  • Trip introduction

    This trek to Kanamo Peak is a moderately challenging trek, although it doesn't require any technical knowledge. It takes you to an incredible altitude of 19600 feet, and requires some long days of trekking, so you'll have to be prepared.

    Kanamo Peak lies in the stark Spiti Valley, with bare weather-bleached land all around. You'll be trekking to remote villages, visiting ancient monasteries, and seeing terrain that looks like the surface of the moon. The highlight of this tri however is the summit day, when you stand atop Kanamo Peak, admiring the stunning views in all directions. You'll also enjoy camping near Chandratal Lake, a high-altitude lake that shimmers like a blue-green gem in the landscape.

    On this trek to Kanamo Peak, you'll get to visit Rohtang Pass and Kunzum La, see Bara Shigri glacier, and see the monasteries of Ki and Kibber. You'll also be spending a couple of nights in Kaza where you can do some sightseeing.

    Destination

    Mt. Kanamo stands at a towering 19,685 feet above sea level, even higher than the monasteries of Ki and Kibber. It is considered the holiest mountain in Spiti, and is beloved by all. At such a height, you'll be able to see spectacular views of the ranges of Kullu, Kinnaur, and the valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. The landscape is filled with stunning natural beauty, and the people here are gentle yet resilient.
