After my 3rd semester exams were over I was eager to travel to some place and I wanted to go on a trek for a long time but none of my friends agreed . One day I was scrolling through tripoto and came across Brahmatal. The first company I talked to was Nomad Adventures the owner was polite and knew the place well and was convinced to go with them .
Brahamtal is a high altitude glacial lake in the Uttarakhand state of India, situated at the elevation of 12100 ft / 3666 m . This is one of the few winter trek that can be done in December to Feburary. It offers brilliant views of Mt. Thrishul and Mt. 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.
This was my first trek ever,had no prior experience so had to do a lot of homework in terms of gear shopping and convincing my parents to go solo . Lucky for me this was my birthday week and they agreed. So booked my bus ticket, packed my bag and camera and I was all ready to go .
