Hamta Pass trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the Lahaul region, affording views of lush green valleys, towering snow-clad mountains and barren hills with surrealistic forms and shapes. It's an excellent option for the trekker who is reasonably fit. The trek proceeds through forests of walnut, oak and the occasional alder. Once atop the Hampta Pass (4270m), another spectacular panorama of peaks appears. Hamta Pass Trek takes us over the majestic foothills of the Himalaya, the Pir Pangal Range, crossing at Hamta Pass (4,268 m) to reach remote Lahaul. An isolated district of Himachal Pradesh, Lahaul lies amongst the Himalaya peaks. This was traditional alternative route between Lahaul and Kullu Valley before the road was made over Rohtang Pass. After finishing the hampta pass trek, we go on road by a jeep towards Chandra Tal.
Chandra Taal (meaning the Lake of the Moon), or Chandra Tal, is situated at an altitude of about 4,300 metres (14,100 ft) in the Himalayas. Mountains of scree overlook the lake on one side, and a magnificent cirque presents a view on the other. The name of the lake originates from its crescent shape. It is situated in the Spiti part of the Lahul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh (India).
The 4 day Chandratal to Baralachala trek is charming and easy to do and not very frequented.This trek starts from the large high altitude Chandra Tal Lake. The Trek takes us over the majestic Himalayas. After we reach the cold and dry mountain desert of Spiti and Lahaul Valley we pass the Bara Shigri Glacier, the biggest glacier in Himachal Pradesh. From Chandra-Tal, you have a great view of high mountains and the Baralacha glacier, which is the source of the Chandra River. The trek ends on top of the Baralacha Pass (4830 m), which marks our highest point of the trek. This trek is perfect during monsoon time, since there is no rain in this Valley.
