Hampta Pass in November

Hampta Pass trek is a beginner’s delight as it has all the components of adventure with easy access. This trek offers diverse landscapes of thick pine forests, vast meadows, adventure-filled river crossings and a high altitude mountain pass. It is named after the village of Hampta. Shepherds and villagers have used this pass to come into Lahaul Spiti valley of Himachal. Traditionally, this was the alternate route between Lahaul and Kullu Valley before the road was built over Rohtang Pass. Hampta Pass is a moderate trek with a possibility of mingling a lot of other adventure activities to suit variable duration and interest of tourists.

Hampta Pass Trek in Winters

One of the worst times to trek the Hampta Pass would be the winter season. Hampta Pass in November is tremendously cold and the weather is changeable which makes it unsafe to attempt. Hampta Pass in November is covered with snow, the trekkers seem to avoid this trek due to risk factors associated with narrow roads and slippery ice. Even though the maximum temperature can be 25°C to 26°C during daytime, the temperature goes down at night. The weather can be very unpredictable and can change overnight. The native guides are the best judge of the weather conditions as they change very brusquely on the mountains. This makes the Hampta Pass in November extremely unsafe. Trekkers can go for the Hampta Circle Trek instead of the Hampta Pass in November if they want to experience an adventure.
