The fort is quite ancient. Remnants of Microlithic man have been discovered here. The various Puranas (ancient scriptures) like Matsyapurana, Agnipurana and Skandapurana include many references about Harishchandragad. Its origin is said to have been in the 6th century, during the rule of Kalachuri dynasty. The citadel was built during this era. The various caves probably have been carved out in the 11th century. In these caves are idols of Lord Vishnu. Though the cliffs are named Taramati and Rohidas, they are not related to Ayodhya. Great sage Changdev (one who created the epic Tatvasaar), used to meditate here in the 14th century. The caves are from the same period. The various constructions on the fort and those existing the surrounding region point to the existence of diverse cultures here. The carvings on the temples of Nageshwar (in Khireshwar village), in the Harishchandreshwar temple and in the cave of Kedareshwar indicate that the fort belongs to the medieval period, since it is related to Shaiva, Shakta or Naath. Later the fort was under the control of Moguls. The Marathas captured it in 1747.

Information About Hampta Pass Trek:-
It is a short trek of just 5 days. The trekking in Himanchal – Hampta Pass starts from beautiful hill station Manali. At an altitude of Manali trekkers cross from Jobra to Chika. Crossing through small pine forest, huge rock and rich vegetations are remarkable. Travelling just for four hours and you reach to the second destination of your trek – Chika. Here you enjoy the refreshing river, waterfalls and grassy land.
Here the camps are tented and trekkers hold at night and relax. The second day of the trek is Balu ka Gera. At Balu Ka Gera you meet with huge rocks at Nani Lake, enjoy the icy cold water, mountain and click photographs to make your trip memorable.
The next destination is Shea Goru, it is a 8 hrs journey. Colorful river side tiny flowers and patches of snow divert the attention of trekkers. At an altitude before crossing the Hampta Pass Deo Tibba Peak is clearly visible. Hampta Pass has got two ridges. The zic-zag route, U-turn, downhill and snow fall with an uncertain rainfall makes the trekking moment more enjoyable. It is an easy trek with a moderate level of walking area.
Then here comes the second last destination from Siagoru to Chatru; it is a downhill trek of 5 hours. Here you get rivers and beautiful valleys in the heart of mountain ranges. The trekking is quite difficult in this area because of slippery soils and rocky edge path. Chandra River and glacier flow near it makes a remarkable statement in trek. The final destination to the trek is Chatru to Chandratal. Chatru is at a distant of 70 Kms far from Chandartal.
You can drive to Chandar tal and visit the Moon Lake; it is the main point to visit in Chandartal and step back to Manali after enjoying your time at utmost. You can also enjoy the local sightseeing of Manali.
Day 01: Manali to Chika:-
All the tourists will be reaching Manali which is also known as the paradise of India by afternoon. Many types of transportation facilities buses and cars are available for you to reach Manali. In Himachal Pradesh Kullu and Manali are the too small towns which are located very close to each other.
Both the places are visited at the same time by all the tourists. As soon as you reach Manali you will take rest
in the provided lodge or hotels. This place is famous for good food and weather. The people over here are you helping nature. After having a delicious lunch at any restaurant, you can start your journey for today towards Chika.
It is situated 10,250 feet about the sea level. All along the way, you will be able to see a very famous temple which is known as the origin of small hot spring. This temple is called Vashisht temple. According to beliefs the spring is holy water. This place is just 3 kilometres away from Manali. If you are going by a cab, then there is an intermediate destination called Johari.
From this place, your actual trek starts. There is a manmade bridge made up of concrete what is supposed to be crossed by you. After crossing the bridge, keep yourself to the left, and it will take you the forest having coniferous trees.
The geography of this place doesn’t allow any other kind of trees to grow because of snow. After you have your final crossing Aleonallah, you will reach beautiful meadow, having full of greenery. The grasses on the meadows are evenly spread giving you a nice glimpse of the scenery.
You will not have to worry to travel this place as the terrain is flat. After travelling for 2 to 3 hours in the same direction, you’ll reach the final destination for the day-Chikka. You will be camping beside the stream of water and you can spot very beautiful site of the waterfall from the camping area.
Day 02: Chika to BalukaGhera:-

Walk along the Rani river into a valley dotted with tiny multi coloured flowers until you reach Balu Ka Gera. Balu Ka Gera is a level ground made up of the sand and dust brought down by the river. Pitch your tents and camp at Balu Ka Gera, 11,000 feet above sea level.
Day 03: Baluka Gera to Siagoru, Cross Hampta Pass:-
The trail from Balu Ka Gera to Shea Goru is moderately steep with a final sharp descent. The trail moves along the river which is lined by tiny pink and yellow flowers. If you trek during summer, you will find a lot of snow, else you may see a few snow patches. There are two steep climbs over ridges before you reach Hampta pass. Hampta pass at 14,000 feet is pretty windy and sudden rains or snow also cannot be ruled out.
The descent to Shea Goru from the pass is slightly tricky. Sliding down the snow could be an option. You will reach Shea Goru in about 2 hours. Camp overnight beside the river at Shea Goru.
Day 04: Siagoru to Chatru. Drive to Chandratal:-
Get up soon and have your breakfast. Get ready for the trek and cross the river which is seen from the campsite. Half of your trek is very easy as it will be full descend and the rest of the trek will be very tiring for you to traverse very steep altitude. It will make your path difficult when you will face the rock zone. After descending you will see the large valley of river Chandra.
Chandra River is at 11000 feet above the sea level and is located on the highway of Manali and Kaza. It is an exhibition place as one side you can view the mountains full of snow and the other side you will view barren mountains. On the way, you can satisfy your hunger on the dhabas located on the way of your trek.
Day 05: Chandratal to Manali:-
Depart from Chatru/Chandratal* to Manali early morning by shared cabs. Plus Valley Adventure will arrange vehicles to drop trekkers back to Manali.
