Manali is a major travel destination and is a gateway to most Himachal treks. You can get to Manali by bus from Delhi, or fly in to Bhuntar, the nearest airport (about 2 hours away).
The Hampta Pass trek is one of the most well-known treks in Himachal Pradesh. The reason that so many people love the Hampta Pass trek is that it isn't too hard, but takes you to 14,000 feet in just 5 days. In addition, you get to experience all the adrenalin of scrambling over glaciers, navigating a challenging section at the pass, and walking over snowy patches and rocky stretches.
The Hampta Pass trek is one of the most scenic treks in Himachal Pradesh.

You'll trek from Manali to Hampta Pass, camping en route, and end with a visit to the fantastic Chandratal Lake, a high altitude glacial lake with blue, blue water.
