About Us



Llamapath is a fully licensed, professional tour operator based in Cusco, Peru. We offer a variety of treks including Inca Trails and alternative treks as well as tours of all of Peru. Started in 2003 by Jose Gongora. Llamapath has rapidly grown to be one of the top agencies in Cusco thanks to our dedication to providing an excellent service and our groundbreaking policies regarding ethical tourism and porter welfare.

 

From his early career as an Inca Trail porter Jose always felt strongly about the way porters were treated by the agencies so when he had the opportunity to make a difference he took it. Ever since the first trek we ran Llamapath has been dedicated to ensuring our porters were the best treated on the whole Inca Trail. Provided with proper uniforms and equipment, a fair and legal wage and medical insurance to cover them from any injuries they may sustain our team of porters have completely changed the playing field for other agencies. When Llamapath began it was common to see other agencies mistreating their porters, that's not so much the case anymore and we'd like to think that it's in part thanks to the good example we set.

 

Some other reasons to travel with Llama Path:
 
Through this 15 years we have trained and worked with lots of guides, porters and chefs. Now a lot of our staff is exported to other companies; it’s not a surprise to ask anyone of them “who have you been working for?” And the answer comes evident: Llama Path.
 
Moreover a lot of our exguides set up their on companies primarily following the ideas of Sustainable Tourism we have practiced right from the beginning to these days. A few examples here:
 
Raúl Qolque worked as an assistant and guide for Llama Path for several years and now together with his American wife runs Alpaca Expeditions.
 
Miguel Góngora; one of our best guides ever runs now his own sustainable company Evolution Treks
 
Flavio Huamani, runs a small family responsible company mainly especilizing in Luxury Treks to Machu Pucchu.
 
Renzo Serrano, runs now his own company Qaypi Tours
 
Marco Salas, one of our most enthusiastic assistant guides and guide runs now Happy Gringo Tours travel Agency.
 
The list could go...
 
We are happy to know we are doing and leading the right way.
 
Thanks for choosing Llama Path.
