Tren del Hielo II
Ambato – Mocha – Urbina – Cevallos – Ambato
This train combines scenery, culture and shopping in a journey that takes us from the temperate valley of Ambato to the Andean high plateau – known as paramo- of Urbina, more than 4,000 meters above sea level in the foothills of Chimborazo. There, the last Ice Merchant of Chimborazo and custodian of this ancient trade awaits us. Those willing to stay overnight in this unique place can book a comfortable room at the Train Mountain Lodge.
