Veronica is the mightiest mountain in Urubamba Mountain range and here she stands at a height of 5860m/16830ft overlooking all of the Cusco region. She is coated in a horn of snow most of the year round and named Wakay Willca, or Sacred Tears in Quechua. This is taken in the valley of Urubamba and not far from Ollantaytambo, a famous town of the Inca’s. This is part of the trail to the Inca Quarries of Cachiccata, a good days warm up hike on the way to Machu Picchu if you happen to be staying the night in Ollantaytambo or the close-by in the Sacred Valley.
