  1. Listen to Guides:
    • Always pay attention to and follow the instructions given by your guides. They are experienced and knowledgeable about the terrain and llama behavior.
  2. Appropriate Clothing and Footwear:
    • Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toe footwear for the trek. Dress in layers to adapt to changing weather conditions.
  3. Llama Interaction Rules:
    • Respect the llamas and maintain a safe distance. Avoid sudden movements or loud noises that may startle them.
    • Do not feed the llamas without permission from the guides, as they have a specific diet.
