Devil's Nose (Nariz del Diablo), Ecuador


Southern Andes - (Day Trip)
Devil’s Nose (Nariz del Diablo)
Alausí – Sibambe – Alausí

The biggest complication faced by the construction of the Trans-Andean railroad was the Devil’s Nose, a mountain with almost perpendicular walls.  To overcome this obstacle a zigzag railroad was bulit that climbs more than 500 meters in less than 12 km with steep ascents and descents.  It today remains an impressive piece of engineering. 

While recovering from the mind-blowing descent you will enjoy the views of the narrow gorge of river Chanchán and will have the chance to learn a bit about the traditions and worldview of the Puruhuas in Sibambe.
