Mount Yamin (also Puncak Yamin or Prins Hendrik-top) is a peak found in Papua Province, New Guinea. Rising around 4,540 m (14,900 ft), it is the fourth highest freestanding mountain in New Guinea. The mountain is poorly surveyed and explored (no records of any climbs or expeditions).


In 1913, Mount Yamin (or Prins Hendrik-top, now Puncak Yamin) was named and reported to have some "eternal" snow. Although this "snow" has disappeared since then.
