Stop At: Alausi, Alausi, Chimborazo Province

Experience two of the most interesting destinations in our country. After hotel pick up in Riobamba you'll travel to Alausi, a little town considered a national heritage. In this charming town you'll take the train known as "The Devil’s Nose", once considered one of the greatest feats of engineering that the world had seen.

This railway was built in 1899 with the intent of linking the coastal city of Guayaquil with the highlands capital of Quito. This amazing ride traverses and descends an almost perpendicular mountain face by using switchbacks. Many lives were lost in the construction of this extraordinary railway.
There are 2 options after the train excursion. You''l return to Riobamba or you can continue to Cuenca.

In the 2nd option, our trip continues on the Pan-American Highway to Ingapirca, which is the major Inca archeological site in Ecuador. You'll have the chance to appreciate one of the most important Inca structures, an elliptical platform known as the “Sun’s Temple”.
