  • Were not on the train to the clouds, but if you went the route that comes up there you got 2.30 hs, up, the landscape is beautiful, when we was little missing to get the train stayed at the station, but we were so high that you got to make slow movements, walk slowly, there are locals who have selling handicrafts, ponchos , pashminas. Did the train get photos, but we already felt bad us dolia head, and willingness to return, had to get off because we felt the lack of oxygen. Already knew it was nice but it would not return.
