This route is one of the world's highest passenger
railways, and according to many, the most beautiful.
PeruRail is proud to unveil it - smoking volcanoes,
deep canyons, mountain plains, steaming springs.
All this can now be enjoyed and is available for groups
of 40 passengers minimum or private charters.
Arequipa, known locally as the White City, stands
at the foot of El Misti, the majestic, snowcapped volcano.
Its fine Spanish buildings are made from sillar, a pearly
white volcanic material. It is a fascinating place
to explore. At the Monasterio de Santa Catalina
you can lose yourself, literally, among the intricate
passageways and fascinating architecture.
