ANDEAN EXPLORER TRAIN FROM PUNO TO CUSCO.
Crossing the Andes on the Cusco – Puno – Cusco route and visiting Lake Titicaca is an unforgettable experience all on its own. But doing it aboard the Andean Explorer train will make this a truly once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The Andean Explorer was created to provide passengers with all the luxuries they could want in a trip, while offering them a chance to forge a mystical connection with nature.
The Andean Explorer train features an open-air observatory car, allowing you to take in the majestic views while enjoying the typical music and dances of the Peruvian highlands. During your trip, you will have the chance to take panoramic pictures of some of the quintessential Andean landscapes.
The route covered by the Andean Explorer is considered by many travel magazines to be one of the most beautiful in the world, with a trip that lasts ten and a half hours. At the start of the journey, passengers are welcomed at the Wanchaq Station (Cusco) or the Puno Station, where local musicians will provide background music as you board the train. Once aboard, you can enjoy the two dining cars decorated in the style of the Pullman cars of the 1920s.
The Andean Explorer runs to and from Puno every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from April to October. From November through March, departures are scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. You can bring your carry-on bag aboard the train, and the rest of your luggage will be stored safely on the luggage car, where it will be carefully received and stored.
Price per person Andean Explorer $ 220.00 + $ 7.00 USD by booking fee.
