    One of the most beloved treks near Manali, the Hampta Pass trek attracts hundreds of travellers with all levels of experience each year. Decades ago, this high-altitude mountain pass connected the two regions of Manali and Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh. Even today, native villagers continue to use the trail and local shepherds are often seen using the green meadows of the trail as grazing fields for sheep and goats. The pass is named after the namesake Hampta village, located at the base of the mountain pass.
