Trip Overview

Brahma Tal trek is a moderate winter trek gaining popularity rapidly in the last couple of years.

Never ending ridge lines, sprawling Bugyal, High altitude lakes, majestic peak views, and fresh snow on the trail are a compelling proposition for the Brahma Tal winter trek. Also, it will be unjust to the Brahma Tal trek route if we don’t mention the mesmerizing sunrise and sunset colors here. You will witness surely stunning dawn and dusk color, from Lohajung as well as Brahma Tal camp. The lake is a hidden and secluded one amidst the ridge, whereas per legend, Lord Brahma meditated. 

The peak view from the route is captivating; from east to west you can see the High Himalayan ranges. On the right eastward direction we can see Mrigthuni, Trishul, and straight north the Bethartoli Himal and Nandaghunti. On the left westward side we can see the massive Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Kamet, Hathi and Ghoda peaks. This is just the opposite ridge of the famous Roopkund trek and offers a Birds-eye view of the route including Ali Bugyal, Bedni Bugyal, Roopkund and Junargali including far poised the famous Ronty saddle.
