Hampta Pass Trek

About The Trip

On Pir Panjal range in the Himalayas at an altitude of 4270 m (14039 ft) lies Hampta Pass. It is a small corridor between Lahaul’s Chandra Valley and the Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh, India. This pass is frequently used by shepherds of the lower Himalayan region, seeking high-altitude grassland in the dry cold desert of Lahaul during summer time. Considered to be a beginners trek, having lots to offer to its trekkers in the form of vertical rock walls, waterfalls, hanging glaciers, pinewoods, rhododendron forests, open meadows, tiny lakes, and mountain peaks rising above 6000 meters, making this trek a must-do-trek for everyone. The extra surprise element in this trek is the visit to Chandratal Lake, which is a high-altitude glacial lake.

How to Reach

The best way to get to Manali is to take an overnight bus from Delhi or Chandigarh. The travel time from Delhi is 12-14 hours and from Chandigarh is 8-10 hours. Hence, Chandigarh is a better option. Tickets can be booked online on www.redbus.in or www.hrtc.gov.in. HRTC or HPTDC buses are usually on schedule. Ensure you book your bus early the previous evening, so even in case of unexpected weather/road-related delays, you are still on time for the pickup. The other option of reaching Manali is to take a flight to the nearest airport, the Bhuntar airport. This is around 50 km from Manali and takes one and a half-hour in a cab. However, this is not a recommended option as the flights are infrequent, expensive, and get cancelled on short notice if adverse weather condition prevails.
