Hampta Pass to ChandraTaal Trek

Hampta, Himachal Pradesh
5 Days4 Nights

Event Overview

Kullu and Lahual are two adjoining districts and are separated by the formidable Rohtang La. Rohtang La is snow bound from October to June. Bothe the valleys are geographically quite different. The Kullu/Manali valleys are green with thick forest cover and heavy rains. However, Lahaul is in a rain-shadow area with partial Trans-Himalayan barrenness. The trail to Chandertaal over Hampta Pass combines both these areas gives a wonderful walk with two completely different terrains to enjoy.

Schedule

Day 1 - Manali – Sethan – Chikka - Baloo ka Ghera
  • The participants are requested to gather at our base camp in Sethan. You can either hike to Sethan from Manali or drive. We can make prior arrangements for the guests to be driven to Sethan on notice (choose from add ons) After refreshments and a de-brief, we will start the trek. The trail alternates between thick forests and open grounds to Chikka. The trek crosses many glacial streams over improvised wooden bridges. Beautiful forested peaks are visible from Chikka after 3 or 4 hrs of scrambling. From here, we will get an excellent view of Deo Tibba and Indrasan group of peaks. When we arrive at Chikka, we will break for lunch and head on to Baloo ka Ghera. The trail continues to the alpine meadows which are full of interesting flora, crossing stream at Juara, glacial features of the surrounding mountains can be seen along the way. Bhalu ka Ghera, also known as the Bear’s Circle, is the place where brown bears are said to hibernate during winters and during the right time of the year, several species of wild flowers can be seen. It is a beautiful camping spot and we will camp here for the night.
Day 2 - Bhalu ka Ghera - Hampta pass (4298 mts) – Shiya Goru (3597 mts)
  • Start the day early by climbing up for about 2 km up to the Hampta pass (4270 mts) while walking on the snowfields. It is now time to get shutter happy with your camera. The final ridge is a little steep to climb and when snow-bound you will you will have to cut steps in the ice up the pass. The view from here is jaw dropping. The peaks of in Lahaul, particularly in the Kulti valley and of the Chandrabhaga group, are seen as a huge cluster, with peak of Mulkila IV raising its head above them. From top of the pass you can see the majestic Mt. Deo Tibba (6001 m), Indrasan (6221 m) and the mighty Greater Himalayan and Pir Panjal Range. A short descent leads to the campsite at Shiya Goru.We will camp in a beautiful meadow by the stream.
