The highest railway line in the world is in Peru. This railway line starts at Callao on the Pacific coast and climbs rapidly up the Andes mountains to La Oroya, 4816 m above sea level! As the train climbs up the mountains the air pressure falls. Many passengers feel ill and they need oxygen masks and the attention of nurses who always travel on the trains.
