+ Travel Description

Kalanaag Climbing Route


Black Peak or Kalanag is a 6387-meter peak in the Garhwal Himalayas in Uttrakhand guarding the pious shrine of Yamunotri and Gangotri. The west face of the peak is a wall of solid black rock and hence named as Black Peak. It is also named Kaalanag ( black snake ) as its west face of black rock also appears as the raised hood of a giant snake or Nag, which is religiously significant as Lord Shiva's necklace.

While the other faces of the Black Peak is difficult to approach, its North Face is approachable and climbable with a little amount of technicalities. The route to the summit of Kaalanag is crevassed and requires careful negotiations. Beyond the summit camp at 5600 meters, the route to its summit is very steep and requires good stamina, endurance, and technical skills. However, comparing the standards of mountaineering skills that the Himalayas demands, it is comparatively easier and can be taken as a training ground for amateur mountaineers who wish to start their mountaineering journey and get introduces to the rough and tough terrains of the Great Himalayas.

Under experienced guides, this peak can be attempted by trekkers with good high altitude experiences in the Himalayas. However, having trained in snow, ice and rock skills helps. In our opinion, the Black Peak is one of the best peaks for amateur mountaineers and highly experienced trekkers.
