Hamta Pass lies at an altitude of 4270 meters on the Pir Panjal range in the Himalayas. It is a small corridor between Chandra Valley of Lahul and Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh. The trek starts from Hamta Village which is just few kilometers from Manali that takes about 02 hours drive only. This pass is frequently used by shepherds of lower Himalayan region, seeking for high altitude grassland in the dry cold desert of Lahaul during summer time. Numbers of wild flowers and herbs grow at the altitude between 3000 to 3800 meters. Vertical rock walls, waterfalls, hanging glaciers, pinewoods, rhododendron forests, open meadows, tiny lakes and peaks rising above 6000 meters are the main characteristics of this trek. This trek needs experienced guides to help navigate across glaciers, fast-flowing rivers and a challenging terrain. Beyond Hamta pass, trekkers can choose to extend their trek towards the beautiful Chandertal Lake. The trek ends at Chatru, a small summer settlement earlier started for the laborers, machine operators and locals travelling from Kaza to Manali and now it caters tourists too. If you are looking for a short trek with two different landscapes, this is the perfect choice.
