  • Trip introduction

    Hampta Pass is one of the most beloved treks in the Himalayas, because it offers views of two a dramatically different landscapes. On one side is the green valleys of Kullu, dotted with flowers and filled with apple orchards; and on the other side lies the stark and sprawling moonscape of the Lahaul Spiti valley.

    You'll end with a visit to the beautiful Chandratal Lake, and drive back via Rohtang Pass, one of the highest motorable roads in the world.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum group size of 6 pax is required to make a booking.

    Destination

    Hampta Pass has been on the list of trekkers of different levels of experience. It involves some high altitude trekking, and long hours of walking, so is not usually recommended for first-timers, unless they're very fit.

    You can expect to cross scree-covered terrain and walk quite long stretches in a day.
