All About It
Brahmatal Trek is considered as the ‘all in one package’ among a long list of trekking destinations across the country. Stretching to an expanse of 24 Kms, Brahmatal trek exposes you to some of the most magnificent Himalayan peaks such as Mt Chaukhamba, Mt Neelkanth, Mt Hathi Ghoda among others.The diversified beauty of this trek, from glorious mountains to snow-laden trails, high altitude serene lakes and the lush green forests, makes Brahmatal quite mesmerising. If you are one of those people who love to pose for the gram, then you’d find this place even more compelling. The abundance of snow makes all your moments that you spend here Insta-worthy and you’d feel a strong urge to capture all of them.For all snow fanatics who love to see sun rays illuminating the ivory surface, winters are definitely the best time to do the Brahmatal Trek, more specifically the months of October, November, December, and January.The 6 Day 5 night trek starts from Lohajung, which is about 300 Kms away from Dehradun. After an overnight stay followed by dinner at Lohajung, we will prepare for our journey ahead the next morning.In this Brahmatal trek package, we make sure that the balance between fun and adventure is always maintained and hence our trek leader gives a briefing session at the start of every day. After which, we will begin our ascend towards the peak and will be rewarded by the scenic views of Kail Valley. By the time dusk starts to fall, we’d have reached our last stop for the day which is nestled calmly among the oak trees. We will set up camp at Bekaltal lake and retire to bed for the night.The next morning, we will proceed towards Brahmatal lake which will take us almost 5 hours after which we will settle down to take a breather and set up camp at the Brahamtal lake where we will have dinner while the valleys of Nainital and Almora peek at us from the backdrop. Finally, the day when we trek towards the Brahmatal summit and get to enjoy the most stunning view of the Himalayan peaks of the Garhwal region like Mt.Trishul and Mt Nanda Ghunti. We will set up camp at the summit and spend a night under the starry skies, surrounded by mountains before finally descending to Lohajung, concluding our trek with dinner and overnight stay at Lohajung. The next day after our morning tea, we will drive towards Rishikesh and part ways with some fond memories and a smile on our faces.Solo travelers, first-timers, as well as experienced trekkers, prefer and love Brahmatal for the sheer content it instills in your heart and this is why you should do the Brahmatal trek and why it remains one of the best winter treks to do in India.

Every brand starts off with a dream and as you walk the path of turning your vision into a reality, overcoming every hurdle and road block the journey has to offer you, you grow in irrevocable ways.
Back when we first started JustWravel in 2015, we knew that no matter how high we might fly, we will never forget our roots and today, even after becoming a family of more than 25k people, our core values remain the same and we will make sure they will stay the same for years to come.
The reason behind starting this venture was simple, to give people a chance to explore all the wonders this beautiful country has to offer and that meant unraveling hidden nooks and corners that are not as mainstream as other travel destinations. To make sure that passionate adventurers of our country could have a reliable platform that provided them the best traveling experience, be it fixed departure group tours, road trips to Ladakh, or the best treks in India.
Spiti trip has been amazing. All the accommodations and services provided by JustWravel were really great and comfortable. Will definitely pick JustWravel for my future expeditions.

Great Experience! We took Justwravel's road trip package to Spiti Valley. The package is well organized covering main sightseeings and places to visit. All the accommodations and travel arrangements were comfy and included most of the promised amenities. Special thanks to Piyush Rawat, our coordinator, he managed and acted his best in all the situations. His jolliness added more fun to the trip. Although many destinations were covered in a short period of time, the trip was relaxing. Thanks for such memorable moments of our lives.

Differs from person to person. If you think that it would help you maintaining balance while trekking then do bring the pole. Some people think that trekking pole disturbs the walking rhythm. So it’s upto you.
