    If you want to climb the Himalayas with wonders at every step, I would suggest the Hampta Pass Chandratal trek to you. To me and our group, it was the best so far. Not so much difficult, beautiful views of the pass and the Chandratal lake, lovely trekking-mates and such a high experienced facilitating team kept me amazed and excited throughout the trek.

    One of the best experiences that I have had since I came to India. The trek through high altitude passes may have you short of breath but the amazing view can completely take your breath away. The temples are a must see in this place! The jeep ride is fun as the terrians can get rugged.

    If you are looking towards exploring the beauty if the Himalayas and also enjoy the thrills of trek, but with moderate amount of challenges, I would suggest this Hampta Pass Chandratal Trek for you. I did it last year with 3 of my colleagues and few other members. Everything on the way was so refreshing and awesome.

    8 days and the 7 nights of this trek was one of the best trekking expereince I had so far. This was my first trek in Himachal as i had done trekking mostly in sikkim and maharashtra and i always had suggestions to try trekking in Himachal so i finally selected this trek to experience trekking in this place. And it was awesome.It was totally worth of the money and time most importantly. Now i am planning on coming to the Himachals again.

    We completed this exciting and adventurous trek during last year September. Though for most of the group members it was a moderate level trek, I found it a bit challenging as this was my first time in high altitude trek. But then the motivation of the group members and the suggestions and support of our trek organisers made this Hampta Pass and Chandratal trek equally exciting for me too.
