Glacier-covered Sara Sara volcano lying between Laguna Parinacocha and the Río Ocona is the westernmost young volcano in Perú. The 5522-m-high andesitic stratovolcano was the source of youthful-looking lava flows with prominent levees that traveled about 10 km eastward into the Río Ocona valley. Pristine lava flows on the upper slopes of the volcano and ash layers in peat deposits at its base suggest a very young, probably Holocene age.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Sara Sara. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Sara Sara page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Sara Sara.

Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
