Description

Hampta Pass Trek is one of the most delightful treks in the Manali region. This trek proceeds through forests of walnut, oak and the occasional alder which keep you spellbound with their sheer grandeur. On this trek, you experience both the Kullu-Manali valleys and the Lahaul-Spiti valleys, with both the valleys separated by the Rohtang Pass and Hampta Pass. The valleys are very different, with Kullu-Manali having a lush green forest cover and Lahaul-Spiti on the other hand, are in the rain shadow region and has very little vegetation. The barren landscape in the upper regions and the green valley below make the trail truly awe-inspiring.
