a village,famous for its parish church...baroque facade and sculpted high altar...
to see ,while waiting quite an hour for the train coming from puno!
snowy weather...it freezes!
the pass is situated in the centre of a natural reserve of vicunas,llamas,alpacas and guanacos.
for incas,was a important holy place,the sun's birthplace!
good items of alpaca and llama wool and products can be bought on the railway station at arrivals times......and at sunday morning market!
you'll find hat shops too!
Favorite thing: It's been some years, but I spent a night in an eco-lodge just outside of Sicuani that was built and run by a small indigenous community. You might want to hire a car to get there. Accommodations were spare but brand new at the time. Sicuani itself has a bank, internet, a few small stores, and, from what I see on this site, a hostal.
there is much to see from the train...
in cusco take a seat near a window on the LEFT side....the most spectacular one!
Fondest memory: each stop is a real indian market.....no problem at all finding something to eat .
