Breathtaking beauty with the strong flavour of adventure is the line which completely defines Hampta Pass trek. Greenery, mountains, rivers make it a perfect spot to enjoy and to forget the miseries of busy city life.

We started for this trek from Manali. At Manali, we started with some Bunjee jumping and started the trek the next day. Lush green forests of rhododendron and oak greeted us at the start of this trek and we camped at a number of places like Chatru and Balu ka Ghera. The trek was not too difficult but did have some difficult weather conditions in between. However, our organising team was totally ready with all the necessary arrangements. They even had oxygen cylinders in case anyone experienced difficulties at such altitudes. We witnessed some of the best panoramic views of Himalayan ranges from here. We had fun and even made some new friends. The crescent-shaped Chandratal Lake was the final destination of this trip which was also splendid. A highly recommended trip which you can opt with your close bunch of friends. I and my friends had great fun.
