How Can You See the Nazca Lines in Peru?

Tourists in Peru go to see two things: Machu Pichu or the Nazca Lines. The latter, located in Southern Peru, is a series of mysterious etchings that don't look like much from the ground but are a sight to behold when viewed from afar.

You have two options if you want to see the best of the Nazca Lines. You can either take a plane or pass over them, or you can climb up the observation tower.

The Viewing Tower

If you're on a tight budget, this is the best chance you'll never get to see the Naza lines. Usually, it is included in tour packages, but if it isn't, you can travel via public bus and go there via taxi, although buses sometimes stop at the tower directly. You only need to pay a small fee to go inside to climb up to see three of the Naza figures.

Via Plane

For the best view, you'll have to spend a bit more for tickets aboard a small plane.

Generally, these flights aren’t longer than 30 minutes, but in that span, you'll see the full extent of the Naza Lines. The plane allows you to see everything and see it the way many believe it was intended to be seen.

Each ticket costs roughly $80 to $100, but for a once in a lifetime experience, it's well worth it.

How you choose to view the Nazca lines mainly depend on your budget. If you have the money, then there's no reason why you should not opt for a vastly superior experience and view it from the skies. Regardless, viewing it from the tower is a wonderful experience on its own. What's important is that you don't let the chance of viewing the Nazca Lines pass you by whenever you find yourself in Peru.
