Yukamani (hispanicized spellings Yucamane, Yucamani) is an andesitic stratovolcano group in southern Peru. It is located in the Tacna Region, Candarave Province, Candarave District, west of the lake Wilaquta.
Yukamani is made up of two stratovolcanoes, Yukamani itself which rises to 5,550 m above sea level and Calientes which rises to 5,358 m above sea level. Only Yukamani has a youthful summit crater.
The only recorded activity was an eruption of uncertain specification in 1787. Eruptions were reported in the 19th and 20th centuries, but these are considered unlikely.
