Travelling to Nazca
It is very hard o talk about Nazca and not use the word ‘lines after it. The ancient geometric lines crisscross the Nazca desert and are accompanied by enigmatic animal geoglyphs. The history of the formation of these lines has been a great-unexplained mystery until date.
Pre-Inca civilization that lived in the Pampa are said to have been the creators of these great etchings. Peru tourists can witness the greatness and the uniqueness of those massive animal drawings that are visible only from a flight above the area.
These lines were first documented by Paul Kosok, a North American scientist, in the year 193. The area was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in the year 1994. These lines do draw thousands of tourists every year to the desert town of Nazca.
The sun-baked plain that is located near the desert town of Nazca, Peru. You can visit the site on your way from the machu pichu. In addition, there are many other interesting ancient wonders here that bring before you, the remains of a once great civilization.
The Inca ruins, vicuña sanctuary, an ancient necropolis, the world’s largest sand dune, Cahuachi pyramids, aqueducts and the Palpa Lines are all here. The mystery of the perfectly straight lines and the big animal petro glyphs are enchanting enough. You should take a 30-minute flight over the vast spectacular petro glyphs – but be cautious – the pilots will sweep from right to left to give you the best view of each anaglyph.
