The Hampta Pass trek journey is ideal for first-time travelers as it packs in everything from dim pine woodlands, open glades, chilly valleys and an audacious that should not be taken lightly. The last time I read about them was in dismal course books in school, not exactly appropriately surveying the sheer hugeness of their quality. It was as of late that everything fell into viewpoint.
So off we went, into the wild of perhaps the most scary yet quieting mountain scopes ever, to observer for ourselves what it is be in a position of total quiet and harmony. Our excursion initiated from Manali to Prini by street. At that point onwards, by foot to Chikha.
As envisioned, the conditions, in any event, for a fit individual, were hard-hitting. Staying in bed tents, crossing super cold streams and exploring the thick backwoods were only the start of the experience that lay ahead. At the point when one evening, while at the same time attempting to get some rest, I heard a wolf call out, I realized we were in where to freeze just implied torment. I felt compromised however when there could be no other alternative, it is smarter to send up a fast petition and hit the sack. Here is my Hampta Pass Trek blog for Renok Adventures
Hampta Pass Trek Blog – The Trek Route:
Day 1: Manali and Manali Adventure Camp stay in Prini
We were approached to report at Manali Adventure Camp at Prini. Volvo venture was long and tiring we arrived at Manali at around 11 AM and took an auto cart to Manali Adventure Camp. We had great fundamental lunch at Renok Camp in Manali and were advised about the journey then we drove for one hour to arrive at Jobri which is journey beginning stage.
The trip begins with venturing into a backwoods of deodar, throw, oak and maple trees. The excellence is stunning. Before long, we get a stopgap wooden extension over the Rani Nalla. On one side are tall deodars that ascent to 150 feet. They are thick to the point that it is hard for light to contact us. In transit, we cross various streams yet they are not obstructions in the journey. Before long, the Rani Nalla fans out into a wide valley. We before long end up in Chikha and begin climbing once again the lush edge. After all the journeying, healthy and sustaining supper is served.
Day 2: The morning is splendid with the shining warmth of the sun. By 7 o’clock the camp wakes up. After breakfast, we move from Chikha to Balu-ka-Gera. We cross a stream and start an upward move towards the shut finish of the Kullu Valley. The landscape changes quickly. Underneath us, snow patches on the valley increments in recurrence. Ahead, the snow-shrouded slants of the Hampta Pass uncover themselves. Everything is radiantly white. The snow looks brilliant. In transit, a moving stream invites us. I step into the freezing water. The chill freezes my bones yet a feeling of experience calls.
Day 3: No sun, just a light sprinkle. We move to Shiagoru through Hampta Pass. The genuine ascension begins now. Unmistakably nobody has at any point been here previously. There are no impressions. The snow is delicate and virginal. The pass is a wide level. On its eastern flanks are the transcending precipices of the mountain side. On the west, it bends to one side and drops down to Spiti Valley. There is festivity noticeable all around yet we make it short as a result of the downpours. We stroll down and before long wind up in Spiti Valley. We end and camp in Shiagoru.
Day 4: The fourth day is a Himalayan gift. There is no sprinkle and the sky is clear. Today is the last journey of our outing. We move towards Chatru and afterward drive to Chandrataal. It is again a precarious move up to the primary path. The landscape is extraordinary. I was anticipating that it should be fruitless, yet shockingly the slants are green—however they are rock flung. Another amazement is Chatru itself. There are just five-six houses. I was anticipating that it should be greater.
Our arrangements for Chandratal Lake ends up being a failure, because of an unexpected avalanche while in transit to the lake. All things being equal, we choose to go on to the Kunzum Pass. It is one of the greatest motorable passes across the Kunzum range at an elevation of 4,551 m. It fills in as a passageway pass to the Spiti Valley from Lahaul. Goddess Kunjum (Durga/Parvati) dwells in a sanctuary on the Kunzum top and keeps monitor over the pass and avoids the wickedness. Guests ordinarily do a series of the sanctuary to look for her gifts. We at that point come down to Batal and set up our camps. It is a town that lies at the foot of the Kunzum Pass and fills in as the resting point for vacationers. Also, the Bara Shigri Glacier and the three-sided tops in the south can be seen from Batal.
Day 5: It is an apathetic morning as we’ve celebrated throughout the evening. We start exclusively by 9 am for Manali—and back to civilization.
1)One month before a natural life journey, you should develop endurance, muscle strength and adaptability. Running, skipping, pushups and different types of activity help.
3)Carry solid food like dry organic products, and energy bars.
4)Essentials like a light, additional batteries, emergency treatment pack will prove to be useful.
