Llamas are great companions for trekking given their calm demeanor, agility, and packing skills. Their intense curiosity and willing participation make them a lot of fun to be around. I have found llamas to be good for the nerves and very calming. They have a natural theraputic quality that I look forward to every time I get to go out with them.
