The most liked Himalayan monsoon summit

Hampta Pass Trek

4.5/5

trip overview

The ideal trek for first-timers, the Hampta Pass Trek is an absolute treat for everyone who is looking for a Himalayan adventure! Unlike most treks that start from a remote village, the most accessible point for the Hampta Pass Trek in 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 Trek 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 Lahaul 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. This trek is possible in the months of May and early June also. Unlike the usual Hampta pass Trek route, which only opens up in late June.

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

Your Hampta pass trek will start with a drive from Manali to Jobra, alongside the Bias and Tons rivers. The drive also passes by beautiful pine forests. You can discover the panaromice view while you are on this trek. Hampta pass trek seems to be like funnel as it narrow valley trek. 

the average temperature of the trek is around 5 to 6 celcius even though trekkers plan it in monsoon season that is the reason, it is called thrilling and daring adventure trek. Enjoy the surrounding for a couple of minutes and head towards the meadow. Today’s trek is around for 4 – 5 hours. The walking trail of the trek is 9km long from Jobra to Chika. Chika camp site is spacious patch of green. The Rani River flowing in the middle makes this place perfect for setting up the tents. Overnight in tent.

In Todays Hampta pass trek, we will move towards the most spectacular part of the trek as we cross the Hampta Pass, from here you can see the Indrasan Peak and its gigantic glacier. The place is usually windy and cold so the group of  trekkers don’t stay here more. Here you can discover scenes and calmness that you feel from the top. 

However mostly trekkers love to spend their time at this campsite and this is their favourite campsite because it is surrounded by greenery with an astonishing valley’s view of Lahul. And here, you get to experience the barren landscape of the Himalayas in the Lahul and Spiti Valley. Overnight in Camp.

you can enjoy mesmerizing views from the peak point. Then we will move down to our camp site in Siagoru and it takes approximately 2 hours. but you will have to be prepared while moving down because the path is slippery filled with rocks and loose oil. so this can be harmful for your knee while decending.

Even we can say that predominantly trekkers’s dream landscape is this.Today’s walikg trails can take approximately 6 to 7 hours for the day. Chatru is a major point of paths from Rohtang Pass, Hamta Pass and Spiti.
