Hampta Pass trek with Chandrataal Back in the days, Hampta Valley was a mere passage for horse-herders and shepherds to travel between Kullu Valley and Spiti Valley.

But of late, it has become one of the popular trekking destinations. Connecting Manali and Chandratal, it has become one of the best-selling treks for tourists visiting Manali.

 But it wasn’t until 2018 and most of the popular adventure tour companies started organizing Hampta Pass tours. Soon, tourist inflow increased in the valley and it became one of the most popular tourist places in Himachal Pradesh.

The Hampta Pass trek is particularly popular among tourists coming from Delhi and Chandigarh. Located in the Pir Panjal range, the top point of Hamta Pass lies at an altitude of 4270m above sea level.

As mentioned above, it is a small corridor that bridges Manali in Kullu Valley to Chandratal in Lahaul and Spiti Valley. Other than seasonal trekkers, the meadows and grasslands Hampta Pass are used by shepherds too, seeking high altitude grasslands in summer.

Uniqueness of Hampta Pass trek with Chandratal Hampta Pass is not just splendid in its charm but a rare spectacle at that. It is a narrow pass that climbs out of the Kullu valley and overlooks Lahaul valley’s long, desertous and scenic stretches.

There is a vast difference in landscapes that this trek packs. Traverse through alpine forests, huge rock formations and exotic flora-fauna to reach the glistening Moon Lake, a mythicized beacon of nature.

Not only does this trek offer Lahaul’s vegetation and cold deserts, it provides the best views of Dhauladhar ranges.

What’s more is that you get to closely observe the culture of the inhabitants of nature’s high altitude marvels. Why travel? Experience
