Alausi is one of the towns you pass when riding the train ' El Nariz del Diablo'. The old station is still in use and you will be able to hop off or on the train in Alausi. Alausi is a traditional Andean town, with an interesting Andean market to visit on the day the train comes through. 

On other days Alausi slows down and becomes a sleepy town with not much to do for tourists. In the station the people of the tourist information center will try to be very helpful (only Spanish), but the fact remains: there is not much going on in Alausi, unless it's market day. 

If you do get stranded in Alausi on a random day, go hiking or go for a day of horseback riding. The tourism information office will be able to point you in the right direction. The view from the chruch is also worth the hike.
