Brahmatal Trek Some of our most popular excursions are favorites because of the mountain scenery they offer. Think Chaukhambha from Deoriatal Chandrashila or Bandarpoonchia from Dayara Bugyal. Magnified views of such large mountains are difficult to find. However, Brahmatal is a hike that takes a cake. It has a vision that will win all of these!
Here's why. On the very second day, you climb a beautiful alpine rose and oak forest to see the massive white wall of Trishul. And these views only get closer as you walk your ridge towards Jhandi Top.
At the top of Jhand you are almost in the middle of mountain views. On the right rises the massive Mt Trishul and on the left stands Mt Nanda Ghunti. You’ll even see the Ronti saddle, the ridge that connects Mt Trishul and Mt Nanda Ghunt!
That's not all. At the highest point of the Brahmatal hike, the Brahmatal Top, a new set of mountains opens up in front of you. You see Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Hathi Ghoda … while Trishul and Nanda Ghunti are on your right. Always there
