About the event

Day 1: Manali to Chika Via Jobra

Today we will drive to Jobra and then start our trek to Chika. Hampta Pass trek starts from the Allain Guhugal Hydel Project site. Get down from the vehicle at the project site & across the main road. Take the narrow trail that leads to the forest of pine trees. A variety of trees like maple, deodar, toss, and oak can also be spotted on this trail. Cross the Rani Nallah by the wooden bridge & from here the trail is on the right of Rani nallah. Overnight Stay in Tent.

Day 2: Trek from Chika to Balu-Ka-Gera 9 KM Trek

After early breakfast, we will start our trek to Balu-Ka-Gera. The trail stays on the true right of the river for the most part of the day. The initial climb is through boulders. Today we will walk along the Rani River into a valley sprinkled with little multi-colored flowers which are as beautiful as the Valley of flowers. The site is windy which makes the temperature even lower than actual. Pitch your tents and camp at Balu Ka Gera, 11,000 feet above sea level.

Day 3: Trek from Balu-Ka-Gera to Sheagoru via Hampta Pass 8 KM Trek

Today, after early breakfast we will start ascending. The weather can be very unpredictable here. The trek begins by surrounding of the pool of water to enter the partially dried-up glacial river bed. The climb is vigorous all the way up to the Hampta pass. Walk at a steady pace with minimum breaks. Once you cross the pass you enter the Lahaul region & one can feel the change in the scenery. The trail is completely downhill from the Pass. After some walking, we can see the campsite of Shea Goru far in the distance. The last few km are mostly flat. Shea Goru means “Cold Street” and is really very cold here. This is the most beautiful campsite on the Hampta Pass trek. Overnight Stay in Tent.

Day 4: Shea Goru to Chatru/ Visit Chandra Tal - 4 hours trek (7 KM)

After breakfast, start hiking. Almost half of the trek is easy & full of descent. After descending we can see the large valley of the river Chandra. Reach Chhatru which is the road head. Overnight Stay in Tent.

Day 5: Drive from Chattru to Manali 80 KM Drive

After early breakfast, we will leave the campsite to avoid the traffic jam at Rohtang Pass. Reach Manali by 5 PM Approx. And here ends the Hampta Pass Trek with amazing memories.
