Why Hampta Pass A Must-Do Trek?

Hampta Pass is a beautiful crossover trek that spreads across the lush green valleys of Kullu-Manali to the arid and barren landscapes of Chandra Valley in Lahaul. This trek presents the amalgamation of distinct landscapes and cultures, which is a unique experience in itself. The trek entwines along rocky paths, grasslands, gushing streams, cascading waterfalls, hanging glaciers, and the beautiful crescent-shaped emerald lake ‘Chandratal’. Get to witness the confluence of three passes, Hampta Pass, Rohtang Pass, and Spiti, which is quite a surreal experience and not to mention a close encounter with the Buddhist culture and the lifestyle in the remote Himalayan villages. The inhabitants of Sethan are originally migrants from Tibet and Spiti Valley and you will get to observe their distinct culture and traditions.

For nature lovers, Hampta Pass is a great adventure, and the terrains keep changing vividly at every juncture of the trek, added to it is the thrill of climbing a dramatic pass, which makes the trek even more adventurous. Standing on top of the pass, you can see the stark difference in the landscapes ahead and behind the pass. Hampta Pass Trek lets you experience 5 days of diverse landscapes in a beautiful mountain rhapsody.

Itinerary
Manali To Chika Via Jobra | Walk Through Forest Cover

  • Altitude:
    Manali - 2,100 m / 6,400 ft
    Jobra - 3,000 m / 9,800 ft
    Chika 3,100 m / 10,100 ft.
  • Drive Distance (Manli to Jobra): 16km | 1hr.
  • Trek Distance (Jobra to Chika):  3km | 2hrs.
  • Enough water through the trail.
  • Easy to moderate trail.
  • Stay in a tent
  • Meeting Time and Place: 12 pm at The Woodbine, Naggar Rd, Manali, Himachal Pradesh 175131.
  • Reach Chika campsite by 5 pm.

The trekking expedition starts at Manali where you will be driven to Jobra in a vehicle. Manali lies at an elevation of  6,300 ft. so it is a good place to acclimatize before you start the trek. The drive takes you along 40 hairpin bends before you arrive at Jobra, the drive time is around 2 hrs. You will get to see the beauty of the Kullu Valley all along the ride. Jobra is the base for your trek to Hampta Pass. It is situated at an altitude of 9,200 ft and the trek to Chika will take you to an altitude of 10,100 ft.

Today is an easy trek along the banks of Rani Nallah through a mixed forest of pine, green maple, and birches. The trek initiates from Allain Guhugal Hydel Project junction and after you cross the main road, you follow the small path leading into a forest of Pine trees and other conifers like Maple, Oak, Deodar, and Toss. The slope that you will climb is not steep and is quite easy to climb. The surroundings are very beautiful, take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the environs before heading into a lush meadow strewn with small rocks all around. Twenty minutes into the trek and you will arrive at the bend that overlooks the meadow.

A little into the meadow the Rani Nallah comes into view, it flows through the middle of the meadow making it look like a picture right out of a fairytale. Walk through the meadow or climb up the hill on the left-hand side, either way, you will reach Chika at the end of the vast meadow. Climbing the hill and descending to Chika is the easier route and the campsite lies in a huge patch of a green clearing. Rani River flows through the middle, which makes the perfect setting to pitch up a tent. You may also spot horses grazing in the meadows that make a perfect setting for some Instagram-worthy photographs.

How-Hampta-Pass-Looks-On-Day-1

Chika To Balu Ka Ghera | Stay At A Beautiful Campsite

  • Altitude: 3,800 m/ 12,400 ft.
  • Trek Distance: 9 km | Duration: 5 to 6 hrs.
  • Altitude Gain: 700 m/ 2300 ft.
  • Moderate trail, gradual ascent.
  • A packed lunch will be provided.
  • Enough water on the way.
  • River crossing, boulder walk, and colorful tiny flowers on the way.

The next destination is Balu Ka Ghera. While the area is not visible from the Chika campsie, from the direction of the trail you can guess that it falls on the right-hand side. The trail will lead through boulders and rough terrain and the grade of the trek today is also an easy one and can be completed without any difficulty.

The entire stretch of the river's right bank is lined up with amazing dwarf Rhododendron trees. These trees will cover the lower and the central region and a cluster of silver birch trees cover up the upper region. Once you have reached the end of the silver birch trees, wait a moment and look back to marvel at the entire range of Dhauladhar snow-clad peaks in front of you. The view is very picturesque. You will reach a clear stream waterfall to the left at a distance. This is the best place to fill your bottles.

