About Llama Pack - Day Tours
Enjoy an amazing trek alongside Peru's emblem animal: the llama, through gorgeous natural landscapes and in company of friendly high-Andean llama farmers. By trekking with us you will enjoy an authentic, off-the beaten path activity, while learning about nature, culture and local ways of life. Your participation supports the Llama Pack Project, focused in recovering the use of native, eco-friendly carrier llamas in the high-Andes, a tradition almost lost to modern ways of life. The Llama Pack Project is fully committed to strengthening the skills of local llama farmers and providing environmental education to their children, to secure the conservation of our mountain ecosystems and sustainable development of Andean villages. When choosing a Llama Trek you will provide families that have never had a chance to benefit from tourism in the area, a new and sustainable source of income, continuous training and more importantly, motivation to recover their ancestral traditions. We provide treks with different difficulty levels. Bookings must be done at least a week ahead. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We went on the half day. I'd go back and do the full day visit. Incredibly informative presentation and then a really lovely little hike into the mountains with the llamas. Great organization to support.

Had an absolutely wonderful day with the llamas and the local owners of the llamas. This project is outstanding and I highly recommend contacting them to learn more about the importance of replacing mules with llamas on trekking trips.

Hi Francine, Visiting Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu before doing your llama trek is a great idea as both locations are at lower altitudes. You can get there by staying in a hotel either in Ollantaytambo or Urubamba town... More
