Trek Description

If you enjoy being in the middle of nature, now is the time to walk across Hampta Pass’s dreamland of uncertain terrains. Every few hours of walking on the Hampta Pass trekking path, the scenery changes dramatically.

The lack of treacherousness in the path is offset by the richness of natural beauty, which will surprise you at every turn of the journey. The entire Hampta Pass trek track is filled with everything you might hope to see on a hike. The exhilaration of the ascent to Hampta Pass adds to the dramatic changes.

Crossing the Hampta Pass is a fantastic adventure story for hikers. The tense exhilaration of ascending to the pass across several cliffs will be unforgettable.

Itinerary

From Delhi, arrive at Manali around midday the next day. Our guest home is located in Vashisht (2050 meters/6725 feet), 3.5 kilometres from Manali town (Rs 150/200 by Auto Rickshaw). Vashisht has a temple, which is known for its hot spring within. Take a couple of hours in the afternoon to hike to Jogini Falls. Guests are accommodated in a lodge or a guest home.

We begin our adventure today by driving 30 kilometres from Preni hamlet to the Jobri roadhead (2850 metres, 9350 feet). The route is tortuous, with severe hairpin curves and significant elevation rise.

Jobri is not a community, although it does feature a few temporary structures for the hydro power plant’s local workers. The trip begins from here. We take a left after crossing a concrete bridge. On our left, we retain the Aleo Nallah.

The route winds its way through the confer woodland until emerging into an open meadow after crossing the Aleo Nallah. We will camp at Chhika (3020 m/9905 ft) after a 5 km easy trek that will take 2 to 3 hours. The camping area is located along the stream’s left bank. A lovely waterfall may be seen above the campsite’s slopes.

After breakfast, we depart for Bhalu-Ka-Gera (3600 m/11800 ft), which translates to “Bear’s Circle,” where brown bears are reported to hibernate throughout the winter. We cross a little side creek over a wood bridge shortly after leaving the camp. We stay to the left of the valley and softly ascend the Aleo Nallah’s slopes.

Today’s stroll is particularly beautiful, with a plethora of wildflowers blanketing the valley. Another gushing side stream emptying into the main Aleo Nallah must be crossed. It is preferable to cross this early in the morning, as the water level rises over the day.

We continue going on the left side after crossing the river, gradually ascending to the camp location. The distance is around 8 kilometers, and it can take 4 to 5 hours to complete.

We begin early in the morning and keep on the valley’s left crest. Several snow bridges may be seen on the river depending on the season, which we came across. Continue on the left to reach the Lahaul side and pass Hampta Pass (4270 m/14005 ft).

The ice field below the pass is almost completely intact throughout the year. The ascent to the pass is gentle, although the last crest is a little steep. After crossing the pass, we descend steeply to a level area with stones strewn around.

Now we’ll keep on our left and follow another stream flowing from the mountains’ upper reaches. Moving down the river, we arrive at Shiagoru (3800 m/12470 ft) after a nearly flat trek. The distance is around 9 kilometres, and it may take 8 to 10 hours to complete.

We begin the day by crossing the river and staying to the left of it. We easily follow our descent while walking by the river in the first part, but it becomes a little trickier later on in the boulder and rock zone. We reach a vast valley of the river Chandra after descending and can see the motor route linking Spiti and Kaza.

We continue our trek by crossing the side stream log bridge and keeping the Chandra River on our right. We camp at Chhatru (3350 m/11000 ft) on the Chandra’s left bank. This spot, on the road from Kaza to Manali, showcases the Trans Himalaya’s bleak brown and white splendour.

On the other side of the river, there are a few seasonal Dhabas that may be reached through the Kaza road’s steel bridge. The distance is around 7 kilometres, and it might take 3 to 4 hours to complete. This is where we set up camp.

By the end of June, the route to Chandra Tal is usually accessible and stays open until mid-October. If the road to Chandra Tal is closed, we will travel to Kunzum La, a high pass that separates Lahaul and Spiti. We get in the car and go to Batal through Chhota Dhara via the Kaza route.

We may either proceed to Chandra Tal (4300 m/14100 ft) or Kunzum La (4300 m/14100 ft) from Batal, both of which are nearly at the same altitude. Chandra Tal is a moon-shaped, crystal-clear lake with a breathtaking mountain backdrop. The Chandra Bhaga (CB) range mountains may be seen from Kunzum. A monastery and a Chorten with colourful prayer flags may be found here.

We will go to Manali through Rohtang Pass this morning after breakfast. By 2 p.m., we’ve arrived at Manali. This is where our journey comes to an end. Take a bus to Delhi in the afternoon or evening, or stay the night.
