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.
The trek to Kanamo Peak leads you through the deserted meadows above Kibber, before you reach Thimer Tso(Lake), above which lays the base camp. After resting for the night, when you could also do an acclimatization hike, you will continue towards the summit. From the summit, one gets grand views of Ladakh, Spiti, Pin Parvati Pass, Parang La and peaks of Kinnaur side. The best time to climb Kanamo Peak is May to July.
