    Destination

    Perched in the midst of the Pir Panjal mountain range, Hampta Pass connects the two valleys of Lahaul and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh. Decades ago, the trail going through the Hampta Pass served as an important route for traders in the valley. On this Hampta Pass trek, as you trek deeper and deeper in the Kullu valley, you'll witness a changing landscape, from the lush, green hillside to the barren, arid terrain. Often, the Hampta Pass is layered by vast patches of snow, offering panoramic views of a pristine white landscape.
