Hampta Meadows Trek
Season: – July to Oct
You must not confuse it with Hampta Pass trek. Instead of walking beside river down in the valley in Hampta Pass trek, you climb zigzag uphill on the mountain slopes that are locally called Hamta Jot. In this trek you traverse across the high altitude meadows and pastures. As you walk high on the mountain slope, you get good opportunity to have a look of far off high mountain peaks. The whole area is divided into two parts by the river Jobri which starts off Piyangniru Glacier at the foot of Mount Deo Tibba. The lush green meadows are the treasure of Himalayan flowers and herbs. Those who have interest in Himalayan flora and fauna
