Enjoy a breath-taking walk through the picturesque valley of Huarán 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 your trek will start.

You will hike along the river, through native forests and amazing rock formations while you learn all about the noble and native eco-friendly llamas and their importance to preserve high-Andean ecosystems. After a 3 to 4 hour walk uphill at slow pace, you will reach the community of Cancha-Cancha, home of 54 native Quechua speaking families dedicated to self-sustaining agriculture and animal pasturing, surrounded by the spectacular views of the Chicon, Sirihuani and Colque Cruz glaciers.

The typical and picturesque high Andean architecture can be appreciated in the homes of the local people and their animal folds. We will visit one of the local homes and after sharing a nice recovering brunch we will return walking downhill to the starting point.
