Walking over lush green terrain you will be able to see snow-clad peaks in the distance, beyond which somewhere lies Hampta Pass. We reach Balu ka Gera, a beautiful campsite with exotic sunset views. It has got its name due to excessive amounts of silt depositions left behind by the flowing river. Here, you may experience some strong winds during the night.

The climb to the pass is moderately steep. You move along the river, until your first serious climb begins. The section up to the pass consists of climbing two plateaus, a moderate descent followed by the final vertical climb up to the pass. Reaching the top of the pass is an extremely fulfilling experience. Enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains before descending into Lahaul valley.

The descent is slightly trickier at as compared to the ascent. Depending upon snow conditions, we may have the option to enjoy a swift snow slide down the slope. You then traverse through some slippery terrain before getting to the campsite. The distinguishing nature of the terrain will leave you amazed.

Depending whether or not the roads are open, we drive to Chandertal (14,100 feet) in Spiti valley, which is about 70 kms away from Chattru.
