Hampta Pass Trek

After completing the series about our Hampta Pass Trek I realized that the posts related to the trek are not in sequence. In between, I have related about my other travel as experience as well, like the post I wrote about my first trip to the Himalayas or, the one I wrote when I decided to go on my first solo trip. This made it pretty irritating for someone who wanted to read the posts related to the Hampta pass trek in a sequential way. So, I decided to put all the links here ordered by day in this post which will make it easier to find the related post.

By the time we checked-out from our hotel and hurried towards the SBI ATM at Mall road, the meeting point assigned to us, we were already late by more than a couple of hours and almost all other trekkers of our group and another have already left save for four others and us. Soon we were on our way to Jobra taking exciting switchbacks with 39 hairpin bends. With each turn, even though all of them were in shambles, the views seemed to get better and better.
