Alausi: Devil’s Nose Train Ride

Contrary to popular belief (and our outdated guidebooks borrowed from the library) you can no longer ride on top of Ecuador’s Railway train. Sadly, a fatality put an end to this hair-raising practice. Regardless of this we ventured to Alausi where we boarded our train to visit the Devil’s Nose/ Nariz del Diablo. The trip consisted of a 2-hour round-trip ride with a stop in Sibambe Station all for around 30 USD each. At Sibambe you could get some refreshments and watch a cultural performance. The whole thing felt a bit touristy but the remarkable scenery more than made up for this. Enjoy our pictures!
