detailed itinerary:

Day 1

And the magical journey begins, The mountains are calling and we must go, Upon arrival, we’ll leave for Lohajung at 6:30 am which is approx 8-9 hrs away from Kathgodam (225 KM away). We’re sure you will be mesmerized by the scenic beauty you would see en route. The road trip form Kathdgodam to Lohajung is the most beautiful one. You will enjoy the most on this trip. Get to know your fellow travellers and make new friends.

We’ll rest at night at the guest house and prepare ourselves for the next day of Brahmatal Trek.

ATM: Dewal has the last ATM point before your Brahmatal trek begins. It’s advisable to withdraw money in Kathgodam itself

Day 2 

Pump up yourselves with some amazing breakfast to begin the most scenic summit. We’ll head towards Bekaltal. The whole route is so surreal. You don’t get the chance to trek around pine and fir trees, which is as huge as any building in our cities. The time where you quit on the city life for a while and dwell in nature. To accompany the view, we’ll also get a chance to glance at Nandaghunti Peak.

We’ll trek for 5 hrs and the distance covered would be for 8 km.

We’ll stay in tents overnight. Just some illuminated tents and silence. All around you would be trees and a million stars twinkling for you. We’ll light up a bonfire to keep you all warm and share ghost stories to scare you all of. We’ll have a wholesome meal and take rest to climb up Brahmatal the next day.

Day 3

After having an amazing breakfast, we’ll freshen-up and leave for an actual Brahmatal trek. The route is all covered in snow. Make snow angels if you dare. The cold weather and snow will make you feel as if you’re in a pretty winter wonderland.

It would take us 4 hrs to complete the trek. The trails go through a forest and when you reach Telindi top, behold the enchanting views of the mighty Himalayas. We’ll continue to walk to arrive at Brahmatal or Khabekhal Lake. We’ll disperse for the night and again sleep in tents. With the same set of silence, serenity, and cold air around you. We’ll light up a bonfire and have some dinner to fill our empty stomachs so that we are all ready to dance and sing-along.

We’ll call it a night once all of us have had enough fun and made memories. <3

Day 4

Right after breakfast, get ready to climb to the top of Brahmatal. We promise you all the most beautiful peak you have ever seen. Tread along the tricky pathways which go through Chota Jhandidar and Bada Jhandidar. This trail is encircled by a mountain ridge with valleys on both sides. You will take 2.5 hours to reach Brahmatal Top.

On this journey, revel in the glimpses of magnificent Himalayan Ranges. Mt. Trishul is very close along with the views of Nandhaghunti. From the top, you can revel in the exotic views of snow-covered Himalayan Ranges.

Proceed to the next campsite in Daldum and the trek will take up to 3 hours to finish. You will be covering 2.7 KM of distance in this trek today. Again, forests will be accompanying you through these trekking trails.

We’ll keep the HikerWolf’s tradition alive and fire up some woods and dance around in a circle. Have some amazing dinner and relax by looking up in the sky. A sky filled with millions of dreams and stars. Our cities surely are missing this out.

Day 5

Today, you will trail back to Lohajung along the same path you took to reach Brahmatal. You once again get the chance to capture all the beauty in one frame. Have a snow fight in between, make angles, and just enjoy your way down with all your new friends. Friends you make here will be the most special friends you’ll make. Once we reach here, check-in to our guest house.

After lunch, we will visit the beautiful Mundoli village and get the taste of pure Himalayan village life. Embroil with the local villagers and learn a lot about the tradition and history of the divine place. Also, visit a nearby museum or have your time spend playing cricket in the nearby ground. At night we’ll reach the guest house. And it will be the to the lit light with Campfire, Music, and Dance.

Day 6

The day we all say goodbye 🙁 Our trip and an amazing trek comes to an end. We’ll depart to Kathgodam early in the morning to reach there by evening.

But, you can plan how to spend the day fruitfully on your own, be it sightseeing or shopping, Kathgodam will not disappoint you. Brahmatal Trek Trip ends here.

If it rains in the field, there would be no problems because all our living tents, our kitchen tents, and our bathroom tents are waterproof. You will stay dry inside.

21. Why is the trekking pole needed?
It differs from person to person. If you think this will help you maintain balance while trekking, bring your cane. Some people believe that walking sticks break the pace while walking. It depends on you
