Hampta Pass Trek
Trek Highlights

This is a moderate trek of five days that begins from close to Manali in the Kullu Valley and ends in Lahaul and the Chandra Valley. The trek is also possible in the Monsoons when the wild flowers are in bloom and can be best appreciated.

The inhabitants of Lahaul are Buddhists and follow the Dalai Lama. The language spoken is a dialect of Tibetan. This beautiful trek can be combined with other treks that finish in Ladakh or Spiti or be combined with a Rafting trip on the Chandra River.
