There is never dearth of oxygen as the Brahmatal is surrounded by dense forest of Deodar, Rododendron, Thuner (Taxus Baccata), Khorsu etc… so it acts as a reservoir of oxygen.

Monsoon is a lucrative time of lush-green nature to walk through this magical valley. This time of the year over the plateau is ventured by animals to graze the wet grassland of Himalayas.
