About Hampta Pass:
Hampta Pass located at an altitude of 14,100 ft (4,300 mt) above sea-level, connects the Kullu Valley to Lahaul Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh. Local shepherds use this high altitude pass to take their cattle herds for grazing in Lahaul Spiti where special grass known as “Neeru” grows, considered a very good source of nutrients for sheep and goats.
