Hampta Pass Trek is considered the easiest and convenient of all treks in Himachal Pradesh. It is the Ingress to the Spiti Valley from Manali Valley. It is a trek that will leave you in awe of this beautiful place. The variation in the trails is enormous; scenic landscapes, open green pastures and meadows, glacial valleys, easy access and an exceptional, adventurous and hair raising crossing of the pass makes this trekking expedition to Hampta pass an exciting one. Chandratal lake located at 14000 feet approx is the main attraction to visit during the trek. The best months to trek are May and June and August through October. The reason why Hampta pass is a famous trekking zone is snow; the pass has lump sum snow even during the summer which draws more trekkers for visit. The expedition consists of approximately 26 kms of trek.
