Llama Trek to Archaeological Remains (Full Day)

Trek Description

Enjoy an amazing walk through the picturesque Pumahuanca Valley in company of the llamas owned by the community families involved in the Llama Pack Project.

Before you start your trek you will be introduced to the Llama Pack Project, then the llamas will be gathered and packed and your trek will start. You will hike along the river, through native forests where the rare native trees such as queñual, aliso and chachacomo can still be found and you will learn all about the noble and native eco-friendly llamas and their importance to preserve high-Andean ecosystems. After a 2 to 3 hour walk uphill at slow pace, you will reach the archaeological remains of Inkarakai. There, with a beautiful view of the valley we will have a nice rest and then continue towards the outdoor picnic site.
