This one is particularly special. Besides the beautiful views, at the top, there's a lovely park with waterfalls and places to sit and relax.

Lonely Planet calls it. Tourist trap. They are crazy. It was worth every penny. A bus takes you to the train which is at 12,700 feet. A guide on the bus and train speaks English and Spanish. Each bus has medical staff for altitude sickness....More
