Enjoy your holidays with outstanding experience in Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Hamta Pass + Chandra Taal Lake- One of the exciting trips in the lap of Himalayas Hampta Pass trek 4.5


Hamta Pass (14100 ft) is a 4 day trek which connects Beas Valley (Kullu/HP) to the Chandra Valley (Lahaul Spiti) over PirPanjal Range. Hamta Pass trek offers a perfect upgradation choice for weekend trekkers who want to experience high altitude trekking. It’s a 37 Km trek from Zobra to Chatru, Both Zobra and Chatru are connected to road heads. Most Trekkers combine Chandertaal lake with Hamta pass by adding one more day to the plan. Till June pass is covered with snow and descend to the other side could be dangerous, after September chances of fresh snowfall increases. Hence July, August and September is the best time for Hamta Pass trek.

Hamta Pass expedition begins from the famous hill station of Manali in Himachal Pradesh. Your first stop will be Chika valley, while travelling from Manali to Chika where you will see evergreen forests of deodars, spruces and fir also numerous Himalayan Villages with wooden houses having slate roofs.

Second phase of Hamta Pass trekking becomes more challenging due to quick altitude gain, Also it is among the prettiest. Here you will encounter slopes covered with different species of colourful wild flowers. On the way, you will cross many little streams until you reach BalukaGhera. Its said that during winters brown bears descend from higher elevations to hibernate in BalukaGhera.

The third part of the expedition involves crossing of the Hamta Pass towards the Chandra Valley. It is also a natural breeding ground for colourful flowers as well as for animals that graze its lush grass during summers. You may also be able to see some snow here as its elevation is quite high, and it experiences cool weather throughout the year. After Passing Hamta Pass you will walk on a comparatively flatter terrain.

On fourth day we trek from Siagoru towards Chatru. This phase of the trail is half easy and half difficult as you cross steep elevations. After reaching at Chatru you can either take transfer to Manali on the same day or move to a serene alpine lake called Chandertaal and reach Manali on next day.

In-case you decide to extend your trip to include Chandertaal, consider starting early from Chandertaal to Manali as there are around 50+ streams on the way. Water Level on these streams increase as the day progresses due to melting glaciers. Visit the Lake on the day of arrival, soak in the views and start early for Manali on Day5.
