Awana Kancha was born more than 17 years ago, as a family initiative who sought to revalue the ancestral knowledge about the immaterial culture that they had known through many incursions into our Country, on expeditions to communities and unknown and almost forgotten places.
The initial idea was to be a center for the exhibition of native animals, being the South American camelids, the protagonists of the project, at that time.
Thus, it is managed to obtain an adequate space to be able to raise them, take care of
them, protect them; here at Km 23 of the Cusco - Pisaq highway. At the beginning,
alpacas and llamas were obtained, but then the pertinent actions were taken to obtain
permission to also include vicuñas and guanacos in the exhibition.
