very relaxing, scenic trip Nov 26, 2008
The train to Puno is an enjoyable and relaxing way to travel between Cusco and Puno on Lake Titicaca. The journey lasts an entire day and the train only leaves two times a week from Cusco. The seats are very comfortable and all face a table in groups of 2 or 4.

The journey follows a river as you head up the mountains with spectacular views of the countryside and surrounding mountains. A brief stop at a small market at the pass and then a delicious lunch was provided. We also saw a fashion show and got a free Pisco Sour. There are two passenger cars and an observation car. The last car has a small bar area and the back is open so you can get a clear view of the scenery. A light tea service is included in the afternoon.

The train leaves Cusco in the morning and arrives in Puno around suppertime. All luggage is handled by train personnel so you don’t have to worry about it during the trip. It is about the same cost as flying and takes longer, but it was nice to have this day to relax and see the scenery.

It was about $150 US when we went, but it looks like it went up to $220 for 2009.
