Ica & Nazca Lines Tour 2 days
Nazca Lines Tour 2 Days Plus Ballestas/ Paracas Islands, Huacachina, Peruvian Winery
Nazca Lines Tour 2 days–Unfold the great enigma of the unique Nasca Lines, with the naked eye from the window of an airplane by a private guide.
On this amazing experience, you’ll spot the outlines of a parrot, hummingbird, spider, condor, dog, whale, monkey with a tail wound like a top, giant spirals, huge trapezoids, and, perhaps oddest of all. These lines are located in San José desert, which is spectacularly marked by 70 giant plant and animal figures, as well as a warren of mysterious geometric lines, carved into the barren surface. Throughout the Nasca Valley, an area of nearly 1,000 sq. km (390 sq. miles), there are at least 10,000 lines and 300 different figures. Most are found alongside a 48 km (30-mile) stretch of the Pan-American Highway. Some of the biggest and best-known figures are about 21km (13 miles) north of Nasca. Most experts believe they were constructed by the Nasca (pre-Inca) culture between 300 B.C. and A.D. 700, although predecessor and successor cultures — the Paracas and Huari — might have also contributed to the desert canvas. The lines were discovered in the 1920s when commercial airlines began flights over the Peruvian desert. From the sky, they appeared to be some sort of primitive landing strips—Nazca Lines Tour 2 days
