Hampta Pass Trek
(Ex-Delhi)

4.5/5

trip overview

The ideal trek for first timers, the Hampta Pass Trek Delhi is an absolute treat for everyone who is looking for a Himalayan adventure! Unline most treks which start from a remote village, the most accessible point for the Hampta Trek is Manali, at an altitude of 14,100 feet. This trek has something for everyone – the adventurous first timers and the seasoned hikers. Though the Hampta pass isn’t a breeze, it poses fewer challenges than most other treks. Its appeal lies in the fact that it connects the picturesque Valleys of Kullu and Lahual along with providing amazing landscapes and natural foliage to the trekker. The flora and fauna are also seen in abundance – such as the rare Himalayan birds.

This trek doesn’t cross the pass and head over to the Lahaul region as the road connecting Lahaul to Manali is under heavy snow, early in the season. Instead, we return from Manali. The Hampta Pass and Chandratal Trek is around 35km long. The Hampta Pass Trek duration is 4 to 5 days.

Most of the avid trekkers choose to go on this trek during May and early June also for the best experience of this Snowy trek, as Hampta Pass Trek best time to visit. Also, the temperature is pretty normal pleasant in this Hampta Pass weather. Unlike the usual Hampta pass route, which only opens up in late June.

The trekkers who have already been to this Hampta Pass trekking can go for Valley Of Flowers Trek which is based in Uttarakhand and the starting point of the Valley of Flowers  Trek is beautiful Joshimath village.
