Himachal Pradesh is beyond doubt one of the most popular destinations in India. It is well known for its quaint and picturesque hill-towns, and also for the many thrilling Himalayan Treks that it has on offer for the adventure seekers. Hampta Pass is an unusual, special pass. It climbs out of lush green valleys of Kullu to a perpendicular overhang, high in the mountains. The overhang you stand on is almost like a balcony view to a different world below ; the deserts of Lahaul. From the pass, you see the Lahaul valley in one wide panoramic sweep. It is one the most dramatic twists in landscape you'll see. Also you will be visiting the absolutely scenic Chandratal lake whose beauty will definitely leave you awestruck. According to the reports from the Indian Meteorological Department, the weather in 2019 is the most favorable for trekking in the Himalayas. We don't think you would want to miss this opportunity to experience the Himalayas at its best. So come join us and book your seats now!
