The Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines

Ica2 Days / 1 NightAdventure

Nazca Lines Tour is a leisure tour in the desert of Nazca at the south of Lima the capital of Peru, where mysterious lines are forming figures of the flora and fauna of the region. Seeing the Nazca lines falls in the bucket list of many people, but all people may not like the arduous walk to the viewing point and see only one figure, it’s well worth taken on foot; but for those who don’t want the strenuous walk and who don’t have time can enjoy the mysterious Nazca and the spectacular scenario of the neighboring hundreds of views of the Nazca region on our over flight Nazca Lines.

In the Nazca region, scattered over 500 square kilometers of an arid plateau between the Nazca River and Ingenio River, exist huge representations of geometric patterns, animals, humans figures and thousands of perfectly straight lines that go on for kilometers. The images on the ground are so huge, that the only way to fully observe them is only from the sky. Its real purpose is unknown, nobody actually knows who made them or why? Flying over the Nazca desert you can marvel looking at the perfect shape of a monkey, a spider, a while, a lizard and various types of birds, including humming birds, sea birds, and the mighty Andean Condor.
