Participants need to travel by bus or train to Kathgodam.
This 6-day easy to moderate difficulty trek is one of the few winter trekking options available to an avid hiker. This lake is opposite Roopkund, where the famed mystery human skeletons lie. On this trail, you'll get spectacular views of legendary peaks like Trishul, Nanda Ghanti, Chowkhamba, Nilkanth, as well as views of the sprawling Ali Bugyal and Bedni Bugyal, both meadows that are covered in snow. This is the closest you'll be able to get to these peaks without actually climbing them. You'll also get to camp at two frozen glacial lakes, and hike through silent conifer forests. The forests are calm and peaceful, with sounds muffled by the snow, and once you cross the tree-line, you'll start seeing mountain views like you've never seen before.
According to legend, Brahma Tal is the lake by which Lord Brahma meditated. The 6-day trek is one of the few treks that's open during winters and has some really beautiful views. It's not hard, but the trail to the summit and the lake is not very crowded, making this the perfect way to spend some time exploring the mountains in peace.
Camp by the shores of two beautiful, frozen glacial lakes | Climb to the snowy peak of Brahma Tal located at 12,100 ft. | Get unmatched views of Mt. Trishul and the Himalayas

On the way participants take in spectacular views of peaks like Kamet and Panchachuli. By afternoon, participants are in Loharjung. They can spend time in the small market of Loharjung once they check in, or stay in the guesthouse and enjoy the beautiful sunset from their balconies.
