Ram Bagh Chowk is a popular landmark in Manali.
The Hampta Pass and Chandratal trek is a complete Himalayan adventure. It takes you through charming villages, up through thick forests and high altitude meadows filled with mountain flowers, through a snow-packed pass, and then on to the dry landscape of Lahaul. The highlight of the trip is the deep blue Chandratal Lake.
This trek is suitable for trekkers who are reasonably fit, and can be a thrilling experience for first-time trekkers in the Himalayas.
As mountain adventures go, the Hampta Pass-Chandratal route is amongst the best. It combines the variety of landscape - from stark rock structures to snow-filled passes, from lush open meadows to thickly wooded forests - with a clearwater lake, a trail that winds through villages with quaint wooden houses, delightful apple orchards, views of mountain peaks and glaciers, and nights at spectacular campsites.
