Brahmatal Trek

Our customised trek, Brahmatal and Bedni Ali Bugyal in eight days, was perfect. We especially enjoyed the combination of the mountains and the local culture. Trek was physically challenging enough, but not too heavy. Dev and his excellent team made us feel safe and the trek was well balanced and planned in advance. We also enjoyed the informative discussions during the trek and off course the good food. Special thanks to the one staff member who walked eight hours to pick a bottle of curd to cure my stomach. Such a hospitality is unforgettable.
We can recommend HT for everyone who really wants to have a good hike.
