Scenic flight over Nazca Lines Peru

Nazca Lines

Etched on the Pampas de Jumana, between the towns of Nazca and Palpa, are the remarkable and mystifying Nazca Lines. Some 300 ancient geoglyphs, which date between 400 and 650 AD, depict various figures, with five being the most prominent; the hummingbird, the monkey, the spider, the hands and the astronaut. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, described as “the most outstanding group of geoglyphs anywhere in the world”, the Nazca Lines cover a staggering 1 000 square kilometres. Created by the Nazca people, no one truly knows why the geoglyphs were made – some believe that they are related to astronomy or that they were a way for the tribe to connect with their gods in the sky. The best way to view and appreciate the sheer scale of the Nazca Lines are from above on a scenic flight.
