Hampta Pass Trek – Reality Check


This was my first time below 9 °C (or whatever was minimum in Hyderabad in the last 10 or so years). I guess the least we had on the trek was at night, at the campsite after Day 4 trek. It was 4°C. Just to be safe and more comfortable, I wore the thermal inners just that night, but my buddies were all normal. So, depending on how much cold temperatures you’ve survived before, this could be a big deal, or nothing to you.

Days were usually hot. So, just a T-shirt and tracks will work fine. However, sun glasses and cap are mandatory. Sun screen also is recommended (we used it too).

  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’ 🙂
