Llama Trekking

Llama trekking is a most enjoyable way to spend a day, weekend or even longer...

In South America llamas have been treasured as pack animals for several thousand years. Wandering tribes people would put all their worldly possessions on to their llamas' backs  as they travelled from camp to camp.

nd it would be the llamas that would carry their wares for sale - often clothing and rugs made from llama fibre - to market

Until the arrival of the railway, llamas were the only way to bring silver and other minerals out from the Bolivian and Peruvian mines.

Even today llamas  fulfil an important transportation role in Andean life.

In the U.S.A llama trekking has been a very popular leisure activity for a decade or more and continues to grow in popularity. Some trails that were closed to horses and pack mules in National Parks have been re-opened for llamas because the llamas do not cause damage to the trails, eating far less of the vegetation and being much lighter of foot.
