Hampta Pass Trek

Hampta Pass Trek 2023 – Best Trek in Manali

  • 5 Days
  • Group : 8-15 People
  • Guided Trek
  • Difficulty : Easy
  • Start: Manali
  • Altitude
    Altitude : 4270 m

The Hampta Pass is a stunning sight to behold. At 14,000 feet, it is one of the highest mountain passes in the Himalayas. This pass provides stunning views of both the lush green valley of Kullu and the barren landscape of Lahaul. It is truly a unique experience to be able to see such different worlds in such close proximity.

When standing on top of the pass, one can’t help but feel a sense of awe at the natural beauty that surrounds them. It is an unforgettable experience that will stay with you long after you’ve left.

The Hampta Pass is Himachal Pradesh’s own Valley of Flowers. The landscape is strikingly similar to the famed Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand – a green, narrow valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains – but with a key difference.

Once you cross over the Hampta Pass and enter the other side, you’ll be met with an altogether different, and equally stunning, landscape. This is the Spiti Valley, known for its barren stretches, rugged terrain and deep blue skies.

The trek from Kullu to Hampta Pass is thrilling and exciting, with dramatic changes in scenery as you make your way up the mountain. The trek is a great adventure, full of nervous excitement as you climb over many ledges, always seeming to be getting closer to the pass but never quite sure until you reach it.

In short, the Hampta Pass Trek is a must-visit for any nature lover looking to experience the best of both worlds – from verdant valleys to arid deserts.
