Himalayas lets you venture into a few treks in winter that are as adventurous and stunning like Brahmatal. The amount of snow at the trek teases every trekker to take up the challenge. Forests coupled with impressive views of the Himalayas is a treat to the shutterbugs.

Brahmatal reveals a heavenly facet in winter when the snow gently falls on it slopes. The frozen lake with the mighty Himalayan peaks overlooking it, creates a mesmerising ambience. 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!

Day 3: Trek from Bekaltal to Brahmatal

The trail starts out of the campsite and begins to climb steeply into the Oak and Rhododendron forest. It opens up to a beautiful meadow. From here, it is a very gradual descent to Brahmatal. All through the days trek you will see the Almora, Nainital side of the valley. The big mountains in the vicinity are Trishul, Nanda Ghunti and rest are just there but yet to come into sight. During winter the entire Brahmatal winter Trek trail is covered in the snow and that makes Brahmatal Trek in December most sought after snow trek in Himalayas.

Today is the most visually fascinating day of the entire trek. It starts with a 40 minute climb through the mixed forests. Trekkers head towards Brahmatal Top.
