Walking in the mountains of the Peruvian Andes

Since ancient times, the ancient inhabitants of the Andes have walked the mountains. This was the only way to get to other destinations.

They came to make long trips of several days, with the purpose of exchanging products with people from other climatic regions.

In the high mountains they cultivated tubers and raised animals such as alpaca and the llama that provided them with wool and meat; instead in the valleys grains and fruits were harvested.

This has allowed the Peruvians to develop the ability to walk long roads, of course these llamas accompanied these walks, which were the ones that helped with the load.

Groups of llamas of 30, 50 or more traveled the ancient roads that linked the entire Tahuantinsuyo.
