About the trail:

There are indeed similar routes like Brahmatal trek (pronounced as “Brahma Tal“) in the Himalayas when comparing beauty but definitely found at much higher altitude. Brahma Tal trek is an easy to go winter trek offering almost all you can think of a winter trek destination. Due to its very scenic trail, Brahmatal trek is  getting popular rapidly.

Never ending ridge lines, sprawling and delightful alpine meadows/Bugyal, high altitude lakes and majestic peak views are compelling proposition for choosing this trek. In addition to scenic beauty, fresh snow on the trail will surely keep Brahmatal winter trek in your bucket list 😎 .

To the south lies vast expanse of the valley with never ending ridges
Sprawling meadows and peaks in the backdrop

Brahmatal is medium size lake (Geo coordinates: 30.176878°E, 79.589449°N) beneath the ridge and you can only locate this while getting down from the ridge. As per legend, Lord Brahma meditated beside this lake. The other lake on this trail named Bekhal Tal is also hidden inside thick forest. . Your guide will probably point it to you, as many of you may just miss it. Both the lake are medium size considering high altitude lakes.

The peak view from the route is captivating, from east to west you can see the High Himalayan ranges. On the right toward north-east direction you can see Mrigthuni, Devtoli and Maikoti peak of Kumaon. Straight to your north Trisul massif and gigantic Nanda Ghunti are breathtaking. Bethartoli Himal and Nandaghunti. On the left westward side we can see the massive Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Mana, 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 famous Ronty saddle.

Plethora of peaks (from L to R Trishul, Mrigthuni, Devtoli, Maiktoli and other peaks of Kumaon)

The best season to explore this trail is either winter or in the springs. During winter weather normally remains clear and panoramic beauty of the surrounding is unmatched. Adequate amount of snow is another reason that this is getting popular in recent years. In Spring the trail is bountiful with Rhododendron blossoms while the last patches of snow start melting. For you who want a longer duration camping trek may combine Ali Bugyal and Bedni Bugyal trek to complete a circuit around Lohajung.

Finally, it would be an unjust, if we don’t mention about our trek base Lohajung here. This small business town at an altitude of  ~ 2320 m/7600 ft, comprises a one strip bazaar, few basic restaurants to eat and handful of lodges. However the views of Nanda Ghunti mountain and sunset on the southern valley side are just enough to start the beginning.

Altitude and distance profile graph for Brahma Tal trek:


Why Brahma Tal is most scenic winter trek?

Yes the trail does take you through dense Rhododendron forest, stretch of alpine meadow and two lakes. Though, we think only the peak views from this trail is the very reason that you will not think twice to choose. If you don’t believe, here is the aerial satellite views of Brahma Tal region and the top referred to as Khamila Top/Jatropani. In winter weather remains clearer and you get good amount of snow on the trail to enjoy 🙂

Also it will be an unjust to the Brahma Tal trek route If we don’t mention the mesmerising sunrise and sunset colours here. You will witness surely stunning dawn and dusk colour, from Lohajung as well as Brahma Tal camp. Check on your own 🙂

Snowfall updates from past

Winter 2018-19 season:

As we update this on 5th March 2019 Lohajung has leftover snow here and there, specially under shades. The trek base Lohajung received at least 3 major snowfall of 1 foot or more deposition in three occasions. First one during 22nd Jan, then one followed in mid February and last one in the end of Feb, 26th & 27th Feb.

Lohajung: Good amount of snowfall in Jan to end of Feb 2019

Usual winter season started by mid of Dec 2018, with little snow, as expected. Groups received patches of snow towards top. Around mid January weather was conducive for heavy snowfall. 3 major snowstorms hit the area, one is Jan and two in Feb. Intermittently it snowed frequently throughout February ranging from 2/3 inches to 5/6 inches, depending on altitude covered during Brahma Tal trek.

Brahmatal trail: Full with snow till end of Feb 2019

The following picture is just to assure you all that Brahma Tal trail will remain snow covered till end of March for sure. Also it is not uncommon to snow around 3000 m/10000 ft, even in March, which possibly will remain as late as mid of April 2019.

Bekhal Tal campsite: around 3 feet of snow as on 27th Feb 2019

Winter 2018-19 season

This winter, snowfall deposition was pretty low in Uttarakhand and Himachal stretching a large region as late as mid of January. Brahma Tal trail suffered this as late as January third week. with just one initial winter snowfall in first half of December. On 23rd January we had two groups (10 person’s in each) camping at Brahma Tal – one after the summit to Khamila top and another coming up from Bekhal Tal to Brahma Tal. Around 6 p.m it started to snow and in four hours it snowed around one and half feet. Below collage is taken by our staff while coming down from Brahma Tal on 24th Jan. This should remain around 15 days and another snowfall may occur in February.

