Walk along the Rani River into a valley dotted with tiny multi colored flowers until you reach Balu Ka Gera. Balu Ka Gera is a level ground made up of silt brought down by the river. Camp overnight at Balu Ka Gera, 11,000 feet above sea level.

There are two steep climbs over ridges before you reach Hampta pass. Hampta pass is at 14,000 feet is pretty windy and sudden rains or snow also cannot be ruled out.

HAMPTA PASS TREK

Hampta Pass is an unusual, special pass. It climbs out of lush green valleys of Kullu to an overhang high in the mountains. The overhang you stand on is a window to a drastically different world: the deserts of Lahaul. From the pass, you see the Lahaul valley in one wide panoramic sweep! It is one the most surreal twists in landscape you’ll see!
