It takes around 5-6 hours to reach Joshimath from Khulara Village. The drive can be completed in a day, but it is better to start early in the morning so that you don’t get delayed at any point.

Departure time depends on the time of year, but usually, you will have to leave by evening or nightfall. Departure time depends on the time of day as well: if it’s not too hot outside then you can go out even earlier than usual (around 9 AM), but if it is hot then don’t leave until after noon at least!

Departure time also depends on what weekday it is—we recommend leaving either Monday or Tuesday evening so that there will still be plenty of daylight left when you arrive at Joshimath since this area gets very little sunlight during winter months due to heavy cloud cover over most of Uttarakhand region during these months.”

You can trek to Brahmtal from December to March

The best time for trekking at Brahmatal is December- March. This period is considered to be very cold in winter, but it will not be so cold as compared to other seasons. During this period, the temperature stays around 7°C and you can enjoy your trip without having any difficulties or discomfort due to extreme weather conditions.

The best time for visiting Brahmatal is between October and May because there are fewer tourists here than when you go during summers with their large crowds which may cause inconvenience for travellers.
