Trek & Climb: Nevado Veronica (5,893m)

Considered within the 3 giants of Cusco; the snowy Veronica is one of the most important mountains of the Cusco region. After all, though its summit does not reach 6,000m; this expedition is a committed ascent. Its closeness to the jungle does not ensure good weather; but it does guarantee an immense landscape.

Preparing for this Peru Adventure trek you’ll be descending from Cusco to the Sacred Valley. Following then; the trek through the Lares valley will help you to acclimate. After all this is good preparation to cross the Urubamba Mountain Range.

This is a technical adventure and is suitable for those with some climbing experience; to get the most out of the trip expedition. Accommodation in the Sacred Valley & Cusco along with other parts of the trip are customisable.

I definitely can recommend Unu Raymi as your trip to Peru Agency. Although they are not just an agency – they do a lot more. During our Peru journey with Unu Raymi Expeditions, we felt confidence and care. We made Ausangate trekking, Sacred Valley, and the Nazca lines with them. Everything they do is well-planned.

This was just what I needed! This introduction to mountain climbing skills was brilliant. I learned a lot from Edu on the mountains and the whole expedition was planned carefully around being acclimated to the altitude. A fabulous experience and has given me a taste of going further with my adventures 🙂