After crossing the waterfall, the next route is towards the river to your left. You can go to the other side only by crossing the river but you will have to wet your feet. Fair warning, the water is super cold and will prick your feet. You can also jump from one rock to another in the stream and get to the opposite side. You must have finished half of the day's trek when you enter Jwara. Jwara is a beautiful scenic sheltered valley; with huge snow-clad rocks at one side and the valley drops down to the river on the other side. You will feel like immersing yourself in the beauty of God's nature. You will find snow melting into the river and cattle grazing the land.

In front of you are snow-clad mountains. From here, the trail entwines along the riverside which will lead you to another rectangular valley. The path is covered with multi-colored flowers. The last of the tree lines vanish out of sight and are left behind. It will take another half an hour or so to reach the end of the valley, which is the finishing part of Jwara. After Jwara, the path is a slope covered with snow and rocks. You will spot a variety of purple, yellow, and pink wildflowers along the way. The terrain flattens out as you progress towards Balu Ka Ghera. You have to walk along a path of rocks and boulders and the rocks become more and more sparse as you progress towards Balu Ka Ghera.

Balu ka Ghera marks the end of the path, the name has nothing to do with the place. The place is covered with snow and greens whereas the name implies a mound of sand. But it is said that this place was formed with the sands and dust deposited by the river and hence the name. Balu ka Ghera campsite is a flat ground amidst the mountains that you will cross the next day to reach the pass. Balu ka Ghera is at an elevation of 12,400 ft.

Balu Ka Ghera To Shea Goru | Panoramic Mountain Views

  • Altitude: Hampta Pass - 4,300 m / 14,100 ft | Shea Goru- 3,900 m/ 12,900 ft
  • Trek Distance: 7 km | Duration: 10 hr
  • Altitude Gain: 520 m/ 1,700 ft.
  • No water point on the way (depends on the condition of snow)
  • First 1 hr gradual ascent then steep ascent till the pass
  • Packed lunch at the pass, enjoy the view of Indrasen Peak
  • Around 2 hrs of steep descent and 1 hr of flat walk from the pass to the campsite
  • The coldest part of the trek
  • Stay in a tent.

You can split the journey into two halves, a steady ascent on a moderately steep slope to Hampta Pass, hence a sharp descent to Shea Goru. The highest altitude will be achieved on this day at Hampta Pass (14,100 ft). The day starts by heading towards the mountains you spotted the previous day near Balu Ka Ghera. The trail is along the riverside. The view is amazing, tiny yellow and orange flowers along the river banks enhance its beauty.

The riverside trails take you further to the base followed by the actual climb to the Hampta pass. The trail fades out at some point so be mindful to not get lost. When trekking with us, our trek leaders will lead you through the right trail so no worries about wandering away. It will take an hour to reach here. Another hour of the walk will take you to the first plateau. In summer, the place is completely covered with thick fresh snow. Otherwise, it is just patches of snow everywhere. 

You will reach another plateau and onto a ridge. It will take another half an hour to reach the ridge's end. Then from the first ridge trek further up to the second ridge. Hampta Pass is just a few meters and a bend away from the second ridge. The climb to Hampta Pass is a vertical one and is a hard mount. It will take about 15 minutes to reach the pass. Yes, by the time you reach there, you will be extremely tired but the site which unfolds in front of you is supremely stunning. Enjoy for some time in the pass, relish the beauty around, have your lunch and then get ready for the next descent to Shea Goru.

The descent is trickier than the journey to the pass. The decline is so steep that you would not be able to locate the base of the mountain, not even by craning your neck. The best possible way to get down is either by sliding down the slope if there is snow or with the use of ropes for support. The route is a little meandering too. You will also spot Spiti from this point. In an hour and a half, a final u-turn will bring you to the base of the valley and the trail ahead will lead you to Shea Goru. The valley is secured by snow-clad mountains, and the side which is open is way to Shea Goru. The trek to Shea Goru is easy and on flat land. The river again flows to your right. Like Balu Ka Ghera, the Shea Goru campsite is also by the riverside. Set your camps on the grounds and retire for the night with a feeling of contentment at the heart.

