Yubra Himal peak (6035m) is a very rarely climbed peak located in the Langtang region of Nepal. Yubra Himal peak climbing offers amazing views of the Ganesh Himal, Langshisha ri, Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung, Yala peak, Naya kanga peak, Shishapangma etc with Tamang culture and beautiful landscapes. Yubra Himal peak is really interesting alternative to others crowded peak in Langtang region and Yubra Himal peak climbing permit has been issued since 2002. Yubra Himal peak is NMA category trekking peak of Nepal.
The fin-like ridge of Yubra is only just visible over the Lirung Glacier from Kyanjin Gompa. Take the short hike up to Kyanjin Ri (4,773 m) however and the view of the route to the peak opens up.
From Kyanjin Gompa the approach follows the right side of Lirung Glacier to reach the end of the steep Yubra Glacier. Avoiding the ice, the route follows a steep gully far to the left which requires some scrambling and hand work to climb.
The glacier flattens out in a snowy camp which can be crossed to make a high camp. The ridge can be joined from the northern most edge at the head of the glacier. A 2am start should bring climbers to the summit around 9am. Fixed ropes might be necessary on some sections of the ridge.
Needless to say, the views towards the surrounding peaks, Ganesh Himal and into Tibet are fantastic.
Despite its technical appeal and stunning location, it’s a peak that is seldom visited. At the time of writing, there were no clear reports available of commercial teams reaching the summit.
