The paved road between the viewpoint and Llampos
continues to climb strongly, although the inclination is hardly
noticeable visually. The road follows roughly the old longitudinal
railway line. As the railway line does not support a steep inclination,
it must cross the new road at several points. Normally there is not much
traffic, only if the Panamericana is cut off (as shown in the photo in
2009) a greater number of vehicles are observed. .
In the Llampos sector (Atacama Region) there are large amounts of ruins and remains of mining facilities. The existence of water in the creek below (some 2 kilometers north of the railway station) increased the importance of the sector. The main road from Copiapó to Tres Puntas led by Llampos.