Shea Goru To Chatru And Drive To Chandratal | Bask In the Serenity Of The Lake

  • Altitude: Chatru- 3,350 m/ 11,000 ft.
  • Trek Distance: 7 km | 5 hr.
  • Drive Distance: 50 km, 3-4 hr to Chandratal and back to the campsite, either on day 4 or day 5 (depending on road and weather conditions).
  • Altitude Loss: 550 m/ 1,900 ft.
  • Gradual descent on the moraine.
  • Start early in the morning.
  • 2 to 3 water sources on the way.
  • Hot lunch at campsite.

You will cover Shea Goru to Chatru by foot and it will take approx 5 hours of easy downhill trek. Shea Goru is placed at an altitude of 12,900ft and Chatru at 11, 000ft. It is a gentle trek downhill from Shea Goru. The trail here again is by the side of the river valley between mountain ranges. Some places can be a little slippery so be careful.

Chatru can be located at a distance. No vegetation can be seen in the barren mountains. The tricky part comes next. You will have to be careful as the trail might sometimes lead you to the edges of mountains and ridges. The route has slippery parts too. So, sure-footed and careful navigation is required to go further. Nevertheless, the trek is not as difficult as it sounds. You will for sure enjoy the sliding. Getting down the mountains will consume another two hours of your time. You will notice the Chandra River flowing below and a road that goes by its side. More than two Glaciers come next which are to be crossed. The other side of the Glacier is Chatru, the next camping zone. Choose a location that has the river running around.

Chatru is a magnificent camping site; it is a consensus of the three passes, Hampta, Rohtang, and Spiti. The location is just about another two hours away.

Chatru To Manali | Bid Adieu To The Mountains

  • Drive Distance: 65 km | Duration: 5-6 hr.
  • Breakfast at the campsite.
  • Lunch on the way (not included in cost).
  • Make your further travel plans from Manali.

It is time to say goodbye to the Spiti Valley and head back to Manali. A ride back from the Chatru campsite to Manali is scheduled for day 5. After this 5 hour journey full of mellow reminisces of the hills, you will be reaching Manali in the afternoon. An overnight journey after 06:00 pm to Delhi will hopefully work out best.

Chandratal Lake

A visit to Chandratal will be either on Day 4 or Day 5. You can hike up to the marvelous Chandratal Lake (known as the moon lake). Chandratal Lake is 50 km from Chatru campsite. The sheer blue color of the lake has an amazing effect on the surroundings. You can visit Chandratal only in the summer months if road and weather condition permits us. If not, you will have to drive directly from Chatru to Manali and skip Chandratal altogether.

How To Reach

It is essential for everyone to arrive at Manali (11:00 am). 

Once you have reached the assembly point of the trek in Manali, TTH will manage the rest of your travel arrangements, if you have opted for TTH's pick-up service, you can select this option during the booking process by adding it as an add-on.

Options to reach Manali: First, you can arrive at Chandigarh, Delhi, Pathankot, or Bhuntar airport. The journey from these locations to Manali is explained below.

1. Take overnight bus to Manali from Delhi or Chandigarh, taking a bus from Chandigarh is the most ideal option.

-Chandigarh to Manali Bus: 10 hours.

-Delhi to Manali Bus: 14 hours is hectic and takes more time.

We always recommend going for the govt. Buses over the private ones outside the bus station as based on the experience we have found that there are very high chances of delay involved with private buses. Also, govt. Buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Manali at 10 am.

2. You can take a flight to Bhuntar Airport (but we would not recommend it because of the high prices of the flight and very high chances of cancellations), Manali is just a couple of hours away and you can easily get a bus or a private taxi till there. If you do plan to come via Bhuntar, make sure to reach at least a day before the trek starts.

3. You can even come via train, Pathankot railway station is from where you can get direct buses to Kullu/Kasol that is 300 km from there and would take an overnight journey. Even in this case, reach a day before at Manali.

If you prefer to travel independently, you can either take a government bus or book a private cab. Your trek coordinator will provide guidance on how to arrange for the bus or cab booking.

 

The designated drop-off point is Manali Gov bus stand.

Reach Manali by 6:00 pm.

Please consider planning your subsequent travel arrangements after 8:00 pm.

It's highly advisable to keep a buffer day in your travel plan. If the buffer day is not needed, it can be used to explore Manali.

TTH offers comfortable transportation through Tempo Traveler, Bolero, or equivalent vehicles. If you wish to upgrade your mode of transportation, please contact your trek coordinator for further assistance.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek.
