The Brahmatal trek, which is dedicated to Lord Brahma, is another gem of the Himalayas that remains unexplored by hikers from all over the world. It is exquisitely situated in the Himalayas and completely covered in snow. 


The oak and rhododendron woodland, which dates back many centuries, is visible from the route. You may view numerous Roopkund Trek spots by strolling across the meadows next to Brahamatal Ridge. On a clear day, the distant Garhwal Mountains will completely melt your heart.


The location is stunning. A shrine is located next to the lake, which is in a crater, and a lone tree can be seen on the opposite bank. The lake’s waters are also crystal clear. You can see Mt. Trishul and Mt. Nandaghunti, two of our country’s most stunning mountains, just beyond the lake’s rim.
