Spiti means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India.
The Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley which is located high in the Himalaya Mountains in the north-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh in India.
Kanamo in Spitian language literally translates into, “The Black Mountain”. The villages from where the peak is visible are located on the south side of this peak, from their location the mountain appears to be black in colour, and that is why it got its name. Kanamo also means mountain that has a lot of snow, if one were to reach the top and view the glacier on the north face, the second interpretation is quite appropriate too. The name doesn’t do entire justice to this friendly and beautiful peak, as it is black only in colour and not in spirit.Read More »
