Tour Overview

Experience a scenic train ride through the Andes mountains on what is considered “the most difficult train in the world” to Rio Bamba, the capital of the Chimborazo province and roughly the geographical centre of Ecuador. This quiet agricultural town is sometimes known as the “Sultan of the Andes”, and travellers are promised breath-taking views of Ecuador’s highest peak, Chimborazo at 6,310 metres.
