  • La Raya is the highest point of the road connecting Puno with Cusco. There is just up the road, the railway!. This has for decades been the world's highest railway line, until the Chinese have built trafficking Golmud-Lhasa comes at 5000 m. La Raya is a decent mirador of the snowy peaks of the Andes: there's also a cute little market.

  • On the way from Cuzco to Pino, a stop for a photo is an absolute must for Flachlandtiroler here. 4335 high u.N.N, that's what!

  • Only has the grace of having last having last or State in that line dividing to great height, but is a place dirty without any interest.
