About Hampta Pass trek

Hamta is the eastern –most pass on the Pir Panjal range which divides the valleys of Lahul ,Spiti and Kullu. This trek route is the shortest line between the Chandra and Beas rivers and was the favoured route before the road over the Rohtang Pass was constructed.

Trek commences at Sethan Village, 8 kms above Prini on the left bank of the Beas. Trek goes upstreams on the left bank of the Alain stream streams northwards, past Kharmdiari (3400m), Pandu ropa, Jobri, crosses over to the right bank; a gentle ascending walk of an hour ends at the first days camp site- Chikka(3500m.). A pleasant meadow between high bluffs, just above the tree line: common to see a couple of gujjar encampments there.

On day 2 one continues towards north- east, the ascent becoming steeper. After two hours one comes to the huge pasture of Juara thatch, carpeted with ferns and alpine flowers, then Balu ka ghera a massive, circular depression where the alain forms a lake. Trek circles the lake, climbs a 200 m, rockfall and ends at a shelf; this is Ratan Thali the camp site. (3900m.). In the north are high 6000m.+ peaks- Indrasan, Dev Tibba,and Inder Kila – from which hang a myriad of glaciers. From one of these the Alain is born.

On day 3 a stiff one hour climb brings one to the Hamta pass. The view of the north – Lahul and Spiti is amazing 2000 feet straight below is the Hamta stream, emerging from the Hamta glacier to the east and flowing north wards to the Chandra valley.

Descent is initially very steep, but then it is a lovely walk of about three hours on the alpine grasslands on right bank of Hampta to the Chandera River. Hamta meets the Chandra 3 kms. Above the tiny hamlet of Chatru, which is on the main highway connecting Manali and Kaza.
