Brahmatal Trek in Chamoli
Brahmatal Lake Trek is an easy to moderate trek for those who want to experience an adventure of high-altitude mountain hiking, camping, and relative easier challenges. This 05 Nights & 06 Days Trek in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand in Garhwal Himalayas is popular for several reasons, including 360-degree views of several Himalayan peaks and a bird’s eye view of everything around you from the highest point of the trek.
Brahmatal Trekking Tour takes you to Lake Brahmatal, which is not a large lake in and of itself, but standing beside it gives you the feeling of leaving the world behind and immersing yourself in the beauty that stands before you. Photographers should look forward to this trip in particular because you will be able to capture such incredible images and videos that they will become part of your personal collection.
The trail takes you through rhododendron and oak forests, through lush wide meadows, across gurgling streams, and even to a campsite 500 metres from the lake. What distinguishes this trek from the other most popular treks in Uttarakhand are the breathtaking views of several snow-capped peaks in the Garhwal and Kumaon Himalayas, including Mt. Trishul, Mt. Nanda Ghunti, Mt. Mana, Mt. Neelkanth, and Mt. Chaukhamba. You can even see the ridge connecting Mt. Trishul and Mt. Nanda Ghunti.
The highest point at which you will be during the trek is 12,100 feet. Another advantage of taking this trek is that you won’t have to worry about altitude sickness because much of the trekking is done at sea level. Because the landscape changes during the summers and winters, the best time to take the Brahmatal Lake Trek depends largely on the type of experience you seek.
When the entire stretch of the trekking trail is covered in snow from mid-November to March, it becomes one of the most popular winter treks in Uttarakhand. This is the best time to go on this trek if you want to get some snow trekking experience. The richness and colour of the landscape steal your heart during the summer, from April to May. This is the ideal time to go on this hike if you want to see the contrast of colours without having to deal with the cold weather.
