If you are coming by bus from Delhi, you will be dropped off at the Manali bus stand or if you are coming by flight, there are flight connections from both Delhi and Chandigarh to Bhuntar(Kullu) airport. From there you would need to get a cab to Hampta Village for around INR 1500 depending on the road conditions. If you choose to come by your vehicle, you can drive right up till Glamp Eco except in snow and excessive rainy months where you would require a 4*4 vehicle to get you to the site.

GlampEco is a location that can be visited all around the year and you would be enchanted by the beauty in every season. In spring (March-April), the place is bidding adieu to winter and welcoming summer. The mountains are still snow-capped with the occasional shower of crystal white snow. During the months of summer (May-June) you would be welcomed by the cool summer breeze and the dancing daisies of the valleys. You could take a walk in the orchards and find a spot under the soft summer shade for a siesta.

Autumn (September-November) is the ideal time to make the most of the nearby treks. The mountains are slowly turning brown from green and you can witness the 50 shades of orange all across the valley. If you want to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and sip on hot chocolate with the view of white crinkled mountains, winter (December- February) is your time.
