The peak of the trekking season in Himachal Pradesh has passed. Now, the region is getting colder. Temperatures are dropping.

“This drop in temperature is likely to cause snowfall in higher altitudes of the trek, especially around the Hampta Pass at 14,000 ft,” shares Caroline Matthew, Experience Coordinator for the Hampta Pass trek. So trekkers scheduled to trek to Hampta Pass in September need to come prepared with the required layers to keep warm.

Beyond September, the temperature on Hampta Pass is likely to drop to sub-zero levels. Snow will set in. It becomes too cold and risky to trek to Hampta Pass in such conditions.

 So after September, the Hampta Pass trek will re-open only in the monsoons next year.
