Highlights

  • Kanamo  Peak Trek is considered as one of the most difficult Himalayan Treks with a height of 19,553 ft. which is similar to some other desired and famous Himalayan Treks. This is not known by many people, hence, making it the dark horse when it comes to trekking at high altitudes.
  • It is a good alternative to Stok Kangri and Friendship Peak. It is for this reason that this trek is highly recommended for people who are searching for perfect alternatives to Stok Kangri and Friendship Peak.
  • It has a brown cover of boulders assorted with snow at its stretch which makes it a really unique trek to opt for. Unlike the other treks, you will not find a continual area of snow cover or vegetation. The greenery and snow come to you just at the correct moment and the correct amount.

Overview

Kanamo is formed of two words- "Ka" and "Namo" which adds up to mean "a white lady". Kanamo Peak Trek has a natural appeal to it with an excellent view of some breathtaking places like that of Ladakh, Spiti, Pin Parvati Pass, Parang La, and the phenomenal peaks that Kinnaur offers to us. This trek is present in Spiti Valley at an amazing altitude of 19,553 ft. which makes it a high altitude trek with difficulties on the way. This trek will take you to heights that will leave you in awe. Kanamo Trek is that trek that will give you the charms of mountain climbing in a comparatively subtle and easier way.


A peak with an enormous height of around 20,000 ft. that brings you through some of the most beautiful landscapes and valleys- Kanamo Peak Trek gives you these little moments of achievement and more as you trek along with us. Kanamo Trek is still an unknown venture so to say as many of the trekkers prefer treks like Stok Kangri that has similar thrills like this one. This is because Kanamo Peak Trekking has not been as commercialized as Stok Kangri but undoubtedly it has its own charm in being the untouched one with very few trekkers hiking through its terrains.


This trek is not an easy one. You have to be physically fit and mentally very firm to be able to take yourself to such an emotive height. Kanamo Peak Trekking is a good substitute for Friendship Peak and Stok Kangri. It offers the view and surroundings of the arid mountain desert with very little vegetation. Kanamo Peak Trek doesn't offer many snow chad areas. However, you shall find just the perfect amount of snow along the summit stretch which makes Kanamo stand out among all the other beauties of this hike.


Sparse vegetation doesn't, however, mean a totally brown cover of boulder scree. On the way to Kanamo, the villages of Spiti offers us the greenery of their auspicious harvest season. If you take this trek during the month of August, you will see a stretch of green pea fields that lay surrounded by the dry, brown desert mountains. This variation in the vista is just one of those numerous reasons why Kanamo Peak Trek is the desirable one.

There are assorted fields of snow moraine and scree as you reach the Kanamo Stretch which makes your destination worth the hike. And even though the journey to the summit may be a little challenging, Kanamo Trek with us shall never fail to fill your heart and mind with self-satisfaction and the feeling of achievement.


Kanamo Peak Trek India is one that brings to us the perks of simplicity and subtleness. It doesn't really have sudden scenic variations or anything over the top. However, even so, it doesn't fail to compete with the famous treks that are well known. It has a height that might just make you forget that even simple things can be the route to something so huge and mesmerizing. The brown screen mixed up with the ice along the Kanamo Stretch looks as alluring as a chocolate ice cream with a vanilla topping.


Best Time to Visit

Kanamo Peak Trek India is the most enjoyable during the months of May, July, August, and September. As we approach the peak mid-July, Kanamo summit remains snow chad; hence, making it a great place for snow-lovers. You must be well prepared for the nights as it gets really difficult to adjust in such kinds of weather if you are not well-prepared. During the day time temperatures will range from 16-20 Degree Celsius and nighttime temperatures can go down to -4 Degree Celsius in July.

Kibber village is known as one of the highest inhabited villages not just in India but the world. The roads to Kibber are rather zigzagged and desert-like.


Once you reach Kibber, you will come across the famous Key Monastery which being ancient is definitely a culturally dense site to visit during Kanamo Peak Trek.

The real trek starts today with challenges coming around. Kibber has a terrain that is dry and desert-like.

This trail takes us to alpine lakes that act as water sources in Kaza and also we can see a number of small villages sweeping by.

Today is the day for the real hike. We wake up at 3 am and start our day by trekking to the Kanamo Peak from our base camp. The trail to the Kanamo Peak is a long one, considering the fact that we need to return back to the base camp on that day itself. Hence, the acclimation day in the base camp was very much needed.


The trek today begins as the sky breaks in its first ray of dawn. It is definitely unusual for you to wake up to such an awakening beauty that the terrains of Kanamo Trek can offer. The morning winds are extremely breezy and harsh and hence warm clothes need to be worn to defend your body. We start walking as the surroundings and the mountains around us swallow away the darkness with the break of dawn.


The hike is a total ascend since the very beginning. It is a difficult climb from this point onwards and you will need to hike along very carefully. Being foot-strong and taking large steps is one of the key points in being successful. This is the only stretch where snow will be found and hence, your toes need to really take a reliable hold of your body.


This includes an assorted walk of steep ascend and also walking on plain terrains. In the primary ascend of 7 hours, the last few hours’ climbs will include snow-covered stretch which makes your hike even more exciting. As you climb up, the snow deepens.


Finally, as you reach the summit of the Kanamo Peak, you will witness the mesmerizing view of the Greater Himalayas. As you climb to the peak, you will see a gigantic glacier surrounded by snow-covered mountains on its sides. This bird’s eye view from the peak will provide you with the most amazing scene of Kinnaur and Spiti Valley and also the two renowned passes of Parang La and Pin Parvati.


The Kanamo Peak Trek is devoid of snow but however has snow mixed with scree at the last stretch. Be careful as you trek along. After reaching and savoring the Kanamo Peak to the fullest, we start on our way back to the base camp. This will be comparatively easy as it is a defined descend and will take approximately 5 hours of trekking.
