In certain circles, the Black Peak Expedition is also referred to as the Kalanag Expedition. It is one of the finest adventures, and as a result, it has become the expedition that people want to go on the most nowadays. Everyone has the ambition of reaching the summit of this mountain. It may be found in the Uttarkashi district of the state of Uttarakhand. This leads to Bandarpoonch, which is linked to Swargarohini summit. This mountain reaches a height of 6387 metres at its highest point. The Sankri base camp is where the adventure gets underway. This journey begins and ends at Ruinsara Tal and Kyarkoti as its base camp. Because of the hill in front of it, the snow does not stop falling, giving it the appearance of a snake. Because of this, it seems to be black when seen from the front. Because of this, the mountain is known as Kalanag peak. The Black Peak Expedition is also known as "Kala Nag" in the local dialect. This peak got its name from the fact that the peak's summit looks like the head of a black cobra.
