Yubra Himal Peak Climbing (6,035m)

Yubra Himal Peak ClimbingThe fin-like ridge of Yubra is just visible over the Lirung Glacier from Kyanjin Gompa. Take the short hike up to Kyanjin Ri(4,773m) however the view of the route to the peak opens up.

Through Kyanjin monastery the approach follows the right side of Lirung Glacier to reach the end of the steep Yubra Glacier. Avoiding the ice, the way follows a steep gully far to the left which demands some scrambling and hand work to climb.

The glaciers flatten out in snowy CWM which may be crossed to make a high camp. The ridge can be joined from the northern most edge at the head of the glacier.2 am start should be bring summitters to the summit around 9am. Fixed ropes might be necessary on some part of the ridge.

Unprovoked to say, the views towards the surrounding peaks, Ganesh Himal and into Tibet are fantastic.Besides its technical appeal and stunning location, it’s a peak that is seldom visited.
