Chincheros Alpaca Farm Tour Overview
Fundo Chincheros is a beautiful farm only 20 minutes away from the city of Puno. If you want to adjust smoothly to altitude or enjoy an easy and relaxing day at Lake Titicaca we highly recommend considering a visit to this wonderful place.
This program can start in the morning at 9:30 am and ends with lunch. Alternatively, it can start at noon with lunch and conclude at sunset. It is also a wonderful alternative for those travellers who cannot demand too much of their bodies at high altitude. This tour can also be easily undertaken on the way to/from the airport.
Activities at Chincheros Alpaca Farm.
- Altiplano’s flora and fauna observation: This activity undertakes a moderately difficult hike through a cactus forest and along the shore of the lake. The hike takes us to the community ceremonial site on the top of a hill. This site holds archaeological vestiges of pre-Inka cultures. Duration of the hike: 1hour and 15 minutes.
- Educational walk through a private property to learn about the breeding system of Andean camelides and different species: We also learn about ancient Andean techniques used to produce native products. Duration of this activity: 35 minutes.
- Typical countryside lunch: We enjoy a homemade lunch that allows us to sample native products with exquisite local taste. Lunch is cooked on the traditional “fogón” (the Andean stove where we cook with wood) and served outside in the old hacienda house’s garden.
