You should embark on this adventure because you can do the Brahmatal Trek solo and even with a group of friends during the peak winter months of January and February. It is one of the few high-summit treks in India that stays open during the winter season. The natural beauty with minimal human interference and the panoramic views of the Trishul Range from Brahmatal Lake make it one of the top choices for trekkers in India and across the world.
The Brahmatal Trek is one of those getaways that you can undertake throughout the year. However, it is advisable not to plan your trek during the monsoon season because of a heightened probability of landslides and cloud bursts. You can plan the trip during the spring-summer season-spanning late March to early May, and witness the receding snowline above the Tilandi campsite as well as a fiery landscape of red and pink rhododendrons. The post-monsoon or autumn season-spanning September to November promises clear skies with excellent mountain views, alluring sunrises, and sunsets. It is the best time for photography enthusiasts and professional photographers. For all those who wish to trek and camp in the snow and witness the magnificence of the frozen Brahmatal Lake, peak winter months from December to early February is the ideal time.
Be careful of the essentials for your Brahmatal Trek. These include backpack and daypack, well-made trekking shoes and poles, at least five layers of warm clothing including thermal inners, tops and bottoms, raincoats, 3-4 pairs of synthetic gloves and socks, cap, sunglasses, balaclava, sunscreen, lip balm, toiletries like biodegradable soaps and excess toilet papers, flashlight with spare batteries, water bottles, medicines, and first-aid kit, and instant-energy-givers like chocolate bars.
This high-altitude trek is characterized by frequently changing weather conditions. Hence your Brahmatal Trek itinerary should be flexible and contain a few extra days in case of delays caused due to weather changes. You should follow the orders and instructions of your team leader and do not wander off on your own. If you opt for a homestay at the base, interact with the hosts with respect and friendliness. Try to carry your luggage. Pack for all eventualities but keep your luggage to a minimum. Do not litter.
The usual timeframe for the Brahmatal Trek is 6 days. Generally, the first and last days are spent traveling on road to the starting point of Lohajung. This leaves the middle 4 days for exploration and various hiking adventures.
Most tour operators’ class the Brahmatal Trek package as moderate difficulty. During the trip you will hike some 25km. This includes a range of ascents and high-altitude terrain. It is advisable to have prior hiking experience, and a decent level of fitness.
