  • Trip introduction

    This trek to Hampta Pass and Chandratal takes you from the green Kullu Valley, through gorgeous landscape and over boulder-strewn paths, and into the stark Spiti Valley. On this trip, you'll camp at scenic campsites beside sparkling streams at night, and spend days walking through the peaceful wilderness with the blue skies above and the mountains all around.

    Destination

    This Hampta Pass and Chandratal trek takes you through some of the most scenic trails in the Himachal Pradesh region. You'll trek through green valleys filled with apple and apricot orchads, through pine forests and over streams and rickety wooden bridges. As you approach Hampta Pass, the trail becomes rockier and offers a little more challenge. Almost as soon as you cross the Pass, you'll be in Spiti, and the landscape undergoes a dramatic change. You'll see stark grey and brown all around, contrasting with the greenery you've just walked through. And finally, you end at Chandratal. This emerald lake is pristine, and is the highlight of every Hampta Pass trek.
