Here's a golden opportunity for you to tick off a fantastic Himalayan winter trek!
Brahmatal is a snow picturesque trek in the lap of the Himalayas of Uttarakhand state. It's one of the rare Himalayan peaks available for trekking winter months that takes you to the land of snow and the snow-covered mountains. It's a great winter trek for the nature lovers and adventure seekers.
The uneven terrain, beautiful landscapes, sprawling forests and a mesmerizing view of the Himalayas are attractions while reaching 12,200 feet above Sea level covering around 22 Km overall. The stunning view of frozen lake of Brahmatal on the backdrop of majestic snow-capped Himalayan peaks is added attraction that one cannot miss.
