Mt. Yunam Peak, a breathtaking mountain, at an altitude of 6111 m (20100 ft), in the Lahaul & Spiti District of Himachal Pradesh only a few kilometers from the famous Baralachla pass on the Manali-Leh highway.
The summit of this peak offers amazing panoramic views of the spectacular Chandra Bhaga( CB ) and Mulkilla ranges. The lake at the base camp enhances the beauty of the panorama. Climbing Mt. Yunam Peak does not require any prior experience or training in mountaineering; although the climb to the summit is quite steep on snow and ice patches across the scree and moraine glacier. It also requires the use of crampons and ropes at certain points. A good fitness level & some previous trekking experience is required to be able to join this climb.
During the expedition, the high altitude and extreme weather with bone-chilling winds can affect your summit experience, so, get proper acclimatization and rest before the summit push and be physically and mentally strong.

The Mt. Yunam Peak Expedition is going to be an incredible experience! We’ll be starting our journey on the beautiful Manali – Leh Highway. Our travels will take us today to Jispa. The Atal Tunnel has made the journey much shorter, and now it can be completed in just 3 hours. So we’ll start comfortably after breakfast.
The landscape around you changes as soon as you come out of the tunnel to the other side. The rich green meadows fade away, giving way to the fruitless barren slopes of the cold dessert. We continue on our journey to Jispa, passing through the charming mountain towns of Sissu and Keylong.
As we travel along the highway, we’ll be surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. We’ll pass through small villages and towns, getting a glimpse into the traditional way of life in this region. Eventually, we’ll reach Jispa, where we’ll set up camp for the night.
After we’ve settled in, we’ll explore the surrounding area. This is a great opportunity to get acclimated to the altitude. Be sure to drink plenty of water and stay active. In the evening, we’ll enjoy a beautiful sunset before returning to camp for dinner. Then it’s time to get some rest so we can be well-prepared for the exciting journey ahead. Mt. Yunam Peak is waiting!

After a lovely breakfast in Jispa, we will load our backpacks with the necessary supplies for our Mt. Yunam Peak Expedition and start on the drive to Bharatpur. Bharatpur is the basecamp for this exciting expedition. The Mt. Yunam Peak is a thrilling challenge that awaits us!
As we drive, we will witness the beauty of Suraj Tal, Deepak Tal and the famous Baralacha La. As we’re about to reach the Bharatpur campsite, we will get a glimpse of Mt. Yunam Peak standing in grandiose on the other side of the highway.
Bharatpur is at an altitude of 4500 m, a considerably high altitude. So, it is normal to experience some symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), such as headache, nausea, and lack of sleep. You must drink plenty of water and eat proper food to acclimatize to the high altitude.
We’ll camp at Bharatpur overnight and get a good night’s sleep to prepare for our Mt. Yunam Peak Expedition the next day!
Distance: 10 km
Time: 8 Hours
Altitude: 5,200 m (17,060 ft)
This is the day that we will be doing our first rotation up to the basecamp of Mt. Yunam Peak. We will be carrying all of our gear up to the higher altitude to acclimatize to the thinner air. This is an important step in our journey, and it is one that we will take very seriously.
We must start early because we’ll need to cross a river on our way. The water in the river stream increases significantly in the evening because of the melting snow of glaciers. So, we’ll need to head back as soon as possible to cross the stream safely.
The route to the base camp starts from the other side of the highway by navigating amidst wildflowers. The way will be winding, but you’ll eventually make it to the river bank. From there, we’ll make a chain and cross the river safely.
After crossing the river, the trail becomes steep all the way to the base camp. Moreover, the trek to base camp will seem gruelling today because of the high altitude. Take your time, rest when you need to and drink plenty of fluids. You’ll be able to make it to the base camp if you take it slow.
Once we reach the base camp, we rest and have our packed lunch. We’ll stay for some time to let our body acclimatize itself and head back to Bharatpur.
This is an important day, and we want everyone to be safe while completing the first rotation. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, eat well and get a good night’s sleep.
Distance: 5 km
Time: 4 Hours
Altitude: 5,200 m (17,060 ft)
After a nutritious breakfast, we will set off towards Mt. Yunam Base Camp. The journey is quite long, but we will make good time by following the same path we took yesterday. By now, your bodies would have better acclimatized to the altitude, making the trek seem easier than yesterday.
When we reach Mt. Yunam Base Camp, we will set up our tents and take a well-deserved break. The base camp is very windy, so it is important to protect yourself from the elements and rest your body. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids to help acclimatize naturally.
In the evening, we will have some snacks and tea, after which you are free to explore the area around the base camp. Dinner will be served in the base camp itself.
Make sure to get a good night’s rest so that you are well-prepared for the challenge ahead.
We’ll spend the day getting acclimatised to the altitude and the environment before climbing Mt. Yunam Peak. After breakfast, we’ll explore the surrounding area. There is a beautiful high altitude alpine lake near the basecamp. We’ll explore the area, take pictures and enjoy the view.
After lunch, we will have a practice session in which you will be briefed about equipment and its usage. We will practice negotiating snow glaciers that you will cross during the expedition. You need to practice and get used to the climbing gear including crampons, harnesses, and climbing boots. Get familiar with your equipment and learn how to properly arrest your slope falls. After the practice session, we’ll rest and enjoy the view.
Dinner will be served early because we have to get an early start tomorrow. You’ll need all the rest you can get before the big day. Tomorrow, we’ll summit Mt. Yunam Peak!
Distance: 6.5 km
Time: 10 Hours
Altitude: 6,111 m (20,050 ft)
This is the most important day of the trek. The trek to the summit of Mt. Yunam will start at around 2 in the morning. The way to the summit is a steep climb; you will be climbing through moraines, glaciers, snow and scree clad trail to reach the summit. At this point, you might be feeling tired, but it is important to push through and continue the trek.
Remember, you are embarking on an amazing expedition that will take you to the top of Mt. Yunam Peak! Keep going and enjoy the views from the summit! You will be able to see the magnificent view of the beautiful peaks and Chandra Bhaga (CB) & Mulkilla mountain ranges adjoining the summit.
Although it is a tough trek, the view from the top is just as rewarding as the gruelling trek. Amidst the mountain ranges, the location of Mt. Yunam Peak is picturesque. So, don’t forget to take some time to enjoy the view and snap some pictures!
After spending some time at the summit and having packed lunch, you will descend to the base camp. Once you reach the base camp, have dinner and get a well-earned rest.
After a final breakfast together, we will say goodbye to Mt. Yunam and return down the mountain. Descending the slopes, we’ll marvel at all of the wonderful memories made during our expedition. Arriving in Bharatpur, we’ll board our vehicles and be driven back to Manali. You’ll reach Manali by 6 PM.
We’ll refresh and meet up to celebrate the summit and the journey. Friends from the mountains are friends forever. We’ll have a sharing session where you’ll get a chance to narrate the best memories of the expedition!
The best time and season to do Mt. Yunam Peak Expedition is in pre-monsoon or post-monsoon seasons. Pre-Monsoon: March to June. Post-Monsoon: September to November. In the pre-monsoon season, you’ll find more snow on the mountain, which can make for a more challenging expedition.
However, the post-monsoon season is typically more stable, with less chance of avalanches and other weather-related hazards. Ultimately, both seasons have their own unique challenges and rewards, so it’s up to you to decide which one is right for you.
Mt. Yunam Peak is located in the Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh near the famous Baralacha La Pass. It is a 6,111 m mountain.
The difficulty level of Mt. Yunam Peak is moderate to difficult. The climb is not technically difficult, but there is a lot of elevation gain and it can be quite challenging due to the altitude.
