Hamta pass trek with Chandrataal
There are very few treks which can offer almost everything that one wishes to see on an Himalayan trek- incredible views of glacial valleys, thick pine forest, open meadows, gushing Himalayan streams, and an adventurous crossing of a high altitude pass. Hampta pass trek connects the two famous and beautiful valleys of Kullu and Lahaul.
On one side are the absolutely lush green valleys of Kullu & Manali and on the other is the semi-arid region of the Lahaul valley. This wonderful trail is meant for everyone, right from adventurous first timers to seasoned hikers. The pass itself is very inviting and poses fewer challenges compared to some of its brethren, but it is in no way a cakewalk.
Chandra Taal, is a high altitude alpine lake & a paradise for mountain lover’s. It is situated at an altitude of about 14000 feet in the Himalayas. Mountains of scree overlook the lake on one side, and a magnificent cirque presents a stunning view on the other.
