Brahamtal is another high altitude glacial lake in the Uttarakhand state of India, situated at the elevation of 12100 ft. This is one of the few winter trek that can be done in December to feburary. It offers brilliant views of Mt. Thrishul and Nanda Ghunti and this is the reason enough to go on this trek. The amount of snow on the trek makes trekking a little challenging for the trekkers. This trek passes through some of the stunning and exotic landscape of Himalayas with short stretches of rhododendron, oak forest and snow fields. If lucky you could spot Uttarakhand's state bird "Himalayan Monal".
