Highlights

  • An easy alternative to the slightly challenging Hampta Pass trek.
  • The trek lets you experience the beauty of the Hampta Pass trek through offbeat trails and a relatively easier gradient.
  • Mesmerizing views of Hanuman Tibba, along with Dhauladhar, Bara Bhangal, and Pir Panjal Ranges.
  • Makes for a great weekend trek, too!

Overview

Often mistaken for the slightly more challenging Hampta Pass trek, the Hampta Circle trek is a short yet equally beautiful trek that traces a more unexplored trail. You get stunning views of the lofty Bara Bhangal, Dhauladhar, and Pir Panjal Ranges even without the difficult climb to Hampta Pass. Placed in the Kullu region of Himachal Pradesh, the trek plunges into the beautiful forests of pine, oak and deodar, lush meadows and through some of the most beautiful mountain villages. The trail begins from Jagatsukh and ends at Prini village. This 4 days trek is enjoyed best when done during the months of May and June when a blanket of pristine snow shrouds the trails. If you're unable to spare the required days for the Hampta Pass trek, or just wish to dip your toes into Himalayan trekking, you should seriously consider the Hampta Circle trek.

Brief Itinerary

Detailed Itinerary

Drive to Jagatsukh from Manali in the morning. The village is known for its beautiful apple orchards. We start trekking post breakfast. The trek takes us through Bhanara village within a half-hour, and this ascent includes a great number of steps to climb. A canopy of apple trees can line our trail now, and we continue past the village and into a lovely pine forest through yet another bunch of stairs. Takshak Nag Mandir is a beautiful Shiva Temple that falls en route our trek today. We resume trekking after a short halt here. The trail soon opens up into a beautiful clearing which is our campsite for the night.

Meals : Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 2.5 hours
Altitude : 7,857 m
Distance : 3 km

Day two of the trek is relatively moderate but equally thrilling. We continue further into the heart of the forest until the tree line is left behind and a sweeping meadow pops up. A few minutes into the trail and the majestic Hanuman Tibba rises to greet you. We also come across some temporary Gujjar huts, from where the path climbs uphill to Saraha Baggi. Behold the wonder of the city unfolding before your eyes in entirety, while distant Himalayan peaks watch over you. Explore around the site to your heart’s content. This is our campsite for the night.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Time Taken : 3 hours
Altitude : 10,170 ft.
Distance : 7 km

We leave behind one beautiful campsite and make for another. The trail unfurls over a lush green path, crisscrossed by a variety of bright yellow flowers. After an hour, we reach a gushing waterfall, from where the trail climbs into a dense forest. The trail near the waterfall must be traversed with caution, as it is narrow and likely to be slippery and muddy. The trail maybe, depending on the season, laden with crisp chestnuts or a fine carpet of snow. And if you though Saraha Baggi was beautiful, today’s campsite will leave you stunned! The trail soon leads to Sarotu, the most beautiful campsite of our trek. Guarded by massive Himalayan neighbors, you can see numerous shepherds with their flock nearby. The beauty of this campsite is overwhelming. Camp at Sarotu for the night.

Meals : B, L, D
Accommodation : Tents
Altitude : 10,370 ft.
Distance : 4.5 km

Despite being the shortest day of the trek, the descent may exhaust your knees. Maintain a steady pace while descending, making sure you don’t put a lot of pressure on your knees. Trek past Sarotu hills, and cross a gurgling stream to arrive at the Jobra Dam, from where the Hampta Pass trek begins. This officially marks the end of your trek. Freshen up and rest a little at Jobra, then drive back to Manali.

Meals : Breakfast Only
Accommodation : Not Included
Distance : 4 km

How to Reach Hampta Circle Trek Base Camp (Jagatsukh, Manali)

By Air

The nearest airport is in Bhuntar which is 11km from Kullu and 52 km from Manali. You can take a taxi from Bhuntar to Manali which will cost approximately Rs, 1000/-. The airlines that you can take are Indian Airlines, Kingfisher Airlines, Jagson Airlines operating flights from Delhi as well as Chandigarh. To reach Manali by air, you need to have a connecting flight via Delhi or Chandigarh. Delhi or Chandigarh is well connected to major airports across the country. You can check your flight in the following links: 1. https://www.google.com/flights, 2. https://www.makemytrip.com/flights/


By Road

To reach Hampta circle trek by road, you can take an overnight bus from Delhi to Manali or Chandigarh to Manali. Manali is well connected to cities by road. The roads are in good condition but there are sudden landslides in the monsoon season. The bus from Delhi to Manali can take up to 14 hours and from Chandigarh to Manali is 9 hours at least. Tickets are available online on Redbus.in, Goibibo.in or Hrtc.gov.in. You can pay online for the bus tickets. You should always take the Himsuta bus from HRTC as they are the most comfortable government buses on this route. You can also book private buses but sometimes sudden hiccups come with them. The last government bus leaves at 11:15 pm at night and starts from ISBT Kashmere Gate. Plan your onward journeys only post noon giving enough buffer for bus delays.


By Train

We do not recommend you travel by train as the closest railway station, Jogindernagar is 5 hours away which you will again have to cover by bus or cab.

You should inform your leader on the arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Vaccinations: You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid.

10. Altitude: This adventure involves going to a very high altitude.

11. Guidance on Tipping: Tipping is the accepted way of saying thank you for good service.
