Hampta Pass Trek With Chandratal Lake

Hampta pass connects the valleys of Lahaul and Kullu, each with their own distinct cultures and terrain.

Whereas, Kullu is a Hindu influenced valley with beautiful and ancient temples scattered throughout, and lush greenery and forest cover serving as their backdrop. This unique trek allows us a glimpse of both sides, as well as a chance to visit the beautiful Chandertal Lake, named after the Moon and its crescent shape, and located at a height of over 4000 meters.
