From the Lavender Cottage to this alpaca farm, it's about 1.5 hour car ride. The cab we hired for the day was definitely worth it. We slept through the ride.
You can buy feeds for the alpaca for just NT$20. Good deal for some fun.
I thought it would hurt when they nibble on the feed on my hand, but their lips are so soft and gummy that it was very tickley. There are many many many alpacas. Big and Small, Some are brown, some are white. They were all very tamed. They are very much used to seeing tourists.
There are also other animals on the farm.
And for just NT$20, you can ride on this and learn to control it for a few minutes~
