• 5-Day Brahmatal Trek

    If you are in the mood for an adventurous trek, this high-altitude trek in the Indian Himalayas is one of the most popular, especially when the trail is covered under a thick blanket of snow. This trek allows you to visit both the high-altitude, natural lakes of Bekaltal and Brahmatal just 7 km apart from each other. Covered on three sides by dense rhododendron forests and a clearing on one side, it indeed makes for a mesmerizing place to set up camp.

    During the summer months, blooming green meadows and open fields keep you company as you make your way to Brahmatal. This is one of the few treks that you have to experience in both the summer and winter season, to truly appreciate the breathtaking beauty of Uttarakhand.

    Please note that the operator can arrange for transportation from Rishikesh/Kathgodam at an additional cost of INR 2000 per person.

    If you are travelling in a group of 4 or more, you can book any start date for the trip. Please get in touch with The Great Next for assistance.


    The trek to the sacred Brahmatal Lake at a height of over 12,000 feet has you traversing dense oak and rhododendron forests before opening into large meadows. The trail will reward you with a different view to keep you company on each day of your trek, from villages to dense forests, to meadows and fields as you make your way to the summit. As you conquer the peak, you are rewarded by magnificent views of Himalayan peaks like Mount Trishul and Mount Chaukhambhain in the distance.
