikes in the world. One of the most endearing aspects of this winter trekking is the fact that it is home to a number of different kinds of birds. To put it simply, the water in this lake is crystal clear, holy, and invigorating. Maintaining a steady course down the riverbank for a considerable amount of time will bring you to Brahmatal, which is an equally delightful journey to get to the lake. A trek that should not be missed on the list of the best winter treks in India is the Brahmatal trek, which is located in Uttarakhand. The best time to go on the Brahmatal Trek is between the middle of November and the middle of March; however, if you want to see snow, you should schedule your trip for the middle of December. You are going to have an experience that you will never forget, and the sight of the White Mountains against the clear blue sky is going to blow your mind.

Trek Plan

From Rishikesh to Lohajung

There is a significant religious belief that Lohajung is a location where the goddess Parvati fought a battle against the demon Lohasur. As a result, the location is known as Lohajung, which literally translates to “War with Lohasur.” Beginning the journey from Rishikesh to Lohajung will take 10-12 hours. As you make your way through the centre of your journey, you will have the opportunity to take in a number of different mountain panoramas. Despite the fact that the journey can be a bit chaotic, you shouldn’t be concerned since mountains won’t cause you to feel exhausted. Therefore, after you have arrived to Lohajung, you will be able to see the breathtaking Nanda Ghunti mountain. In the vicinity of Lohajung, there are twelve to fifteen more settlements. You may purchase the essential items for winter clothing from the local merchants in the Village, such as hats, shoes, coats, and other items, in the event that you have neglected to bring in the basics for winter clothing. In some areas in Lohajung, you will have access to mobile network service.

 

From Lohajung to Bekaltal

The Lohajung central market serves as the starting point for the pilgrimage. During the trek, you will first traverse the top part of Lohajung, and then go via the woodland route that has a few cottages. Mandoli is the name of the village that will be reached after a just short trek. As you ascend, you will eventually arrive at the Kali valley, which is the point where two rivers, the Kali and the Pindari, meet. Later on in the journey, you will come across rhododendron trees, which are in bloom from February to March and provide a touch of beauty to the path. To assist you in crossing the creek, there is a bridge that is ten metres long and is called as Link-Gaad. It is located around 8,500 feet away. Following a two-hour journey, you will arrive at Begum, where you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of Bagdi Bugyal and Navali Bugyal. You are able to take a break and relax there. After a single hour of walking, you will arrive at the last stream, which is called Gujarani. From there, it will only take you seventy-five minutes of walking to reach Bekaltal. We may set up camp next to the neighbouring lake known as Khopdaliya, which is located close to the stunning lake known as Bekaltal, which is located in the midst of oak woodlands.

From Bekaltal to Brahmatal

As you make your way through the forest today, you will come across oak and rhododendron trees. A hard ascent into the Rhododendron and Oak woodland is the beginning of the trek, which begins at the campground and continues away from there. After an hour of climbing, the route opens up to the meadows of Telandi, which gets you to the highest point of the day, which is 11,500 feet. You will be able to view the Nainital and Almora side of the valley after you have completed the whole day of walking. Some of the larger mountains in the region, such as Nanda Ghunti and Trishul, are visible to visitors. Brahmatal’s campground is located at an elevation of 10,351 feet, and it is 500 metres away from the lake.

From Brahmatal to Summit and back

The journey starts with a 40 minute ascent through oak and rhododendron woods that are mingled together, leading to wide meadows and the beginning of the steep ascent to the summit. You will be able to view the mountains Mana, Neelkanth, Nanda Ghunti, Chaukhambha, Nilgiri, Mandir, Trishul, and Maitoli, as well as high mountains that extend all the way to the Panchachuli range, after you arrived at the peak. An experience that will be mesmerising is going to be trekking towards the peak. Nevertheless, it will be a long trek, but you shouldn’t be concerned about it since, at every step, you will witness something that you will enjoy in your surroundings.

From Brahmatal to Lohajung

 

The descent from Brahamatal to Lohajung takes around 7-8 hours to complete. After that, you make your way back by way of the path that leads to Khabekhal, and then you go straight down to Lohajung. After that, you make your way through Daldum, which is a beautiful place that is encircled by forests. After embarking on a journey that lasts twenty to thirty minutes, you will arrive in Malling, which is located outside of the woodland region. In addition, from this vantage point, you will be able to glimpse a few settlements.After travelling for an hour, you will arrive to Burali, which is a tiny village consisting of a few separate dwellings. Once again, you will discover a stone path that leads in the direction of Lohajung from now on.

From Lohajung to Rishikesh

After breakfast we will make our way to Rishikesh. The jouney will take 10-12 hours to reach Rishikesh. Today is the last day of your trek, enjoy the route and make beautiful memories.
