We visited this after the Ccochahuasi Animal Sanctuary and thus had already had our llama fix. This is a more commercial operation as compared to the Animal Sanctuary. Good facilities and museum.

It was a 30 minute stop from Urumbamba to Cusco. TaxiDatum was helpful in coordinating the venue, though I would hardly say that you are missing much if you overlooked it. The shop and textile information on site was interesting. The Llamas are tethered and...More

Awana Kancha taught us about natural dying methods and gave us an up close and personal opportunity to feed llamas and alpacas.

I had never seen anyone ride them. They are not like camels. I have seen someone try to ride an ostrich that was more tame and was not successful. I can’t imagine riding a llama because they are unpredictable.
