Thanks to Thrillophilia for providing such an amazing and thrilling package in Manali. It was really an awesome experience. The camps and amenities were fantastic. My friends and I enjoyed trekking with our guide Chetan bhaiya. He is very caring and nice guy. Our evening was well spent around a mesmerising bonfire and DJ music. It was like a treat for everyone. Food served was good. The splendour view of mountains covered with snow and enchanting waterfall rejuvenates yourselves like anything. Infact, river rafting was a chilling experience in the cold!! I would recommend others to try such wonderful camping and spend their time in the lap of nature away from busy and chaotic routine life. It is really worth enjoying!

Hampta Pass was my first multiple day trek and I had an amazing experience overall. The base points like Chika, Jwara, Balu ka Ghera are all placed very well from each other and serve as a perfect checkpoints for the overall trek. Our trek started on 14th Oct and due to snowfall our group could not complete the trek and we had to come back from somewhere near Blau ka Jheel. So my advice would be to plan this trek before September end otherwise it gets too cold and you can't even compete the trek. But apart from this, the Hampta Pass Trek is thoroughly enjoyable with scenes that feel straight out of some fairytale or wallpapers. As for beginners, this trek is easy-to-moderate with only very few tough patches. Happy Trekking!
