  • Trip introduction

    One of the most beloved trekking routes in Himachal Pradesh, the Hampta Pass trek begins in Manali and takes you as high as 14,700 feet. You'll trek through the lush grasslands of the Hampta Valley, and will see the landscape change to barren mountains and rugged slopes as you approach Hampta Pass. This is the shortest itinerary for the Hampta Pass trek, so it is perfect for those who don't have time or who want a short getaway in the mountains.

    NOTE: This itinerary does not include Chandratal.

    Destination

    Rewind the clock by a few decades and the Hampta Pass was a popular route for traders from Spiti to cross into Manali for business. Today, the Hampta Pass route is just as popular with trekking enthusiasts. Overlooking the twin mountain peaks of Bara Shigri and Chita Shigri, the Hampta Pass is surrounded by melting glaciers and steep slopes on all sides. The climb to the pass is steep and adventurous, but the stunning views of the surrounding mountains will make it well worth your effort. And if you are lucky, you might even cross paths with the Himalayan black bears that roam the mountainside.
