This place was a nice stop for many reasons. We all were able to use a super clean toilet, feed the animals alfalfa and shop for good quality items. The people are friendly. You can leave about the ways dyes are created naturally but we...More

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

We loved Awana Kancha, one of our first stops in the area upon arrival. Kids and adults loved feeding the llamas, alpacas and vicunas (but, be careful of occasional spitting by naughty animals! Daughter got spit in her eye - yuck!) We really enjoyed taking...More

Interested in textiles? Interested in Peruvian culture? Like animals? This wonderful place is a very hands-on and engaging - textures, colors, demonstrations, interactions with the animals. (I tried feeding them - how fun!)

If you are interested in the animals of the Andes region, you should visit Awana Kancha, a farm about 25 km from Cusco where animals like Alpaca, Llama and Vicuña are kept and their wool used to make textiles. Animals are kept in large pens....More

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.
