Situated on the westcoast of Peru between Arequipa and Lima the Nazca Lines & Pre-Inca Cemetery of Chauchilla are a must if you are traveling this area.
This visit can be combined as well with Ballestas Islands, Ica and Huacachina lagune.
This is an excellent way to travel from Arequipa to Lima if you have time and want something interesting to beak up the long bus journey. Needless to say an overnight bus is never the nicest way to travel but they do enable you to sleep during the less interesting part of the travelling time and so keep your precious hours for the the lines and Nazca cementery tour.
Bus and small aircraft for flyover of the Nazca Lines
Nazca Lines.- believed to be drawn by the Nazca culture. They are composed of several hundred figures cover designs as simple as lines to complex zoomorphic, and geometric fitomorfas are drawn in the earth's surface. The amazing thing is that these lines can only be seen in its entirety from the air, flying over the desert, which has raised major questions about the intentions and skills of their builders.
The Cementery of Chauchilla For many years this pre Inca place was looted by treasure hunters, who ransacked the place taking away all the treasures the mummies kept in their tombs for centuries. Presnetly in addition to skulls and bones, you also can see several century old tombs, with mummies, ceramic fragments and others remains scattered on the desert surface.
