  • This is a mandatory stop on the way a tourist bus from Cuzco to Puno. Very beautiful views of the snow-capped peaks of the Andes.

  • So the highest point between Cusco and Puno. The view isn't that great. They have a bunch of tourist stuff. Picture with a lama. I feel bad for the train people that only have this one stop. 
  • The train ride to Puno climbs slowly to La Raya (about 14,500 ft elevation) then descends to Puno. There are local market stalls to browse during the short stop.
