Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, but the llamas of Machu Picchu are famous in their own right!!

 

The Llamas Of Machu Picchu

I may have squealed when I saw the first llama as we walked towards the terraces in Machu Picchu. I mean, it was right there!! And then I looked again, and there were more!

 

I had seen my first llama when we visited Lake Quilotoa in Ecuador, but there were so many this time. I was practically giddy!

 

It was early and most of the site was still covered in mist and fog, but there were at least six just hanging out and eating grass. If you walked slowly, you could walk right up to them and pet them. It was SO cool!

After we walked around the ruins for a few hours and the sun was beaming brightly, we returned to the same area to play with the llamas some more. We got a few decent shots including, yes, a selfie!

Although the llamas of Machu Picchu are used to people, remember that they are still wild animals. Always treat them with respect and don’t go chasing after them. If they get bored or annoyed with you they will walk away.

 

Getting to see the llamas roaming around Machu Picchu was the icing on an already very yummy cake. It’s definitely one of the coolest animal experiences we’ve ever had.
