Brahmatal is a treasure house of mythological tales. Brahmatal Lake itself receives its name from one of these stories according to which Lord Brahma meditated at this location. The base camp of Brahmatal trek – Lohagunj, is a tiny Himalayan village that is rich in culture and mythological tales.

In the daytime, temperature in brahmatal ranges between 0°C to 2°C. Atthe night, the temperatures fall from around -5°C to -10°C. Butitis still slightly better in the tents.
