Amazing experience
Feb 2020 • Friends
This farm is an absolute must see! It is very informative of the culture of weaving and the alpaca/llama farming. The best part is that you can feed the animals yourself! Be sure to leave a tip as if goes to the right cause.

Little museums to self teach yourself about the difference of Llamas and Alpaca, weaving and wood carving
Oct 2019
LOL the last traditional wood carver performs or works here! There are different adobe huts, its informative and no one bothers you, its fun to come if you are restless and want an adventure outside of Cusco. I took a collectivo for 2 sole after Tamboymachay, they have vicunia which is amazing they produce the softest yarn and they are cute... do I know the difference now btwn llamas and alpacas? yes! and they are part of the CAMELID genus... who knew~

Beautiful weaving

Very pleasant stop along the road from Cusco. They stayed open to allow us time to visit the animals and to shop. Beautiful tapestry! Excellent choice of alpaca wool clothing. Great fun to feed and pet the animals.

Road side museum and expensive souvenir shop
Oct 2019 • Couples
On the way to Sacred valley from Cusco our transportation stopped at this road side museum, llama and alpaca place and souvenir shop
The museum is okay. At least it gives you some glimpses of old Inka civilisation. Photography is not allowed inside the museum or later in souvenir shop.
From the museum you come out and see 4 different types of Llamas and Alpacas . The llamas with long hair are typically Alpacas
Later we see a expensive souvenir shop. They sell lots of items of fabric. Items seems good however prices are not customer friendly

Our first stop from the airport
Sep 2019 • Family
As many know the general guidance is to leave Cusco and head to Lowe elevation to acclimate. We had a car transfer ready to pick us up from Cusco airport and take us to Urubamba. Awana Kancha was a stop along the way and well worth it. You see all the animals present in Peru all in one spot and get to feed the llamas which my daughter enjoyed almost more than anything. It was a fun introduction to it only the animals you will see but also the various potatoes and corn grown in country. There is also a weaving demonstration and a place to buy some original clothing and art.

I would suggest it as part of a larger itinerary or on your way to or from Cusco. Definitely worth a stop for an hour or so.

Good place to visit to see Alpaca, Lama, & Vacuna. There is also a museum and gift store if you want to get real alpaca knitware.

A great place to visit to see and know more about llamas
Jul 2019
Though this place is quite far away from cusco, one needs to have their own mode of transport or travel to this place by a travel group to visit this place which is 23 km away from cusco on cusco-pisaq highway but it is really worth the trouble, there are plenty of alpacas and llamas and information kiosk and a cafe/souvenier shop

Great place to see llamas
Aug 2019
Awana Kancha is 30 minutes from central Cusco. It is actually less than 5 minutes past Santuario Animal de Cochahuas so you can visit both places on the same day.
There is no entrance fee but please donate as you enter since it takes $ to keep this place running. My kids had a great time reading about the history, about all the site, the llamas and alpacas. They had fun petting the llamas and had a great time.
Totally worth the visit especially if you have young kids.
