  • Trip introduction

    The Hampta pass trek is one of the most popular and delightful treks in the Manali region.

    It has a moderate grade of difficulty and is an excellent adventure for first-time trekkers who are reasonably fit.

    It is also a good option for first forays into the mountains because it offers a rounded Himalayan adventure – from pine forests to rolling meadows filled with wildflowers, moving gradually into the remote heights of the Lahaul region.

    Destination

    This picturesque trek takes you past varying degrees of mountain landscapes. From enchanting villages with wooden houses, terraced apple orchards and lush green valleys, to more stark vistas in earthy colours and rock spires jutting towards the sky, you'll receive a complete Himalayan experience here.
