Will Smith Looks Relaxed on a Dangerous Train Ride in Ecuador
The ‘King Richard’ star is seen greeting fans as he is boarding a train from the famous Nariz del Diablo (Devil’s Nose) in Alausi while filming a National Geographic documentary.
AceShowbiz –Will Smith showed no fear when taking one of the most dangerous train rides in the world. The Oscar-winning actor has been spotted visiting the fearsome Devil’s Nose in Alausi, Ecuador while filming a National Geographic documentary.
In photos obtained by Daily Mail, the 53-year-old looked relaxed while sitting in the train with a cameraman filming him. He was seen sitting comfortably next to the window while gesturing his hand apparently to point something outside.
A video taken by an onlooker shows Will walking alongside the train track while being followed by the filming crew and some police officers. He was seen greeting some local people who were excited to see him, waving to them and hugging one of his enthusiastic fans.
Will dressed casually in a yellow long-sleeved shirt with khaki pants during the filming on Tuesday, August 30. He appeared to be wearing what looks like a scarf around his neck and also sported a beige baseball cap.
Will visited the Devil’s Nose for season two of “Welcome to Earth“, which will take viewers across more remote destinations. He produces and narrates the show himself.
Alausí is located in the province of Chimborazo and is famous for its railway history. According to the Ecuador Rail’s website, the Devil’s Nose has always been the most popular section of Ecuador’s train track.
The more than 452 kilometers of rails take tourists on a hair-raising trip down the rocky slopes of the Andes through some of Ecuador’s most breathtaking scenery. The trip takes about 2.5 hours in total.
The most dangerous section of the track was named the Devil’s Nose because of the many deaths among the workers that occurred there and the sheer difficulty of building it. It connects the Alausí and Sibambe stations.
In the 1990s, nearly all of the train sections had fallen into disuse and decay. The tracks have been renovated as part of the ongoing restoration of Ecuador’s rail network.
