Trekking in Himalaya is always lifetime experience, mixed feelings, strenuous but in the end a wonderful experience with lots of memories. The scenic landscape changes its nature gradually offering a visual delight to the trekkers. The horizon is filled with the infinities of the sky and a unique tranquility surrounds the atmosphere. You can hear the sound of the wind and feel the true power of nature which is otherwise lost in a hustling city life. All you feel at that moment is completely 'humbled' in front of Mother Nature.
The route of the Hampta pass through delightful alpine pastures, snowfields and offers magnificent views of peaks such as Mount Indrasan (6221 meters), Mount Deotibba ( 6001 meters ) and the other side of the valley known as the Spiti Valley in Lahaul District.
