Llama Trek with Llama Pack in Urabumba
So after several months of travellig we finally were able to complete one of Cindy’s wishes for the trip – Llama walking/treking. We were introduced to an organization called Llama Pack in Urabamba. This organization is focused on re-introducing the llama as a pack animal in Peru. Many llamas have cross bred with Alpaca’s, and are not as strong and good for packing as they used to be. The llama is “eco friendly” since they do not rip the roots of plants out they cut with their teeth. They also have padded feet that keeps a light touch on the ground and doesn’t cause as much damage as a hoof.
