Train riding

For a really thrilling Andes train ride tour through the Avenue of the Volcanoes, the Riobamba – Devil’s Nose train ride (Nariz del Diablo) is a must. This journey, a great Ecuador tourist attraction, originally formed part of the Trans-Andean Railroad and is one of the few remaining sections of train track which still operates in Ecuador.

These days the trainride is run purely for visitors who can enjoy the experience of travelling through the fantastic Andean scenery from Riobamba to Alausi, then the adventure of travelling down the Devil’s Nose section of the line which zigzags along the edge of the Andes in a truly exhilarating and exciting ride of a lifetime. This train journey is classed amongst the most spectacular in the world.
