We visited CCOCHAHUASI on our way from Pisac to Cusco. First the llama-Alpaca Ranch where we hand fed and mingled with them. Now we know the difference between llama, Alpaca, Vincuna and guanacos.
Then across the road to the sanctuary. Puma, Condors, parrots, and many more. And a guide tells you about each and the rescues and some sad stories, and some happy ones. And to be in the aviary with the condors ...............
It´s all free and all they ask is a donation and not in any demanding way.
Yes easy to criticise them on cage size (see below - but they are far bigger, cleaner and better than many zoos) but these people care and have got off their backsides and are doing something. Lovely animals, lovely people, educational, and great feeling to be able to help in a tiny way.
Highly recommended and it is on most peoples routes to and from the valley.
