Mt. Kanamo Summit

Mt. Kanamo Summit

June 22nd - 29th, 2014

(7 nights 8 days)

Kanamo peak better known as the ‘White Hostess’ at 5964M towers above kibber and Ki gompa in Spiti valley of West Himachal Pradesh. ‘White hostess’ is considered a good omen by the locals. Spiti, locally pronounced "Piti", is bounded on its south and west by the valleys of Kulu and Lahaul; the region of Ladakh lies to the north and the Kalpa valley lies to the south-east. Geologically and archaeologically, Spiti is a living museum. The mountains are devoid of any vegetation and erosion by wind, sun and snow over thousands of years has laid bare the rocks. The rugged and rocky mountain slopes sweep down to the riverbeds giving the landscape a moon-like appearance. Surrounded by the Kibber plateau, the region of Kaza is pristine and has its fair share of wildlife ranging from Blue sheep to Himalayan to Tibetan wolves and the elusive Snow leopard.
