Trekking at Manali, Hampta Pass By Aqua Terra Adventures



Description

A short trek which leads from the lush greens of the Kullu valley to the barren landscape of the Chandra valley. The trail goes right up to the base of the high mountains of Deotibba and Indrasan (both 6000m plus) peaks and crosses over at the Hampta Pass.


Itinerary

  • Day 1:

    Drive Delhi to Manali (2050m) 10-11 hrs.

  • Day 2:

    Prini to Panduropa (2800m) 4-5 hrs. From the village of Prini it is all the way uphill to the village of Saythen. There are fine views down the Kullu valley. After Saythen the trail levels out and enters the narrow forested valley.

  • Day 3:

    Panduropa to Chikha (3270m) 4-5 hrs. Now we are in the high country above the tree line. We cross several side streams before descending to the Hampta river which usually has a snow bridge or there would be log to cross set by the shepherds. We camp at the beautiful meadow dotted by colourful alpine flowers.

    Chikha to Valu ka Ghar (3700m) 3-4 hrs A short day we camp just before the pass.

  • Day 5:

    Valu ka Ghar to Hampta Pass (4270m) to Siliguri (3750m) 6-7 hrs A steep climb over tscree slopes and boulder fields leads us to the Hampta Pass which offers beautiful views of Deo Tibba and Indrasan ( both 6000m peaks). A steep descent on the rocky slopes which could be quite dangerous at some points brings us to our campsite at Silliguri.

  • Day 6:

    Siliguri to Chatru (3360m) 3-4 hrs A couple of river crossings and a steep descent all the way brings us to a small settlement of Chattru on the banks of the Chandra river. Overnight camp.
