Hampta Pass in Himachal Pradesh is a dramatic crossover trek. It is one of those rare, dramatic pass crossings lying in the Himalayas.
On one side of the trail is the lush green valley of Kullu, with forests and grasslands. On the other side lies the almost arid, stark landscape of Lahaul, with barren mountains deprived of vegetation.

A beautiful view of blooming flowers accompanies you through a substantial part of the trail. Their fresh smell keeps you energized throughout. A narrow green valley protected by snow-covered mountains is a bonus!


To construct a sufficient core strength, one will need planks, crunches, Russian twists, bicycle kicks, etc. Hampta Pass does not pose much of a safety challenge. It is considered to be a pretty safe trek as compared to the other high-altitude treks. Although Hampta pass trek is considered safe, one must be careful around the stream crossings and the descent from the pass down to Shea Goru campsite.

The trek takes you to a total height of around 14,000 ft. When you reach Jobra (which is at 9,300 ft approximately), you plan your trip further up to Shea Goru.

Organising treks is not an easy task given such geographic and weather conditions. I had an awesome trip to Hamta Pass on 23 June 2018 with JustWravel where everything was well conducted.Group leader(Nishant) was great in connecting strangers as a team. Every day, we had lots of fun in evenings after finishing trek when we met in our dining hall camp for supper and dinner.

Had been to Hampta pass trek and Chandratal lake (ex-Manali) with JustWravel during the long weekend of Dusshera. The overall experience, right from picking us up from Manali bus stop till our journey ended, was commendable. I, along my friend, were supposed to manage to reach from private to government bus stop on our own but as soon as we reached manali, we got a call that a cab had been arranged for our pick up from private bus stop itself. That was just the beginning and one such example of "customer delight" experience. Throughout the trek, our group coordinator as well as the trek guide kept extending their support to us. The hospitality, I experienced there, has indeed set a benchmark. I will highly recommend the travel enthusiasts to go with JustWravel atleast once in future.

THINGS TO CARRY

Backpack (Min 55 Ltrs with rain cover): It is important that you pick a good quality backpack with a comfortable fit and straps that won’t give you shoulder pain. You can check out your nearest Decathlon store for a good trekking backpack.

Day backpack (20 – 30 Ltrs): When you head towards the summit, you are required to carry only a few necessary items and for that you need a day backpack as you will leave your bigger one on the campsite. 

Floaters or Sandals: Although the entire trek requires a good quality shoe, you still need to let your feet breathe to avoid chafing and blisters. When you are at the camp, a good pair of sandals and floaters will help you to move freely.

Trekking Shoes: A good trekking shoe is one that is comfortable, provides ankle support and has a good grip as well. They shouldn’t be chunky, instead they should be lightweight and sturdy.

3 Quick Dry Tees: It’s important that you keep at least three pairs of quick dry tees so that you can wash them in between stops for proper hygiene. 

2 Track Pants: A good pair of track pants made of polyester will let your skin breathe. They’re lightweight, dry easily and are comfortable to walk around in. You can easily avoid chafing and rashes by investing in a good pair of track pants.

3 Pair of Cotton Socks: Cotton socks are extremely comfortable to move around in and are lightweight as well which is why you can always count on a good pair of cotton socks while trekking. However, keep in mind to change them and avoid wearing them when they are wet.

1 Pair of Woolen Socks: A good pair of woolen socks, especially merino, are comfortable, limit odors and provide adequate insulation from the cold so you can wear them at night.

1 Poncho: A poncho is basically an evolved form of a rain coat that provides coverage to your body as well as your bag and ensures total water protection from rains. 

1 Heavy Jacket: It’s emphasized that you need to carry proper layers so you can avoid getting cold which is why you need to carry a heavy jacket that you can put on over your other clothes.

1 Pair of Thermal: Thermal is a piece of garment that helps in keeping your body warm in cold temperatures. It is a necessary item that you need when going on a high altitude trek.

Quick-dry towel: A quick dry towel will help in maintaining proper hygiene. It’s necessary that it dries quickly because wet fabric will only increase the chance of bacterial growth.

Windproof Jacket: As you ascend towards high altitude, you get hit by chilly winds and a windbreaker jacket is designed to resist them. They are lightweight and are made of synthetic fibers. 

Woolen Cap: A woolen cap will help prevent cold when you ascend to high altitude. You can also cover your ears to avoid any pain and discomfort you might face in them when going on high altitudes. 

Gloves: Insulated gloves help in maintaining proper body heat in your hands and also provide better grasp on trekking poles.

Sun Cap: A lightweight sun cap with side flaps is perfect to keep your head cool and avoid sunburns on a sunny day. 

1 Scarf or Balaclava: Along with sun rays and chilly winds, you also get hit by dirt and grime during treks which is why it's important to carry a scarf or balaclava so you can cover your face when needed.

Lip Balm: Your lips can become chapped due to the harsh cold winds so it's important to keep them moisturized.

Cold Cream & SunScreen (SPF 40+): In order to avoid sunburns and chafing, you need to put on sunscreen as well as cold cream.

Antibacterial powder: To avoid rashes that develop from bacterial infestation in your armpits and other parts of your body.

Water Bottle 1 Lt.: Hydration is extremely important when it comes to trekking. To carry a water bottle that you can refill with Himalayan water is a must.

Headlamp or torch: You can’t rely on moonlight when you are in the mountains. A torch or even a headlamp with a fresh pair of batteries is always a good idea to bring along.

Bag for all your Toiletries: A bag with all your essentials including napkins, toothpaste, sanitizers, paper soap etc should be carried in a ziplock bag. 

Personal Basic Medical Kit: A few cuts and bruises are almost inevitable when you are on a trek so carrying a medical kit with bandages, dettol etc is necessary.

Dark Sunglasses / People who use spectacles (Use Photochromic glasses instead of contact lenses): Photochromatic glasses are specs that are designed to transform into anti glare shades depending upon the exposure of the sun. They are good when it comes to eye protection but one can also opt for clip on glasses etc.

Trekking Pole: Trekking pole assists in more than one way. It saves energy while also providing stability and helps you to maintain proper balance.

Extra Polythene: In case your clothes get wet or your garments don’t dry, you can carry them in a polythene. However, make sure that all the plastic that you are carrying into the woods leaves with you. Don’t litter in the mountains. 

Camera: This should be obvious. To make sure that you get to capture all great moments from your trek.. Make sure that you have enough storage and some extra batteries as well.
