Nevado Veronica is the highest peak of the Cordillera Urubamba. It rises just north of Pisca Cocha, a small pueblo on the Vilcanota River that is easily accessible by road or train. The rugged mountains of this region, including Veronica, receive heavy precipitation and are heavily glaciated. There are more opportunities for rock climbing here than elsewhere in Peru.
