Hampta Pass Trek
The Hampta Pass Trek takes the enthusiastic expeditors over the majestic foothills of the Himalaya, the Pir Panjal Range, crossing at Hampta Pass (4,268 m) to reach finally at the remote Lahaul. Lahaul is an isolated district of Himachal Pradesh lying grandly amongst the Himalaya peaks. It had been the traditional alternative route between Lahaul and Kullu Valley before the road was made over Rohtang Pass.
The Hampta Pass trek takes one through the mighty fields of Oak, Rhodo, Pine and the Hampta River that stand on the either side of the Hampta Mountain. This stands as a bridge for the villagers of Hampta to the Lahaul Spiti valley. Trekking at Hampta pass ranges begins at Prini village and goes uphill to bringa change of landscapes on the way between the two valleys namely Lahaul and Kullu. The Lahaul Valley is full of sand and rocks and on the other hand the Kullu Valley is plush with fresh greenery all around its ranges. The natural beauty here takes a new shape every day and this is the reason the trekkers find themselves at a new place whenever they make their start.
