Everything about Hampta Pass – The Nature’s Cocktail!
Trekkers trek on various terrains and would shift seasons as well. Would put in a lot of effort in choosing the right destination to capture the best of the best. Every trekker has got his own choice of scenery to trek on it may be a desert trek, winter trek, valley trek, summer trek, river trek and so on. Each trek is on a complete contrast to others in terms of location, trails, altitude, season, vegetation and scenery. But, there is one hidden wonderland that compiles all the contrasts into it. Best described as nature’s cocktail!. It’s none other than the Hampta pass trek. The Hampta pass lies at an altitude of 4270m on the pir panjal range in the Himalayas. This small corridor between Lahoul’s Chandra valley and Kullu valley is loaded with pristine waterfalls, hanging glaciers, pinewood, rhododendron forests, open meadows, small lakes, vertical rocks walls and peaks rising to a 600mts. Foster the beauty of the picturesque scenery that terrifically changes throughout this trek. Hampta pass trek isn’t a very long trek. In the span of 4-5 days it provides you with an astounding kaleidoscopic view of scenic substitutes. This trek begins at Kullu valley and crosses over through the Hampta pass into the drier region of Lahaul. The Hampta pass trek climbs right out of Manali up to a 9000ft and reaches Jobra which houses the most statuesque maple forest of the country. Let the hardwood forest breach your soul and conquer you. Not for a long time you are conquered by the maples, where right next we have the open grasslands at Chika inviting you with their supreme vibrancy. Drink the sound of the streams as you get painted by the blooms of the Jwara meadows, on your walk through this stunning valley and camp at Balu Ka Ghera that touches the snowline of the Hampta pass. A trek along the rivers and the sheeps on the grasslands will have their beautiful stories to share with you.
Once on to the Hampta pass and the transition that dwells on Spiti valley makes for a drastic contrast.
Scenic Valley, Marvellous Mountain ranges, Blushing blooms, lush green grasslands, Crystal clear water, Echoing rivers, mesmerizing maples, glazing snow and the golden desert. All in one expedition. The best season to plan for the Hampta trek is during the months from June – September as the weather favors high altitude trekking. However other months are not to be ignored as the Hampta pass expresses a fairly good climate all year round, but unpredictable weather changes can make the situation worse.
