Km. 210 — La Raya, at 4,321 meters above sea level, is the highest point on this journey. It is a cold and remote place, where mist or a light rain tends to hide the snow-capped peaks, and whose silence is attributed to the dizzying heights that blocks the traveler’s eardrums. After crossing this enormous slope, the train travels across a sea of seemingly never-ending pastures and lost villages immune to the passage of time.
