Yucamane, Yucamani or Yucumane is an andesitic stratovolcano in the Tacna Region of southern Peru. It is part of the Peruvian segment of the Central Volcanic Zone, one of the three volcanic belts of the Andes generated by the subduction of the Nazca plate beneath the South America plate. Peru's active volcanoes Ubinas, Sabancaya and El Misti are also part of the Central Volcanic Zone.
Yucamane together with the volcanoes Yucamane Chico and Calientes farther north forms a Pleistocene volcanic group. Yucamane is constructed mainly by lava flows with subordinate pyroclastic deposits and has a well preserved summit crater with fumarolic activity.
The volcanic group has been active in the Pleistocene, with several explosive eruptions occurring during the Holocene on Yucamane proper. The last dated eruption of Yucamane occurred 1,320 BCE; the occurrence of historical activity is unclear as some eruptions attributed to Yucamane probably actually occurred on Tutupaka.
