About the event

Grinning ear to ear about this one! Let the llamas do the work for you! They carry a good portion of your weight while you enjoy the journey. We are renting Krishna Temple Llamas. We did this last year and it was a total blast! They just make the trip more fun. Llama Guru named Vai teaches us basics on how to care for llamas on the trail. Easier than you think, plus they don't need food nor water packed away, they just eat and drink along the trail.
