Kanamo Peak Trek
"Every travel with WANDERERS is an experience of a life time."
Day1. Drive Manali to Kaza (Tempo traveller/ Max bolero)
Kanamo Peak Trek Enjoy the beautiful ride from Manali to Kaza via some beautiful roads. From Manali start this day early by 6 in the am. Drive thru Rohtang pass reaching Keylong. Taking the right towards Spiti valley we reach Batal by lunch time. We move ahead towards Kunzum straight away skipping Chandrataal (we visit on our way back). Crossing the Kunzum pass we are amidst the beautiful Lahaul Spiti valley. We enter the very first village in this valley, Losar village. Next villages in order would be Hansa, Kyatoo, Paagmo, Hul, Mohrung, Soomling, Phurik, Rangrik and finally Kaza. The total distance from Losar to Kaza is of 56 odd kms. Witnessing the views throughout is an experience in itself. Stay tonight in a hotel in Kaza.
Day2. Drive Kaza to Kibber (Sumo)
Today is a short drive from Kaza to Kibber. It is a total of 19 kms road journey. This day we shall be visiting the Key monastery en route kibber. We aim at reaching the camp by noon time. Stay the night in the home stay.
Day3. At Kibber – acclimatization day
At nearly 14000 feet we need this one day to acclimatize. So today we don't stress out too much however we do go an acclimatization walk.
Day4. Kibber to Kanamo base (trek day 1)
Today is our day one of trekking. A total distance of 5 kms in a time span of about 6 hours. Today we gain altitude of about 1650 feet in the high altitude hence 6 hours for a 5 kms trek. We have our first night of camping as well.
Day5. Kanamo base acclimatization day
Post b'fast, we head out for an acclimatization walk with a few fun activities (short trek). Later this day, we discuss our trek plan, decide our pace, what to carry and other details and sleep early.
Day6. Kanamo base to summit and return to base (summit day)
The D has arrived...!! Once we receive a go ahead from the mountain gods, we push for the summit. We ascend for about 9 hours to reach to the summit. The last 3 to 4 hours of ascend are steep. Challenges are not only of the altitude and steepness, but the terrain as well. This ascend is completely on scree which add ons to the difficulty. After spending some time on the summit (depending on the weather conditions) we start our descend. 4 hours of descending from the summit would get us back to the base camp. A hot meal and a cup of soup add is on to the celebration. We make sure to start the day at 200 hours so that we get back by 1500 hours.
Day7. Kanamo base to kibber (trek) to kaza (drive)
After wrapping-up our tents and other equipment we push down for kibber. It would take about 2 and half hours to get down. We have a quick lunch at kibber, fresh-en up and move to Kaza. Considering time, we could also visit the Hikkim (The highest post office of the world – 14567 feet) while getting to Kaza. We have our closing sessions and sleep.
