  • Mt. Kamet is an exceptional summit heightening about 7756m. in remote Garwal Himalayas. It is amongst the most glorious summits in the world and is second highest in the state of Uttrakhand. Mt. Kamet has a long approach through steep hikes over meadows devoid of vegetation endless moraine field’s glacial lakes ice fields lasting long enough to test the limits. It is the technical peak requiring long range of experience to sustain in inclement weather conditions devastating winds ready to torn of camps in mere seconds. The peak was climbed numerous times and first being climbed by Frank Smythe, E.B. Beauman, R.L Hordsworth, Eric Shipmen in 1931. This route from Meads Col was established by C.F. Mead providing the summit to be accessible. The Col divides the eastern Abi Gamin from Mt. Kamet and the base is being set up above camp IV for subsequent attempts. The route offers the exclusive hardships unmatched with its incredible rocky mountain of sheer challenges.
  • It all starts from the high altitude village of Niti, a cluster of local dwellers living in remote Garwal Himalayas. Initially the route goes moderate to unexpected uphills to the base located near Vasundhra Tal. Further similar glacial lakes emerge and vanish as we pass the barren lands engulfed with mounds of huge boulders and rocks throughout. En route Mana, Deoban and Ganesh Parbat are ready to be glimpsed. Ahead treading towards ABC is tedious and the moraine stretches will keep accompanying and distressing ones spirits. At ABC all the loads are prepared and distributed, climbing route towards further camps are discussed and finalized. Requisite load ferries are performed to the further camps and dumped. The route presents dangers of avalanches rock falls at higher altitudes. Soon the camp I is established the task of ferrying load commences again to certain the requirements of the safe expedition. During ascend to camp II there are multiple crevasses, steep slopes of ice and boulders and dreadful noises of frequent avalanches. Apart from it campsite opens panoramic view of east face Kamet, Mead’s Col and the first glimpse of Abi Gamin. Ascending above to camp III slushy snow, boulders and rock ad icy gully will be waiting to be negotiated. Camp IV can be seen clearly as a non impenetrable fortress surrounded by towering rock and ice wall. Establishing camp IV would be trickiest climbing experience on notorious hard ice wall climbing where digging crampons is a tiring task and the rocky face below camp IV. After camp IV continue the quest to establish camp V located on the vast ice field, vast as three football fields, through Mead’s Col. which reveals deadliest winds speeding upto 80 knots. At the camp V we will wait for the best weather window and hit the right time in the midnight. The weather can be furious at such deadly altitudes and it is necessary to observe the right conditions for a safe climbing. The summit attempt is made via north east edge of the Mt. Kamet’s north face a less technical approach lie across deep and half concealed crevasses. The gradient steepens considerably on hard ice covered with thin layer of snow. As we ascend higher consequent lack of oxygen will hamper climbers seriously and along to it the summit ridge is narrow, as narrow as a single person can walk on knife like edge. The summit slope on the north falls steeply to the Mead’s Col and to the south falls gently to the southern rock precipice of Mt. Kamet. After spending some quality time at 7756m on Mt. Kamet’s summit we will descend carefully to the camp V rest there and so on the rest of the campsites taking requisite measures until we reach back to the civilization. It takes almost a month to cover the whole expedition which means returning back to inhabitation would spur to a strange feeling of returning back in the busy lives of the world.

Preparation For Mt. Kamet Expedition

As you know every mountainous excursion demands a precise planning, a planning with adequate pliability of observing and tackling situations, held all as by overcoming mind body and soul throughout the incredible Himalayan journey.

So here are some aspects regarding Mt. Kamet Expedition preparation:

Physically – A trek demands physical endurance, to prepare for each trek you should work out a month before joining a program.  Build up the adequate strength in your legs by running and exercising every day to boost up your endurance. Stop smoking and boost your lungs doing breathing exercises at routine basis two times a day, which will help acclimatize the conditions while being resilient on the trek. Take active part in outdoor games, Yoga and any other cardiac exercises.

Mentally – Mental preparation is key, equally as important as physical training requisite for a trek. Before joining any trek take pleasure in your daily routines, eat well, take rest properly and relax. Do not stress your mind by unnecessary predictions about the trek. Be with your best friends to get motivated and relax your mind. Because pre trek assumptions are not worthy because once you join the trek and meet with rest of the pack will bring encouragement and excitement. The mental preparedness will build through the entire trek conditions. And the physical drawbacks will affect the mind. So pay close attention to various parts of the body and consciously let them loosen up as you trek. When you trek try to relax your body, especially your hips. If you’re on a winding downhill trail or on a panicking slant, think of each step as part of a simple dance and enjoy the natural rhythms that the terrain and your body can find together cautiously. Experiment with different ways of walking as a way of finding enjoyment beyond the goal of reaching a destination. The main key to stay mentally fit is to enjoy the route and not to pressurize the mind.

Technically- Gear up yourself with perfect size trekking shoes and walk with it. Use 60ltr. Backpack in a daily routine with some weight inside it, so you become used to carrying loads. Buy a trekking pole, water bottle, warm socks, thermals, fleece, feather jackets, trousers, poncho,  flip flops, electronics such as power bank, camera (DSLR or digital camera).

Hunter Adams.

We enjoyed this expedition thoroughly. I think what gave our experience that extra something special was the expedition team we went with. . We chose HAT after many emails back and forth with company owner Maninder. The attention to detail and local knowledge we experienced from Maninder and his team and his team was brilliant. It was extremely challenging, but in the end, nothing beats the beauty of the mountains. I highly recommend this expedition who wants to test their limit.
