Overview: Why you should choose this Trek

Hampta Pass is one of the most popular treks in the Himachal Pradesh. The entire trek is a 25km trek. Hampta Pass is a good choice for the beginners who want to test their limits in the Himalayan terrain.

Lying on one side is the lush green valley of Kullu- which has its own cultural heritage and charm with green alpine meadows, forests and flowers. On the other side of it lies almost parched stark landscape of Lahaul valley. Suddenly you witness barren mountains and almost no vegetation landscape.

And yes crossing river streams the ultimate thrill and excitement that you can get is also there in this trek. If you’re a beginner to a Himalayan trek, Hampta pass is a good choice. Having said that, since you go all the way upto 14,000 ft, this requires a good amount of preparation.

Hampta Pass is considered one of the most popular treks in Himachal Pradesh. The trek span is 5 days which is perfect for long weekends. It starts from a location called Jobri which is around 2 hours drive from Manali and it terminates at Chattru, which is located in Lahaul valley. The trek offers breathtaking views of landscapes, lush green valleys, lofty mountains, and magnificent Himalayan peaks. The most interesting thing about this trek is that one can easily notice a change in the landscape. Starting from lush green views and ending at barren lands of Lahaul & Spiti valley, the trek amazes at every step.

Apart from all this, Hampta Pass trek has one more attraction, which is Chandratal Lake. Chandratal is a famous and one of the most beautiful lakes in Himachal. The lake visit is perfect to eliminate the exhaust of the trek. The best time to go on this trek is from May to September. The gradient of the trek is moderate but it is ideal for everyone whether you are a novice or an experienced. The experience gets better if you have done at least one high altitude trek before.
