Fondly known as the “White Hostess”, the Kanamo Peak sits at a whopping 5,974 meters above sea level. Majestically placed in the background of Tashi Gang and Kibber villages in Spiti Valley, Kanamo Peak is one of the very few trekable peaks that can be summited without proper mountaineering knowledge. A relatively easier climb then most summit expeditions, Kanamo can be tried starting from Kibber or Tashi Gang after proper acclimatization. This expedition takes you through some barren and deserted yet beautiful meadows above Tashi Gang, before welcoming you to the magnificent Thimer Tso or the Kanamo Lake which serves as the base camp for the trek. Walking over loose scree and boulder moraines before the final climb, this trek to the perennially snowy White Lady Peak is nothing short of a true adventure and is definitely not for the faint-hearted. And yet, the relatively easier level of this trek makes it for the perfect alternative to the more challenging expeditions like Stok Kangri!
Although the trek to Kanamo Peak has been banned indefinitely from Kibber, owing to outsiders disruptng the peace and harmony in the village, the trek remains open from Tashi Gang side with special permission from the village council, which Trekatribe has acquired.
