At a height of 4400 meters, Hamta pass is a blissful and transcending trek that takes you along Jobri, Chandra River and the beautiful meadows of Chikka, Jwaara, Balu ka ghera, Sheogra and Chatru. It is a small passageway that connects Manali in Kullu valley and Chandratal in Lahaul & Spiti valley.
