Hello Tomas!
Yes, there is a railway and a road at this pass. 4335 meters is actually of moderate height for a pass in Peru!

It's understandable that there are high saddles in Peru. But the railway at that height - that's impressive! Cheers Tomas :)

The originator and builder of that highest railway in the world was Polish engineer Ernest Malinowski, whol left Poland after the dramatic fall of November uprising in 1831.

In the spring of 1873 buliders reached the highest point at Ticilo pass at 4818 asl, as far as I know a monument stands there on the pass commemorating Malinowski.

I wonder how high reaches that Chinese line to Tibet, maybe someone know ?
