Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO
Quito - Tambillo - El Boliche - Machachi - Quito
Your adventure today starts from Quito's Chimbacalle station. The train follows the legendary Avenue of Volcanoes. The active and inactive volcanoes Pichincha, Atacazo, Pasochoa, La Viudita and Rumiñahui flank this railway line. Good weather offers spectacular views throughout the Ecuadorean plateau.
The route will take you through the jungle of Panzaleo, originally the supplier of wood for the construction of Quito's Churches.
During a longer stop in Tambillo, you can attend a folklore performance and buy local specialties and drinks.
The train then continues to Boliche. Here, near the Cotopaxi National Park, you can take a short hike and enjoy the beautiful nature and Ecuador's unique flora and fauna.
Last stop is Machachi. A variety of native and exotic animals live here on the well-kept farm of Granja La Estación. After a late lunch at the restaurant we head back to Quito.
