Lying above the busy town of Manali, the Hampta circle trek is a stark contrast to everything one experiences in the hill town.  It is a relatively easy trail that doesn’t see a lot of footfall, which leaves you to enjoy the peace of the woods, the scenic campsites and the views of mountains like Hanuman Tibba and Friendship peak. You are so close to the city yet so far! As the trek is off Manali, one can always round off the experience by exploring the hill town or Kasol.

The Area

This trek lies in the Kullu valley of Himachal. The Kullu valley is a prime tourist and adventure destination. It’s unparalleled beauty along with easy accessibility has attracted many adventurists. No wonder some call it the Chamonix of India. The language the people speak here is called Kulvi. Apple is the major cash crop and the whole valley turns red in August!
