What to see:
The Nazca lines, some over 2,000 years old, have blown away historians and archeologists for hundreds of years, and even today there is no conclusive agreement as to how or why they were created. If you are on a budget and can’t afford a Nazca Lines flight, you can still see some of the Nazca Lines by climbing the observation tower. Every Peruhop pass travelling through Nazca includes this short stop (in a quite unreal place in the middle of a desert) and the entry to the viewing tower.
The tower gets you 13 metres (43 feet) off the ground – enough to get the basic outline of three of the Nazca figures. Your photos won’t be as impressive as when you get on the plane, but this is a much more up-close-and-personal way to see the lines. On top of that our Peruhop guide will give you information on the intriguing history behind the ancient Nazca culture and ongoing theories behind these mysterious Lines.
What to bring:
- Summer clothes and a light jacket cause it can get windy
