Hamta Pass lies at an altitude of 4270 m (14009 ft) on the PirPanjal range in the Himalayas. It is a small corridor between Lahaul and Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh, India.

Hamta village is located below Sethan village and from there it got its name Hamta Pass. This pass is frequently used by shepherds of lower Himalayan region, seeking for high altitude grassland in the dry cold desert of Lahaul during summer time. Numbers of wild flowers and herbs grow at the altitude between 3000 to 3800 m. Vertical rock walls, water falls, hanging glaciers, tiny lakes, peaks rising above 6000 m are main characteristics of this trek. People need a proper guide to cross certain glaciers.

From Hamta pass one can extend their journey towards the beautiful Chandratal
