What makes Hampta Pass a terrific crossover trek

Hampta Pass is an unusual, special pass. It climbs out of lush green valleys of Kullu through a narrow gorge-like valley to an overhang high in the mountains. The overhang you stand on is a window to a different world altogether: the deserts of Lahual. From the pass, you see the Lahual valley in one wide panoramic sweep.

    1. Hi Smitha, the winter snow starts coming in by October on the Hampta Pass trek. So we can’t run the trek in October. We close our batches early in September. After that, we open up our Roopkund and Rupin Pass treks. If you want to trek in October, then go for Roopkund, or perhaps the Kuari Pass or Sandakphu treks.
