What is the Best Time to do the Brahmatal Trek?

Category

By Saba Husain

Located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, Brahmatal trek has four seasons for trekking - winter, spring, summer, and autumn. And it's beautiful in all these four seasons. To choose a season, it's important to know what you expect from the trek. Each season has its own specialty and knowledge of these definitely helps us in choosing the right season to trek to  Brahmatal.

Nights are usually clear in winter. You get a clear view of stars and constellations. But the temperatures dip to sub-zero levels at night. You’ll need to wear all 5 layers to maintain your core body temperature. 

Days are cold too. During day time, the average maximum temperature reaches around 10 degrees Celsius. 

SPRING (MAR – APR)

Spring brings floral bloom! You see bouquets of spectacular red and pink Rhododendrons across the trail. The forests are green with patches of snow interspersed to enhance the scenic views even more.

The weather is pleasant, not too hot during the daytime with the maximum temperature reaching around 12C.

Nights are cool and at times windy. You’ll need to wear at least 2 - 3 layers as min temperatures may dip up to 5C. 

SUMMER (MAY – JUN)

Summer has temperatures soaring as high as 25C to 27C during the daytime and therefore it's extremely important that you stay hydrated throughout the course. 

The meadows have a  yellow to brownish colour during the month of May and become lush green in the month of June. 

 It's cool during the nighttime with minimum temperatures reaching around 15C. Due to dry weather, you may experience haze that obstructs clear skies after midday..

AUTUMN (OCT – NOV)

Considered the most recommended season for beginners, this season will provide you with splendid views, and absolutely clear skies which helps in experiencing more vibrant sunrises and sunsets. The forest trail is marked with autumn colours and a blanket of maple leaves to add crunch to your step.

The day is not so hot as it is in summer with maximum temperatures reaching 20-21C. It's quite pleasant and cool during night time when the temperatures reach around 12C 

MONSOON (JUL – SEP)

Monsoon season brings heavy rains which cause landslides and makes the trail very slippery. Therefore, this trek is mostly nonfunctional during this season. The temperatures range between 15 to 25 C.

Conclusion

As you can see that Brahmatal has a lot to offer irrespective of the seasons we wish to trek. Brahmatal is beautiful at all times and therefore it's up to us trekkers to understand what our expectations are and plan based on that.
