Journey Name: Chihuahua to Los Mochis  |  Journey Duration: Scenic Day Trips
 
Overview:
Every day since 1961, El Chepe (as this unique train is familiarly called), ventures into the imposing landscapes of the sierra Tarahumara, until it reaches the area that encircles the most representative characteristics of the Tarahumara culture, history and folklore: the Barrancas del Cobre or Copper Canyon, as this region is known worldwide. Four times bigger than the Colorado Canyon, this magnificent Mexican landscape serves as the backdrop of one of the most spectacular journeys in the world. The most modern and comfortable passenger train in Mexico will afford you the most memorable ecoturism experience in the country.
