¡The most espectacular train trip in the world! Every day since 1961, El Chepe ventures into imposing landscapes of the Sierra Tarahumara, until it reaches the area that encompasses the most representative characteristics of the Tarahumara culture, history and folklore; the Barrancas del Cobre, or Copper Canyon, as this región is know worldwide.

I have been on here a week now and love the train. The food on board is expensive but quite tasty. Many amazing stops on the way, if you can afford it stay at el mirador hotel for the best views ever in your lifetime

Train is surprisingly modern with good meals. But the main attraction are the views of Copper Canyon and the native Indians.

I bought my ticket at the station in Los Mochis the day of departure. Make sure you are there early in the morning. Los Mochis is an industrial city and I didn't feel endangered at any time.
