Hampta Pass Trek Overview:

The Hampta Pass trek in Himachal Pradesh offers a unique blend of landscapes. On one side, you have lush green valleys, and on the other, you encounter rugged, barren mountains. This trek showcases the stark contrast of nature, from blooming spring flowers in meadows to jagged terrains.

Hampta Pass acts as a vantage point to witness two distinct parts of Himachal’s beauty. Looking north reveals the vast Lahaul valley, devoid of vegetation. Turning your gaze to the other side, you’ll see the lush green forests of Kullu valley. The trek covers around 26 kilometers, yet the ever-changing landscape makes it feel like a journey through four seasons. You’ll experience warm sun rays, blooming flowers, and the cold of Lahaul – Spiti deserts.

The trail leads through alpine forests of Maple, Birch, Oak, and Deodar trees. Further, you’ll encounter meadows, sparkling streams, and ascend to the snowline. The steep climb to Hampta Pass rewards you with panoramic views and the unique crossover between valleys. Descending to Sia Goru, you’ll be mesmerized by the Himalayas’ lap. The route to Chatru includes inclines and loose rocks, displaying the trek’s diversity. Chandratal Lake is a highlight, and the barrenness of Chhatru contrasts with the lushness you’ve seen.

The best time for the Hampta Pass trekking is June to September when the snow patches are visible, and the valley is vibrant. The trek is moderate, suitable for fit beginners. Safety-wise, it’s considered safe, with caution around stream crossings and descents.
