This is the crowning day of your trip and the most challenging one. The trek is long on this day and should be started at around 7 AM. It would take approximately 4-5 hours to reach the top. Today’s trek can be broken into two stages. The climb to Hampta Pass which is moderately steep followed by a steep descent to Shea Goru. Now at 14,100 ft., you are on top of Hampta Pass with breathtaking views that will leave you in awe. You will want to take a small break on the top of the pass so make it your target to reach the pass by lunch time, have lunch there and then start the descent.
As we start walking towards the mountains from Balu Ka Gera along the river for an hour when the gradient begins, the trail takes you straight towards Hampta Pass. In no time, you will see the first plateau, the magnificent Deo Tibba peak right in front of you. Climb up the ridges as you come closer to Hampta Pass. The climb is vertical and steep which demands concentration and effort, which is all worth at the end. It can vary slightly depending on the snow condition too.