January 2018 snowfall: Brahma Tal trek

On 12th February it snowed again on the trail for around 6 inch and now again it covered with snow. As this year’s snowfall is rather late, we expect another one probably in February or beginning of March.

Pickup from Kathgodam in the morning and reach Lohajung (~ 2320 m/7600 ft) which is 220 Km away. The journey may take around 10 hours with a break or two. The road is through the Kumaon region and mostly goes along wide spread valleys of Shivalik Himalaya. We cross Almora and Kausani on our way. From Gwaldam onward the road enters in the Garhwal administrative region and the road is gradually winding and goes through the conifer forest.

On the way to Lohajung

The last stretch of the journey from Deval to Lohajung has considerable height gain. Lohajung has one GMVN tourist lodge, one Tourist Rest House and few private hotels. All the major mobile networks have connectivity here. The sunset from Lohajung needs a special mention indeed. Warm colours on Nandaghunti massif is bound to make you speechless. The night accommodation in Tourist Rest House/Lodge.

Day 2

Trek to Bekhal Tal/Khopdalia campsite: 6 Km - 4/5 hours

Our trek starts today. We walk gradually up on the ridge starting just beside Lohajung and walk on a gentle gradient up encircling the mountain. On the route we see magnificent view of Didna village and Nandaghunti mountain while pausing and looking back. In contrast fascinating ridge lines forms and Mandoli village in front captivates our view.

Nanda Ghunti towering behind Didna village

The walk is mostly inside the jungle of conifer, Cedar, Oak and Fir. We gradually climb the ridge and for an hour or so. From here we walk along a ravine which is canopied by dense vegetation. Sunlight hardly enters here and probably you will get deposited snow here, if not already 🙂 After a while we take a left and reach an opening suitable for camping. This lovely camping ground is called Khopdalia (~ 2950 m/9670 ft). Total distance is 6 Km and can take 4/5  hours. We camp for the night. Bekhal tal is only 10 minutes from here. You may visit in the afternoon with your guide.

Day 3

Trek to Brahma Tal: 6 Km - 4/5 hours

Today morning after breakfast we take the main trail from campsite and get inside the canopy of forest, once more. The forest is a mix of Rhododendrons and Conifers. In spring the forest blooms in pink and red. In next 10 minutes we reach Bekhal Tal (~3000 m/9840 ft). This medium size rectangular lake has a small temple at one of the edge of the it. Normally it starts freezing in December and remains frozen till March.

Semi frozen Bekhal Tal (~ 3000 m/9840 ft)

From here we have to climb the ridge which is a sustained moderate climb for one and half  hours. We continue our hike inside the forest with occasional breaks.  After completing this climb we reach the edge of the “Bugyal”, the high altitude meadow of the Himalayas. This fringe of the forest is residing place for Himalayan Monal during winter. From here onward the view on our right, i,e, the north-east side unfolds with extended panorama. Peaks of Kumaon like Maiktoli, Devtoli  to Mrigthuni, Trishul and Nanda Ghunti, one by one. We walk along the ridge and witness one of the most enticing panorama of Garhwal.

A view from Bugyal, Trisul (L) and Mrigthuni (R) range

After about an hours of fascinating walk we leave the ridge and descent on the left slope to reach the lake Brahma Tal (~3250 m/10660 ft) surrounded by the slopes of mountain. This is a medium sized longitudinal lake , with few last remaining trees on this altitude. The lake is hard to locate from far but one needs to be close enough to get the glimpse of the dark turquoise water. We set up our tent on a suitable ground around Brahma Tal. Distance is 6 Km and may take around 4/5 hours.We camp for the night.

At Brahma Tal after a snowfall

Optional: In the afternoon climb up the ridge to witness magnificent sunset. Changing hue on Trishul, Nandaghunti and Mrigthuni will surely spellbound you. A round trip should take 2 hours from camp site.

Day 4

Trek to Khamila Top and back to Brahma Tal: 7 Km - 6/7 hours

Today we will attempt the summit of the top which we see to our north west. This is actually the crest of the ridge which we followed yesterday before descending to the camping ground around Brahma Tal. Its a moderate climb to the top of the ridge for 3 to 4 hours. You need to start by 6/6:30 am in hthe morning to reach top by 10 am. Two peaks, higher being the west one (Khamila Top, also called Jatropani at 4000 m/13120 ft) and the east one a few hundred feet lower. Initially we cross the meadow and take the ridge towards the summit. The peaks westward to Nanda Ghunti uncovers from this trail as we go more towards the top.

