This was our first stop in our Sacred Valley tour. Got to meet and see some of the indigenous weavers. Fed llamas and alpacas and got to see a few vicunas. Nice souvenir shop with good alpaca wool items, reasonably priced.

apparently the Vecunas are not seen frequently, however, we were lucky and several were on the hillside and further down. Here you can learn quite a bit about each creature. Piles of grass (?) were available to get their attention. Makes for great photo opportunities....More

I loved coming here. I’m a sucker for alpacas and just had to go somewhere where I could pet and feed one and take a million pics.

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.
