Challenging trek requiring endurance fitness and a positive attitude

Hampta Pass is an ancient trade route in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas, between the Chandra Valley in Lahaul and the Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh, India. Traders used the pass to transport wool, silk, spices, and tea. The Pass is mentioned in the ancient Hindu epic, the Mahabharata. According to legend it was the route the Pandavas, five legendary brothers, took to reach heaven.

Besides breathtaking alpine scenery, this trek offers a close view of Mt. Deo Tibba (6001m) and Mt. Indrasan (6221m).

At an altitude of 4200m, Hampta Pass is one of those rare, dramatic pass crossings in the Himalayas with the lush green valley of Kullu — with forests, grasslands, and flowers blooming beside the trail. On the other is the almost arid, stark landscape of Lahaul.

This celebratory trek is the third in a trilogy of high-altitude adventures Back Track has led in recent years in the Indian State of Himachal Pradesh – an adventure wonderland!
