About Brahmatal Trek

The trek to Brahmatal, a lake where Lord Brahma is said to have meditated according to mythology, is one of the few treks that can be done during the winter months when most trekking routes are closed. Lohajung, the Brahamatal trek’s base camp, is a small town with a lot of mythological significance. It’s important to connect with the locals and learn about the town’s history. These stories provide insight into the local culture and values. The Brahmatal trek, which is on the opposite side of the popular Roopkund, is a great winter choice. One of the many reasons to do this trek is to see the spectacular Himalayan range from the trail.
