Mount Yunam lies parallel to the Baralacha Pass, surrounding the Ladakh border in Himachal Pradesh. The Baralacha Pass acts as a doorway to Sarchu, which intersects Himachal and J & K. Trekking in Himachal Pradesh has become one of those exotic activities that everyone does once in a lifetime. The base camp is located in Bharatpur, just a few kilometers from the Baralacha Pass on the Manali-Leh route. After maneuvering through snow and scree, Mount Yunam Peak stands at an elevation of 6110 meters.
Mount Yunam Peak is one of the few that can be compared to Stok Kangri, even though Yunam is not well-known and only a few individuals who have traveled the Manali-Leh highway are aware of it. Yunam peak trek is challenging for the faint of heart; prior expertise climbing at elevations of 5000 meters or higher is essential.

Bharatpur (Acclimatization day)
Trekking in India offers wanderers a solitary haven. Some trekkers love to explore hidden trails, while some marvel at the ethereal beauty of the snow-capped mountains, forming a boundary against the modern world. Today, the track continues to the snow line and gently ascends from Bharatpur. Due to the increase in altitude in two days, trekkers should expect minor headaches, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms, which are all normal in these conditions. The Yunam trek abounds in many snow-covered trails, so set a day aside for acclimating to the greater altitude and weather conditions. After breakfast, training on snow and ice will be led by the team. Return to the campsite by lunchtime, then relax until the evening. Overnight stay in comfortable tents.
Bharatpur to Camp-1 (17390ft)
Leave for Camp-1 in the morning after breakfast. Trekkers will benefit from the previous day’s practice from walking on snow patches for the 5km walk. On the trip, there will be a few water spots for replenishing water bottles. Drink enough water for proper acclimatization. Arrive in the afternoon at Camp – 1 and eat lunch. After lunch, go exploring in the surrounding area. Back to camp for dinner and a good night’s sleep.
Camp-1 Acclimatization (17390ft)
Trekking in Himachal Pradesh is like a glimpse into the bliss of heaven. However, the high altitudes are challenging. Therefore, spend the day acclimatizing and practicing for the summit walk. Amid the tranquil ambiance, the group will lead the training of ascending and descending on snow. The trek leader will be involved in this training for informing the trekkers about the challenges on summit day. During the training and practice sessions, a greater emphasis on physical fitness will be placed. Return to the camp for lunch. Indulge in an early dinner followed by plenty of rest as the summit will be at 3 am. Overnight stay in the tents at night.
Camp-1 - Summit (20178ft) – Bharatpur
The alarm will go off at 2:00 am. The Yunam Peak trek will begin after a light breakfast. Today’s hike will last 8 to 9 hours. At this altitude, one can anticipate encountering spine-chilling chills, numbing cold wind, and some breathing issues when trekking. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It will be difficult and time-consuming to reach the summit. At the summit, trekkers will get a good sense of how technical the climb is. Relish the commanding view at the summit and descend to the base camp in Bharatpur. Tents are available for rent.
