2020 - Best Winter Treks in India

Brahmatal Trek, Uttrakhand

Brahmatal Trek
Brahmatal Trek

Brahmatal trek ranks as one of the most visited treks of India & is quite famous because of snow-covered alleys. For an enthusiastic trekker, nothing can serve better than Brahmatal trek this winter. Amidst the snow, high altitude alpine lake is tucked in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas. But despite this scenic landscape this trek is comparatively moderate & an easy go.

What makes Brahmatal different from other treks is that on this trek, a traveller has high chances of seeing huge peaks from extremely close quarters. The best thing about this trek is you get the chance to camp by the side of two distinct lakes-Bekal Tal and Brahmatal. 

The Brahmatal trail has deep and shadowy forests of oaks and rhododendrons to snow-covered meadows, lakeside camping at Bekaltal, the alpine Brahmatal lake proximity, and a snow-covered vision! The trek surmounts a closer look to peaks like Mt. Nanda Ghunti and Mt. Trishul.

Your way to Brahmatal!

If you’re aiming to see the best of Brahmatal Trek, then winter season is your go-call! However, the trek is of fairly moderate grade, but due to snow, it becomes difficult at times.

Despite it, it is worth doing. Snow-capped mountain view is breathtaking. Chilling winds give you the shiver that goes down the spine and is something which you can only experience here – thanks to the unpredictable behaviour of the mother nature.

Experiences you will take from here is eternal, tell’ ya!

Discover the joy of life with Devadars Brahmatal trek.

When the soul meets the serenity of nature, that’s when the captivated aspiration of life ignites like a sun shining high.

So, let’s fall in the lap of nature with Devadars Brahmatal trek. The major chunk of the trek is trailed in forests, hence chances of altitude sickness are limited.

Brahmatal Trek Itinerary

Day 1Kathgodam to Lohajung (drive 240 km)

On the very first day, Devadars voyagers will board on vehicles for the long uphill drive from Kathgodam to Lohajung, which will cover approximately 245 km, thus, in turn, land us at our kickstarting location, from where actual trekking will start. This drive for some might feel the longest, but it’s worth!

Picturesque mountain view, Garhwal mountains and the chanting rivers accompany us up to the mountain, and it’s rewarding enough, ain’t it?

In the time between, there is little escape where you can spend some time in the small flea markets and local spots of the area or just maybe just enjoy the beautiful sunset view.

Expected drive time: 11-12 hours Estimate Altitude: 7,662 ft Water sources: Carry at least 2-litre water bottle. Refill service is available at the starting point/in-between stops.

Overnight stay will be in the Hotel.

Day 2Lohajung to Bekaltal (8km trek)

Coming to our second-day destination Bekaltal. Bekaltal is a very popular and beautiful lake in the Garhwal region but is usually frozen in January & February. This lake is fully surrounded by green & dark oak tree forests and is an ultimate camping spot. Overnight stay for the second day is maintained in tents by Devadars.

Expected Trek time: 4-5 hours Estimate Altitude: 9,690 ft Water sources: No water points, Make sure you carry 2 litres of water from the camp before hitting off.

Overnight stay will be in camps.

Day 3Bekaltal to Brahmatal ( 6km trek)

On the third day of our trek, here hold your breath, to encounter the most scenic day from the entire trek. The main spotlight of the Brahmatal trek is the high altitude ranges and entirely frozen Brahmatal lake. One of the major astonishing factor associated with this place is that this is believed to be the meditation point of Lord Brahma (a Hindu deity).

Heads Up: Brahmatal lake is situated at an altitude of 3,400 m. The trek is fairly easy with a gradual descent.

Camps for an overnight stay will be set up by Devadards Voyagers. Now is the time to intake all that you have seen the entire day in your body, mind & soul, to rest a bit, to sit by the side of Brahmatal lake a bit, to rest and relax your muscle for the upcoming day.

Expected Trek time: 6-7 hours Estimate Altitude: 10,450 ft Water sources: No water points, Make sure you carry 2 litres of water from the camp before hitting off.

Overnight stay will be in camps.

Day 4Brahmatal to Tilbudi (6km trek)

The fourth day of Brahmatal trek is comparatively easier companies by the breathtaking view. On this day Devadars voyagers will march towards Tilbudi from Brahmatal. The entire route of the fourth day as mentioned above has a moderate ascent to the ridge followed by a flat walk and then a steep descent passing by the Rhododendron and oak forest.

On this day of trekking, 4 to 6 hours is occupied in trekking solely to cover the 6km route. Once we attain the top-notch height of this day, nature is readily looking at us with open arms. From this point, we can capture the entire Himalayan range and keep it in a nutshell of our brain like a photographic memory imprinted forever. Peaks of a single spot like Haukhambha, Mandi, Mana, Nilgiri, Neelkanth, Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Maitoli can be adored from this point. From here onwards, you can have your own time and capture the moments and keep’em alive in your photographic slate.

Overnight stay will be in camps.

Day 5Tilbudi to Wan ( 8km trek)

On the fifth day, Devadar Voyagers begin the descent to Wan right after a delicious breakfast. The trail goes through thick oak and rhododendron forests once again. The downside trek is going to be gradual and steep with mixed descent trails. From this point of downside arrow, you can easily catch amazing views of Himalayan range on your right. Later on the same trail, the compact rural household will steal the glare, making it a moment of lifetime joy.

This will be the perfect day for loose walks or photography fellas!

Expected Trek time: 7-8 hours Estimate Altitude: 11,250 ft. to 7,650 ft Water sources: yes, you can find a water spot on the way to refill your water bottles.

Day 6Wan to Kathgodam (245km drive)

This is the ultimate time after sharing a brief moment of exhilaration, the time to bid adieu. Take a deep breath and say goodbye to the beautiful Himalayan range by saying I will be back here soon.
