  • June to Early July:
  • This period is perfect for enjoying blooming flowers and lush greenery. The weather is generally stable, providing clear views of the surrounding landscapes.
  • Mid-July to August:
  • While the monsoon season brings vibrant flora, it poses risks like heavy rainfall and landslides, making the trek more challenging and potentially hazardous.
  • September
  • is an excellent time to trek as the monsoon subsides, leaving behind refreshed greenery and clear skies. The weather is cool and comfortable, offering spectacular views without the extreme cold of winter.

After Breakfast, we'll begin our hike from Jobra to Balu Ka Ghera (named because it's the territory of bears) since bears hibernate there in winter. The trek will again be filled with challenges and picturesque scenes as we cross different rivers and streams and experience nature's blossoms. Thus, it will be best to leave the climax scene to the trekkers only.

On day 3 of the Hampta Pass Trek, we might leave the campsite by 7am because the trek ahead is long and tedious. It will be a very adventurous day, and we can see the variety of flowers on the whole trail. We'll go from Balu ka Ghera to Shea Goru at 12,900 feet. It'll take approximately 4-5 hours to succeed at Hampta Pass (14,000 feet) and from there, another few hours to descend to Shea Goru.
