Best Time To Visit:
Winters (December-March): The best thing about the Brahmatal Trek is that it is the only winter trek that is open from December to March. This is thought to be the best time to go on the Brahmatal trek. During the cold winter months, daytime temperatures should range from 0°C to 2°C. Temperatures may drop to around -5°C to -10°C at night. After a long day of hiking, chilly nights necessitate some proper warm clothing and a clean pair of warm socks.
Furthermore, you can gaze out your tent window at the snow-covered mountains all day while sipping a hot cup of tea.
Summer/Autumn/Spring (May-October): The weather is pleasant during the day, with a cool breeze keeping you refreshed the entire time. Temperatures during this time vary depending on height or altitude, as snow patches may appear in the higher peaks but not in the lower ranges, as in the winter.
One cannot imagine seeing the entire galaxy of stars right after the golden sunset amidst the valleys with a mild cool breeze soothing your mind and soul.