The peaks west of Nanda Ghunti on Badrinath valley

The last stretch to summit is boulder strewn. The view from top is truly a panorama of more than 180°.  From here you can see peaks of Badrinath valley, from west Chaukhamba, Neelkanth to Hati Ghoda to our north east Nanda Ghunti, Bethartoli Himal, Ronty, Trishul, Mrigthuni to Maiktoli, Devtoli in east.

Day 6

Drive to Rishikesh/Haridwar - 250-270 Km - 10/11 hours

Today morning we start our return journey and this time to Haridwar. We follow the same route till Tharali and turn right towards Karnaprayag following the turquoise Pindar river. From Karnaprayag we follow Alaknanda river till Rudraprayag where another tributary Mandakini meets.

December 22, 2022

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.

January 29, 2020

I did some treks with HT including Brahmatal. Their arrangements, hospitality and guidance is good. Guides are friendly. Foods are good and hygienic in the time of trekking.

January 3, 2020

Thank you HT team and everyone involved for the amazing experience. The trip was timed properly and organised really well. Food and service were great. A very friendly trek group and a lot of good memories to start the new year with. 🙂

December 28, 2019

Thank you very much, for this wonderful experience on Brahmatal trek… HT team served us very well throughout the trail, may it be food, tent or any other thing we asked for.

September 28, 2019

1. Our trek concluded yesterday. It was well organized. Mr Dev & his team did a splendid job of keeping the entire team well nourished and comfortable. They need to be complimented for their effort & concern.
2. The driver of the Tempo Traveller, Mr Harendra Singh Bisht, is a young & free spirited man who drives well. However, he may be advised to be a little patient and slow when driving.

We went to brahmatal trek with HT and needless to say it was a wonderful experience. HT team was so friendly and helpful right from the person who attends your call to the person who accompanies you to the trek. The team including Aritra, were so patient to answer our queries and give all details we needed. The local team at Lohajung headed by Mr.Dev Singh was amazing. They were so friendly people and were ready to help us at any time. You ask and they get it done. The way they guided and accompanied us throughout the trek, we are so grateful to them. Their food was simple yet awesome. We found nothing to complain in all the 5 days. Thank you HT for giving us a lifetime experience with this Brahmatal trek. Hoping to do more with HT in the future. I would recommend any trek lover to team up with HT.

I went to Brahmtal trek from 22-27 December 2018 with HT. All their arrangements were very nice. Excellent guide Pradyumn ji, great cook Sher Singh Danu and Pradeep and other staff members. Thanks to Rhik for patiently answering all my questions before the trek. I look forward to having another trek with them

I am a beginner trekker and before this trek have done 3 treks, but this trek changed my perception towards trekking, earlier i used to believe that one has to leave all the comforts while in trek but entire staff of HT changed this thought. Food provided during trek was awesome and co-operation and service of entire staff was incredible. Mr. Dev Singh and Mr. Mahipat Singh Ji are best at their field and Aritro Da was cherry on the cake. All the other trek mates were way more enthusiastic than my expectation. I had an awesome time with best people. Thank you HT and all trek mates for wonderful experience and memories.

Plan zeroed in Jan 2017 with Himalaya Trekkers to Brahmatal. We, a group of 12 opted for a customized trek with HT. Being the first time trekkers in Himalayas, we were all excited and was looking forward for safe and fun filled trek. HT was patient enough to answer all our queries, though we raised the same queries over and over again. Recommendations and instructions flowed down to our team from HT to ensure that we were all geared up for the trek. The team accommodated all of our needs, and helped us throughout the trek. Team was very humble and co-operative.
Food – Served very well
Guidance- Heard a lot of stories all along the way
Service- Would say, expectations were met
We lived like a family though it was just for a very short time. Team HT and all of us exchanged experiences and smiles. Looking forward for many more memorable journeys with HT.
Cheers to all the good memories that we had with the help of team HT ! Thank you guys 🙂

There are certain things in life that everyone wants to cherish until the last day, the experience with HT in December 2014 at Brahma Tal trek was one of its kind. To endure the biting cold of the completely ice caped regions of Garhwal was the biggest challenge. Team HT dared to push the boundaries of a winter trek when many others have nullified the scope of chalking out the trail through the heavy snow. Snow was literally knee deep but the inexhaustible enthusiasm from our Guide Dev Sing and a clued up dexterity from a knowledgeable veteran like Sapta da made the Trek a success. Last but not the least our porters, they were like soldiers in a battlefield, and without them it was unthinkable. Brahma Tal trek helped me to widen my horizon and relishing photography standing in front of the magnificent Nanda Ghunti , Bhethartoli and mighty Trishul. It is always required to push the boundaries of one’s own abilities, to achieve the unthinkable and cherish the uninhibited. Best of Luck to Team HT and looking forward to join them on another adventure very soon.
