Hampta Pass Trek – Reality Check

Crossing a water stream

Is it easy? Is it suitable for first time trekkers? This is the reality check from the Hampta Pass Trek. My view, my experience and my long time dream come true moment! Quick, top 10 noteworthy points from the trek in The Himalayas.

Ease of the trek:

Many sources we checked with indicated that this is a very easy trek. This list includes a few websites [of the companies] that organize treks, few people who have been on treks before, etc. Either we were too excited to listen to, or may be we were never told so, but the truth is: it’s not an easy trek. Well, easiest of all the treks in The Himalayas, but not an easy one in general.

There were more than few instances when we were thankful that the initially planned 12+ group didn’t make it. For the three of us who could make it, our ego was our strength (Shiva- Well said!). If you have to do it, what other options do you have, other than doing it?? Unless you have that passion for adventure, there are fair chances that you will get pissed off and be mad at everything and everyone around!

If somebody is keeping score: You need prior experience to enjoy this trek. It’s not a cake walk. It’s rock walk!

  1. Hey,

    I need a small help, Me and my friends are planning on a trek with “Trek the himalayas”.
    I was just wondering if you could mail me your experience with regard to the way the trek was organized? i am asking specifically coz the price seems much lesser than the other places. hence the small doubt.
    my mail id is: [xxxxx]@gmail.com

    It would be a great help if you can let me know how you felt the trek was organized.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi,

      We had a wonderful experience with this company. It is a very small team, less than a handful really; and yet the trek was organized very well. We called them and asked questions in email numerous times before we even started for the trek, and every single time the response was very nice. We are very happy we chose this team and I’m positive we will get in touch with this company for our subsequent treks too, if any! 🙂

      Throughout the trek, we had personal attention. That was more important for us as we were first time trekkers, and they understood and accommodated our needs perfectly. By the end of the trek, we became good friends! 🙂

      Let me know if you need information about any other aspects.

  2. Good post on your adventurous Trek and think its once in a life time moment ‘ Kodak Moments’…Ooops.. ‘ IPhone Moments’ 🙂
