One of the most unexplored summits, at 6111m Yunam Peak, is an impressive sight. Yuman Peak is a rare and highly recommended nontechnical peak 6000m+ peak. Yuman Peak can be a perfect choice for people carrying a bit of high altitude trekking experience ready to push beyond 6000m.The peak is to be attempted from North Face moving slightly towards the East direction to make way to the summit. The gradient is moderately steep loaded with loose scree which makes the path more sensitive and challenging. The climb starts very near from the famous Baralacha Pass which is the highest motorable road in the region. The summit offers a magnificent view of Chandra Bhanga range and cold deserts of Lahaul valley which the route is a mix of snow patches, mixed scree and snow lines, and sharply jagged walls of rock and few water streams.
