Detailed Itineary: Day 01:Drive to Jobra & Trek to Chikka | 10100 feet We will start a drive in a vehicle arranged by International Youth Club from the reporting point 11:00 AM with your packed lunch to start the trek. We will start with a jeep ride to Jobra. While moving towards Hampta Dam we will get to view the exquisitely beautiful Pine forests, rock faces and trees like Maple, Walnut and Oak. We will trek from Hampta dam till Chikka, which is our campsite for the first day. It takes around 2 hours to complete this part of the trek. The trek is easy with very less ascend. There is a small forest patch and then two wooden bridges to get you to the camp site. Chikka camp site is identified by big boulders and a beautiful waterfall. Meals: Pack Lunch and Dinner

Today’s trail will take you through Jwara- a beautiful scenic sheltered valley. After an early breakfast, trek begins from Chikka and walk along the banks of the river to the left. The route will encompass several small waterfalls, lush green meadows and Dhauladhar peaks will be your constant company throughout the hiking hours. We set up our camps and relax for the rest of the day as we slowly reach an altitude of almost 11000 ft. Meals: Breakfast, Pack Lunch and Dinner
Day 03:Bhalu Ka Gera - Hampta Pass | 14100 Feet | Back to Bhalu ka Ghera |11900 feet | 8 hours 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 5-6 hours to reach the top. 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. Now at 14,100 ft., you are on top of Hampta Pass with breathtaking views that will leave you in awe. The descent is slightly trickier than the ascent as always. It can vary slightly depending on the snow condition too. Meals: Breakfast, Pack Lunch and Dinner
