Hampta Pass Trek (5 Days) Through Manali

Starting from INR 11500

Hampta pass (which is what this trek is all about), connects two magnificent and beautiful valleys: Lahaul and Kullu. While Lahaul valley is rocky terrain, Kullu valley is flush with green meadows. And it is this variation in landscape that makes Hampta Pass trek like no other trek in terms of experience and easiness from trekkers perspective.

Hampta Pass is approximately 35 Kms trek and altitude or height gain goes upto 4,270 meters / 14,000 ft. This trek derives its name from Hampta village which is situated below Sethan village, and is part of the trek route. Highlight of this trek is a drive to Chandra Taal lake (named after moon due to its crescent shape, thus making it lake of the moon), which is situated at the altitude of 4270 meters above sea level.
