Mt Kamet – Located in the Triangle

Mt Kamet is surprisingly located where India, Nepal, and Tibet meet in Chamoli district of Garhwal Himalayas at an altitude of 7,756 m. The Mt. Kamet is the second-highest mountain in Uttarakhand, India. Kamet appears like a huge shrine that is topped by an almost flat summit area with 2 peaks.

The base camp of Mt. Kamet is Vasundhara Tal which is also the base camp of Mt. Abhigamin. Vasundra Tal is a large glacial lake that remains frozen and is extremely attractive. There are small lakes and ponds present nearby in this region.

Mt Kamet – Kang Med “Burning Mountain”

The Tibetans named Kamet “Kang Med” which means Burning Mountain because the sun rays falling on it makes it look extremely beautiful. It is located in the hidden region where accessibility is tough.

Mukut Parbat, Mana and Gabin surrounds Mt Kamet and glaciers present there are Raikana Kamet glacier, West Kamet glacier and East Kamet glacier. The western one drains into Saraswati River and the Eastern one into Dhauliganga River.

Why Choose Mt. Kamet Expedition/ Kamet Base Camp Trek
