Himachal Pradesh is home to more than 200 trekking trails, the most famous and unique of which is the Hampta Pass Trek. An easy grade trek, the Hampta Pass trail is particularly famous for having some of the most beautiful variations in the terrain. You will see scenic landscapes, open green pastures and meadows, glacial valleys, and the mesmerizing view from the pass itself.
It is normal to find a lot of shepherds on the way as they guide their cattle towards the special grass that grow in these meadows, which further adds its own charm to the serene calm and quiet of this trail, as you climb towards the mighty Hampta Pass.
An added benefit in this trek is the detour to the moon-shaped lake, Chandratal. The beautiful lake welcomes you with its tranquility, with the water so still that it reflects the mountains around and the sky above.
