But before you enter the grandeur of beautiful landscapes, you need to arrive in Manali, the first point of the trek. Whereas, the Hampta Pass Trekking starts from Jobra, which is a driveway away from Manali. Begin your Hampta Pass Trek itinerary, hiking through the maple and pine trees with the Rani river flowing along your side. And as you ascend on the hampta pass altitude, you have already crossed two wooden bridges and a soft patch of forest covering the walnut and oak trees.

Fun Fact: The Hampta Pass is excellent for nature lovers & photographers. As the Hampta pass trek route treats you with a unique variety of exotic mountain wildflowers, that'll hold you in awe throughout the journey.

After you spend overnight camping at Chika, we'll continue our Hampta Pass Trek package to Balu Ka Ghera. It is a short meadow hike followed by a boulder section for a couple of hours, leading to a route on loose rocks to the campsite. But before you pitch the camps for day 2 of Hampta Pass night, enjoy the beautiful sunset behind the Hanuman Tibba peak. Later, have some rest as you'll be needing it to achieve the Hampta Pass height the following day.

On the 3rd day of the trek, pay extra attention to your hampta pass trek guide. As you'll be walking in the rockfall-prone area. After an hour you reach a plateau that gives the front view of the Deo Tibba peak. The hampta pass height in feet is roughly 14,000 ft and you can reach it after a 20 min vertical climb to the pass. Although it's the most challenging part in the entire Manali to Hampta Pass distance, it's also the most rewarding one. Get the bird-eye views of Kullu and Lahaul valley, with Deo Tibba peak standing in front. It's worth our hampta pass trek budget and TBH it's even more.

Once done, descend to a zig-zag path until you hit down the valley. After an hour you hit the base of the valley, pitch the tents and retire for the day. The following day, descend to Jobra from Balu Ka Ghera post breakfast and drive back to Manali. Thus, bidding goodbye to the scenic valley, marking the end of this trek.
