Kanamo Peak in Spiti Valley is one of the major peaks in India that can be reached by foot. Perennially snow-covered, this visually imposing Himalayan peak is embroiled in adventure, leading you to a snow ridge that stands tall in the backdrop of Kibber and Tashi Gang village.
Kanamo Peak scales up to a soaring 19,600 feet and is approached from Kibber village, from where you embark on a 3-day trek that doesn’t require special mountaineering skill. A good stamina and sufficient rest will hold you in good stead during your stay at Kibber and at the base camp.
The trek to Kanamo Peak leads you through the deserted meadows above Kibber, before you reach Kanamo Lake, above which lays the base camp. After resting for the night, when you could also do an acclimatisation hike, you will continue towards the summit, walking over lose cree before arriving at the base for the last climb.
Kanamo Peak, also known as the ‘White Hostess’, is the perfect way to induce adventure and a raw touch to your Spiti Valley experience.View Full Itinerary

Do yourself a big favour and visit Spiti Valley using this company. The whole team is extremely professional and just a lovely bunch! We did 7-day jeep ride which provided a great itinerary to see a lot of what this amazing place has to offer. Spiti Valley is a once in a lifetime experience and totally worth the effort to go!
Thank you for an amazing "Spiti" experience. This was one of the well arranged and managed travel experience that I have been part of. Still missing the hospitality of all the people who hosted us at all places be it Khansar at kaza, Home-stay at Kibber or Mountain Trail Hotel at Manali. Once again a thank you very much and of course hope to travel with you guys once again. As JRR Tolkien says... Home is behind, The world ahead; And there are many paths to tread…
