The Hampta Pass trek in Himachal Pradesh embodies different shades of nature to provide a contrasting landscape that consists of green canopied valleys on one side and barren earthly mountains on the other hand. A grassland with spring flowers blooming mirrored by a stark scenery consisting of jagged terrains is something that you only get to see on the Hampta Pass trek.

Hampta Pass does not pose much of a safety challenge. It is considered to be a pretty safe trek as compared to the other high-altitude treks but at the same time although Hampta pass trek is considered safe, one must be careful around the stream crossings and the descent from the pass down to Sia Goru campsite.

The total time taken to complete this trek is usually around five days, covering a 26 Kilometers stretch of land where you gain an altitude of 14,100ft.

Itinerary (Manali-Manali)

1st Day : Manali Arrival | Drive to Jobra (45 mins drive) | Trek to Chika (2 Kilometers Trek)

  • The group will assemble at the pick-up point by 11:00 AM where a briefing session by the trek leader sharing all the necessary details about the trek would be provided. After which, we’ll head towards Jobra which is the basecamp for the Hampta Pass trek and is located at an altitude of 9,379 ft.
  • The drive from Manali though has many hairpin bends in the road make up for a scenic drive due to the panoramic view of Kullu Valley that you get to glimpse at.
  • Traversing through thick forests consisting of pine, maple and silver birch trees, we will reach Jobra. After relaxing for a while, we'll start our trek towards Chika. The sight that you get to witness while trekking is serene and refreshing. From lush green forests consisting of maple, oak, and deodar trees to the stream of Rani Nallah flowing through meadows, the landscape that the trekking trail provides is breathtaking, to say the least.
  • We will set up camp in Chika. With its vast tapestry of greenery and open skies above, it is perfect for spending peaceful moments.
  • Dinner will be served in the evening followed by an overnight stay in Chika.
*The pick-up point would be Manali Mall Road (tentative). If you arrive in Manali, one day before, it would help your body adapt better to the altitude and weather.

2nd Day : Chika to Balu Ka Ghera Trek (8.5 Kilometers, 6 hours)

  • After early morning breakfast, we will head towards Balu Ka Ghera. Balu translates to sand and the trail lives up to the name as the short meadow walk soon gives way to boulders and loose rocks making this part of trek fall into moderate category.
  • The beauty of this trek is that you get to witness the magic of nature in the form of beautiful landscapes. On one hand, you get the flowing Jwara river seemingly following your footsteps, while the mighty Dhauladhar ranges beckon you closer. A stream of a waterfall would be waiting amidst the green canopies.
  • The terrain starts to flatten as you reach the initial region of Balu ka Ghera which is known as Chota Balu ka Ghera. As you keep walking, the terrain will start to get rugged again with the rocks being far apart making it tricky to traverse through.
  • We will reach Balu Ka Ghera soon where we will set camp among the mountains beyond which the Hampta pass awaits us. In the evening, we will have dinner and spend a night under the starry skies.

3rd Day : Balu Ka Ghera to Siagoru Trek via Hampta Pass (7 Kilometers, 9 hours)

  • After breakfast, we will head towards our next campsite which is Sia goru. The entire trail is made up of boulders and hence the descent is trickier which is why we need to be careful.
  • En-route, we will be traversing through Hampta Pass which is a beautiful trail with a river flowing through it. Blooming flowers of different colors of rainbow are perched at the bank making it a sight to behold. You will also get to see the Deo Tibba peak beckoning you closer.
  • After enjoying the view at Hampta Pass, we will start our descent. The downhill trail consists of slippery soil and loose stones. A trail with twists and turns will lead you to the valley below and after walking for a while, you will finally reach the base. The opening that reveals itself leads you to Sia Goru where we will set camp for the night and spend the rest of the day at leisure..
  • Dinner will be served in the evening followed by an overnight stay in Sia Goru.

4th Day : Siagoru to Chatru Trek (7 Kilometers, 5 hours) | Chatru to Chandratal Drive and Back

  • After early morning breakfast we will start our downhill trek towards Chatru. The vast land lacks vegetation but the tricky slopes give you the adrenaline rush that you might be craving for. The descent is tricky so you might have to stay extra vigilant.
  • Once we reach Chatru, we'll drive towards Chandratal which is a beautiful lake located 45 kilometers away from the campsite. However, the drive would only be possible if the weather permits as the harsh weather conditions could be a hindrance.
  • After relishing in the beauty of nature and a short sightseeing tour, we'll head back to Chatru where we will set up base camp.
  • Dinner will be served in the evening followed by an overnight stay in Chatru

5th Day : Drive from Chatru to Manali | Tour Ends

  • After early morning tea and breakfast, we will start our return journey and drive from Chatru to Manali. The drive will allow you to get a glimpse of the Rohtang Pass as it falls on this route. The stunning landscape makes this drive extremely rewarding.
