Among the list of treks that Himachal Pradesh takes pride in, Hampta Pass somehow seizes the limelight. Sitting at an altitude of 4270 m, this pass on the Pir Panjal range gives its travelers just the right mix of wooded stretches, alpine meadows, shimmering streams, and glaciers. Hampta pass is generally known as a small corridor between Lahaul's Chandra Valley and lush Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh. The trek is moderate in nature and can be enjoyed by beginners who are looking for a quick getaway.
Imagine walking past the verdant forests with the whiff of Himalayan Cedar, Oak, Pine, Juniper, and Rhododendron. As you leave behind the forests, the next view you get is of the bright green valleys, that takes you closer to the pass. Be careful as there will be a lot of sharp climbs coupled with traversing the glistening streams. Every step you take leads you to the Hampta Pass where all you get are the astounding view of the Lahaul valley. That’s Hampta Pass trek for you.
Further, the camping sites are going to win your heart with their perfect picture postcards. You also get an opportunity to behold the sight of the moon shaped lake, Chandratal and Rohtang Pass.
