Hampta Pass Trek
Barlacha La to Chandratal Trek
Girivihar has announced it High Altitude trek for 2023 to Hampta Pass from the 12 August to 19 August.
Hampta Pass is a beautiful crossover trek that spreads across the lush green valleys of Kullu-Manali to the arid and barren landscapes of Chandra Valley in Lahaul. This trek presents the amalgamation of distinct landscapes and cultures, which is a unique experience in itself. The trek entwines along rocky paths, grasslands, gushing streams, cascading waterfalls, hanging glaciers, and the beautiful crescent-shaped emerald lake ‘Chandratal’. Get to witness the confluence of three passes, Hampta Pass, Rohtang Pass, and Spiti, which is quite a surreal experience and not to mention a close encounter with the Buddhist culture and the lifestyle in the remote Himalayan villages. The inhabitants of Sethan are originally migrants from Tibet and Spiti Valley and you will get to observe their distinct culture and traditions.
Girivihar has announced its High Altitude Trek for 2023 from Baralacha Pass to Chandratal from 19 August to 26 August. This is a difficult trek and will require high endurance and experience.
This trek is open for first timers as well as veterans. Just ensure that you are excited about the trip and are in good physical shape (comfortable walking for 4-5 hours in a day). However, it would be wise to discuss it with one of our Trip Leaders before booking. Chandra Tal, means ‘Lake of the Moon’, is a beautiful glacial lake located between the Rohtang and Kunzam passes at an altitude of 14,100ft (4300m). The scenic trek from Bara lacha la to Chandra Tal is one of the best lesser-known trek. This trek gave you a chance to explore wildlife & Camping on the shores of the beautiful lake which is much bigger and deeper than what it appears to be. Admire and photograph the stunning beauty of the Bara-lacha la glacier which is the source of the Chandra River. The Bara-lacha la Pass is situated at 4950m/16240ft between the Leh-Manali highway.
