Day 2: Manali- Kaza (3686M) - 8-9 hrs
Great experience, trekking was a little tedious in the initial days but then gradually we get used to it. An item worthy of ticking off your bucket list as and when you get the time because believe me this is one trek that you should not miss out on, ever! This peak can be approached and does not require any mountaineering skills and can be climbed properly if one is acclimatized. Once you reach the summit you will get a degree view of the whole region which is very fascinating. From the summit you can get the views of faraway Kullu, Kinnaur and Ladakh.
You can go for the Kanamo Peak trek to make a short holiday in Himachal Pradesh extremely exciting and eventful. At about metres above sea level, Kanamo is the highest mountain in the Spiti Valley. Still, it is one of those peaks that can be climbed without hardcore mountaineering knowledge or experience. The trip begins from Kaza — the administrative centre of the valley — and it will first take you to the famous Ki Monastery. See the incredible wall paintings here, and later drive towards the village of Kibber. Located at an altitude of approximately feet, Kibber is one of the highest permanently inhabited human settlements on earth. Following an overnight homestay in the village, start the Kanamo Peak trekking excursion by walking towards its base camp. Along the way, see how the grassy patches provide a scenic contrast to the almost-barren mountains of the region. Take proper rest on reaching the basecamp, and start preparing for the ultimate climb to the top. Make the ascent carefully, and after enjoying your success and looking at the region from the peak, head back to the basecamp.
There is a certain glamour in a trekkable peak that touches an altitude that most mountaineers climb in. A trekkable peak, after all, does not require any mountaineering skill and can be climbed if you are properly acclimatised. Many trekkers flock to Stok Kangri — around 20, ft — for this very hunger for altitude. However, not many people know that there is another, a lesser-known peak that rises to almost the same altitude — the Kanamo Peak 19, ft. This is a region of Spiti that is still untouched by modernity, unperturbed by civilization. Which makes this trek quieter, prettier and an equally challenging alternative to Stok Kangri.
