• Trip introduction

    The Hampta Pass trek offers you an exciting combination of lush green Himachal valleys and the stark landscapes of Lahaul and Spiti. You'll walk through meadows and thick oak and cedar-scented forests, followed by some tricky ice-covered trails that require careful negotiating. You'll find yourself going through gushing rivers one day, while trekking across deserted hilly regions the next. And let’s not forget the views that the Hampta Pass trek has to offer; from the Dhauladhar Ranges to the Chandra Valley to the Lahual and Spiti peaks; this trek is a spectacular adventure in all its aspects.


    Located at a height of 14,108 feet, this high pass is found in the upper reaches of Himachal Pradesh. With Manali as the starting point of the trek, your route passes through Jobra, Chikha and Balu ka Ghera before reaching the main destination which is Hampta Pass itself. But your journey doesn’t end there! After crossing through lush grasslands, rivers and icy trails, you'll head on, through Shea Goru and Chhatru, and onward to the glistening moon-shaped freshwater sake of Chandratal. Chandratal lake is a sight you'll never forget, with clear blue water reflectin the wide expanse of sky above, and the mountains all around.
