  • Trip introduction

    The trek to Kanamo peak offers you the chance to summit a high-altitude peak, extending beyond 19,500 feet, without any mountaineering experience on a short 7-day itinerary. Designed only for travellers with prior trekking experience, this adventure takes you deep into Spiti Valley, over a challenging route that requires clever and careful footwork.

    As you approach the summit, you'll encounter thick scree and snow, requiring the use of crampons. Your effort is reward with panoramic views of the valley, including the distant passes of Pin Parvati and Parang-La. En route, you'll trek past turquoise mountain lakes and flourishing farmlands, often stopping at vantage points with stunning views of villages in the valley.

    Destination

    Kanamo, roughly translating to the 'White Lady', is a mountain peak standing tall in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. The trek to the summit begins from Kibber, one of the highest inhabited villages in the world. En route, you're greeted with artistic views of arid terrain and stark desert mountains. Painted in differing shades of brown and grey, these peaks in the Spiti region make for some of the most stunning views of the valley. En route, you'll also come across several small communities of Spiti that are uninterrupted by the modern, urban life.
