Steam train to Zipaquira - Cultural Tour Zipaquirá - Colombia

An interesting and fun way to get out to the Salt Cathedral at Zipaquira is to travel on the Sabana Steam train from central Bogotá. The train only runs on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, and it is imperative that you head to the Estacion de La Sabana couple of days in advance to secure your seat. There is a buffet carriage on the train, but purchases here are not included in the price of your ticket. Saddle up and settle down and let the touring papayera band play their tunes as you roll out to Zipaquirá.
