For those on the first time for a trek in Manali, I would suggest the Hampta Pass trek. I guess, everyone can complete this easy graded trek within the allotted time of 5 days. But yes, while booking, you should be very careful as most of the Hampta Pass trek organisers do not meet up to the level. If you really want to join this trek, you can book with an organiser like Thrillophilia. I had a good experience booking with them.

From Jobra, our trekking started and took us to a base camp. On the second day, we gained some more height and reached Balu Ka Ghera. Third day, we reached the max height of this trek after reaching Siagoru and finally crossed the 14,000 mark with the great Hampta Pass. Here onwards we were climbing down for the rest of the days and finally concluded the Hampta Pass trek with a drive from Chandra Tal to Manali. Everything seemed magical to me.

The best part of the Hampta Pass trek itinerary was Jobra, Chika, Balu Ka Ghera, Siagoru, Chandra Tal and Chatru. To reach the Hampta Pass, we had to trek till around 14000 feet and the climb was a bit tiring. Make sure you are both mentally and physically prepared for such heights. Also ensure that your trek operators provide you all the required stuff and maintain a safe trek all through the way.
