    Der Parque Nacional Barranca del Cobre umfasst sechs Flüsse und ein Labyrinth von elf Schluchten mit einer Tiefe von bis zu 2000 Metern, größer und tiefer als der Grand Canyon in den USA. So spektakulär der Verlauf der Eisenbahnlinie auch ist – nur an einer Stelle erlaubt Sie einen Blick in eine der Schluchten, und so packen wir die Rucksäcke und rutschen auf steinigen Pfaden tief hinab und quälen uns anschließend atemlos durch die dünne Bergluft wieder nach oben. Der Lohn der Mühe sind fantastische Ausblicke und ein Einblick in das Leben der hier ansässigen Rarámuri.Read more

    Beautiful ride. I was looking forward to seeing more grand vistas like at Divisadero, but I guess when you are in the canyon you cannot get the same view as when you are outside the canyon.

    There were 84 tunnels - give or take one or two - that we passed through either the longest being almost 2km....it took two and a half minutes. At one point the train does a 360 degree turn and another 180 curve with a double switchback. One of those switchbacks was done in a 944m long tunnel. The track drops 200m and we went from coniferous forest to subtropical... Saw papayas growing.

    Almost 2:30 mins in longest tunnel named Descansar.

    We ate lunch in the comedor (dining car). OK, not great, slightly expensive. The best views were from there as you could see almost 360 degrees without being blocked by seats.
