Arica to La Paz railway is a historically and technically impressive international railroad connecting Chile and Bolivia. The railway passes through 205 kilometers in Chilean territory and 208 kilometers in Bolivia. Today, the Chilean side is entirely in service. However, passenger trains run only from Arica to Paconchile (Km 36.8) and sometimes to Central (Km 69.8). In Bolivia there are two weekly Ferrobuses (Buses on rails) going from Viacha, near la Paz, to Charaña at the Chilean Border.
