Awana Kancha is an under visit Llana family display farm about half way between Cusco and Pisac. You can get to either city via taxi for about 35 to 40 sole. Learn the difference between Llama, Guanaco, Vicuña, and Alpaca. Camels originated in North American about 2.5 million years ago. Some went west through the now missing bridge connecting North...

We visited this after the Ccochahuasi Animal Sanctuary and thus had already had our llama fix. This is a more commercial operation as compared to the Animal Sanctuary. Good facilities and museum.

My wife and I were on a group tour with Globus and this was one of the sight-seeing stops. We learned about the animals - specifically Camelidos of Peru - Alpaca (Love the Suri version!), llama, vicuna, we were given alfalfa to feed the various animals; not that it's bad, but some of the animals would just jerk the alfalfa...

Got to feed the llamas and alpacas and learned about weaving and traditional designs. Very cool and interesting educational stop. The store was very pricey, but had some really nice, high-quality goods.

Get a brief but educational tour about the history, care and breeding of alpaca, llama, vicunya and guanaco from a knowledgeable English-speaking guide then get to meet and feed the animals as a reward after. The museum has no entrance fee but we recommend that one gives a donation to the guide. It was both informative and loads of fun!!!

This is a nice place to visit all the different variety of camelids. They have llama, vicuna, alpaca, etc. You can feed the camelids alfalfa too. The gift shop is amazingly nice and they have bathrooms. There was no cost to the consumer / no admission. They have historical interpreters showing how to weave and how the dyes are made... More

Great collections of friendly Llama and Alpaca. Free admission. Beautiful view of the valleys on the way here from Pisac. We enjoyed feeding and petting those beautiful animals.

This farm gets you close to alpacas, vicunas, llamas and more. Educational displays help place this farming industry in historical ad cultural perspective.

You'll see them around the Sacred Valley roaming freely, but Awana Kancha puts alpaca, llama, vicuna, and guanacos in close quarters so we can see the similarities and differences of these camelids. Touristy but interesting.
