Hampta Pass Trek | One of the Most Dramatic Crossover Treks in the Himalayas

At 14,000 feet Hampta Pass in Himachal Pradesh falls under those rare, dramatic pass crossings in the Himalayas. On one side is the lush green valley of Kullu — with forests, grasslands, and flowers blooming on the side of your trail. On the other is the almost arid, stark landscape of Lahaul, with barren mountains and almost no vegetation.

Standing on the top of the pass, what’s ahead and behind are two different worlds. It changes in a matter of minutes.

Hampta Pass Trek is a moderate trek in difficulty level ranging from easy to difficult.

You start from Manali which is at an altitude of 6,725 ft and reach an altitude of 14,000 ft in a matter of 4 days.

For the most part, though, it is an easy hike through the valley. However, the terrain becomes difficult as you get closer to the pass. The pass crossing day is a long walk of almost 9 hours.

This makes the trek a moderate one. It is a good trek for fit first-timers
