  • Trip introduction

    This Hampta Pass trek takes you on a 6-day adventure in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh with stunning views of Mt. Indrasan, the highest peak in the Kullu valley. As you trek to an altitude of over 14,000 feet in the Pir Panjal range, you'll make your way trek past roaring waterfalls and river streams, get distant views of peaks in the Spiti Valley, camp in alpine tents under the starlit sky and wake up to misty mornings deep in nature!

    Another highlight of this trek, you'll travel to visit the crescent-shaped Chandratal Lake, a pleasant high-altitude lake with beautiful reflections of surrounding mountains. With a relatively easy trail through forests of oak, maple and pine, this Hampta Pass trek is perfect for all types of trekkers, seasoned and amateur. So, don’t think twice, book your spot, pack your bag and here you are.

    Destination

    Perched in the midst of the Pir Panjal mountain range, Hampta Pass connects the two valleys of Lahaul and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh. Decades ago, the trail going through the Hampta Pass served as an important route for traders in the valley. On this Hampta Pass trek, as you trek deeper and deeper in the Kullu valley, you'll witness a changing landscape, from the lush, green hillside to the barren, arid terrain. Often, the Hampta Pass is layered by vast patches of snow, offering panoramic views of a pristine white landscape.

    Destination highlights

    • Explore the scenic route of the Hampta Pass trek.
    • Get astounding views of the Pir Panjal mountain range.
    • Trek through dense jungles, green meadows and snowy patches.
    • Camp in tents pitched at some of the most picturesque locations.
