About Twincreeks Llama Trekking
Hiking with llamas will add a whole new dimension to your wilderness adventure. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to learn about the local wildlife and wildflowers as well as some interesting tidbits about the history of the area.
Llamas were domesticated over 6000 years ago. The Inca empire relied on llamas to transport goods through the rugged Andes mountains of South America. They are especially well adapted to mountain hiking, having feet consisting of 2 leathery pads, each with a curved toenail. This gives them exceptionally good footing, while at the same time having very little impact on the environment. Because llamas are calmer and also smaller than horses or mules, they are not nearly as intimidating to people with little experience handling large animals. They can even be successfully led by young children.
