Brahmatal Trek Overview brahmatal trek height

Brahmatal Trek is the truth that the Dev Bhumi of Uttarakhand is said to be the reason that Gods have done severe penance here, so wherever you go in Uttarakhand, you will be urged to do this pious trek. brahmatal trek package brahmatal trek distancebrahmatal trek cost

The name Brahmatal owes its origin to Lord Brahma, the Creator who meditated here. Lohajung, the base camp for the Brahmatal trek prides itself on the fact that Goddess Parvati had a fight with Lohasur and killed him at this place.

The name Lohajung translates to fight (Jung) with demon Lohasu.

Located in the Chamoli district of the Garhwal Himalayan region in Uttarakhand, the Brahmatal Trek summit offers an excellent panoramic 360˚ view of several mountain ranges lined up perfectly quite close to it.

The list of peaks that one can see from Brahmatal Trek are endless – from peaks of Kumaon division to Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Hathi-Ghoda peaks, and so on. The sight of the sun shining on the ice-capped peaks is breathtaking. Don’t forget the view of the beautiful meadows and valleys.

This enchanting trek takes you to a staggering altitude of 12,250 feet through a trekking distance of 24 km. The trek commences at Lohajung, which is at a distance of 210 km from Kathgodam. It takes 10 hours from Kathgodham to reach Lohajung.

The next lap of the trek traverses from Lohajung to Bekaltal and then to Brahmatal Trek. Your onward journey traverses through treacherous trails at Chota Jhandidar and Bada Jhandidar and brings you to Brahmatal Trek summit which flatters you with a front-seat view of grandiose Himalayan peaks which rise above 7,000 meters.

In addition, this trek also treats you to a beautiful vista of the Roopkund trek trail including views of Ali Bugyal, Bedni Bugyal, and Junargali.brahmatal trek yhai ,brahmatal trek map, brahmatal trek blog ,brahmatal trek in november ,brahmatal trek trek the himalayas , brahmatal trek difficulty , brahmatal height
