Hampta Pass Trek is a great initiation to Himalayan trekking. The trail to Hampta Pass combines 2 different side of the Himachal for you. Kullu and Lahaul are two adjoining districts and are separated by the formidable Hampta pass which is snowbound from October to June. Both 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.

Day 03: Bhalu Ka Ghera – Hampta Pass (4270 m) – Bhalu Ka Ghera (7-8 hours)

Today is when you feel the trek the most, it's going to be a long day. We start early (at around 7 am) and trek for 4-5 hours before we reach Hampta Pass. Today is also the day you'll use your cameras the most, keep extra battery in handy. The final ridge during the trek is a little steep accent. When snow-bound you will have to cut steps in the ice and be very sure footed. All this hard is rewarding, views from here are breath taking.
