Hampta Pass is a passageway in the upper Himalayan Pir Panjal Range that connects Kullu Valley with Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal. This glacial spot is located at an altitude of 4270 m above MSL in the lap of wild nature, away from human settlements, which makes it one of the favorite natural places for trekking and camping.

The Trek starts from Hamta Dam, follows through the lush green meadow of Chikka campsite, continues to vast patch of snow covered landscape and takes one atop of Hamta Pass which offers some of the most amazing of both the valleys – Manali and Spiti.

    If you are looking towards exploring the beauty if the Himalayas and also enjoy the thrills of trek, but with moderate amount of challenges, I would suggest this Hampta Pass Chandratal Trek for you. I did it last year with 3 of my colleagues and few other members. Everything on the way was so refreshing and awesome.

  5. akash

    The Hampta Pass Trek is a Total bliss. You get high with the mountains..the scenic views; the hot Maggie’s and definitely with Snow. But also it’s a moderate level; as I was a bit towards the heavier body persons, there were very little difficulties .otherwise it’s the best one could ever do; to embrace Life.

    Awesome place! Nothing can beat Hampta pass when it comes to natural beauty. Kudis to KPl Expeditions who take us there.

  9. rohini

    Waoo Awesome trekking guys….Had a blast!!! The himachal pradesh is just awesome, it offers the most fascinated trekking in the entire country. Starting from manali and crossing the beautiful valleys we reach the chandratal, lake. it was crystal,clear lake with amazing views. Got to see the very famous and sacred vasist temple. The chain of Himalayan mountains and the meadow flowers followed us during the entire trekking. The best part about the adventure is sightseeing and camping, it feels amazing to, spend over night with friends in small two men tents and the spotting the gorgeous morning. Wao it was incredible to stand at an,altitude of 14000 ft and watch the nearby valleys, distant villages and the snow capped mountains.

  10. Kunal Gupta

    We started trekking from Jobra and the excitement continued till the last day of our Hampta Pass trek. The whole experience of trekking in Himachal Pradesh was really amazing. Moreover with the appointed guides and crew members, the fun went further ahead. Entire Hampta Pass itinerary was planned in a very convincing way and was very fulfilling in every aspect. Thanks KPL Expeditions…
