View Upcoming Stargazing Treks
Last night, the August 13th group of Hampta Pass trekkers was in for a treat! They witnessed a brilliantly clear night sky with shooting stars at the Shea Goru campsite.
“The trekkers were delighted, felt grateful, and blessed to have witnessed such a night sky, after two days of bad weather. Although it was really cold, it felt like -1/0°C at Sheagoru, everyone layered up with the maximum amount of layers they had, and just watched the night sky,” shared Trek Leader Shivank Dwivedi.
The Shea Goru campsite is one of the best campsites for stargazing because it is in the rain shadow region. There are not a lot of clouds here. So all you get is mountains and clear skies. Due to this, although you see Milky Way from other campsites, you don’t see it as clearly as you see from Shea Goru.
The trekkers are presently trekking to Chhatru. They will camp at Chhatru tonight and return to Manali by tomorrow afternoon.
