Ticket for the train ride to the Devil's Nose

The biggest complication faced by the construction of the Trans-Andean railroad was the Devil’s Nose, a mountain with almost vertical slopes. To overcome this obstacle a zigzag railroad was built, which climbs more than 500 meters in less than 12 km with steep ascents and descents. This railroad remains an impressive feat of engineering.

While recovering from the mind-blowing descent you will enjoy the views of the narrow gorge of river Chanchán and will have the chance to learn a bit about the traditions and worldview of the Puruhuas in Sibambe.

Departure: Tuesday to Sunday, 08:00 and 11:00.
