Nasca Lines Brief Introduction
The Nasca Lines lies in the southern coast of Peru, some 400 kilometers away from the city of Lima.
The desert containing the lines stretches over 50 kilometers between the dry valleys of Nasca and Palpa.
There are more than 1,000 straight lines, as well as dozens of geometric shapes and over 300 drawings.
Since their discovery in the 1920th, researchers have found a great collection of figures, most of them over 2000 years old.
Among the figures, one can see a clear shape of a monkey, a spider, a whale, a frog and human beings.
In addition, there are countless geometric forms that resemble airstrips and hundreds of lines running in all directions.
Perhaps the most striking figure of all, is the Astronaut, a strange creature with a large head and big eyes.
Unlike the other figures, the astronaut was drawn on a hillside and not on the surface of the desert.
Moreover, each figure, even such sophisticated motifs as a pelican or killer whale were executed in a single continuous line.
The enigma of the Nazca Lines still baffles scientists around the world. Nobody actually knows who made them or why?

Nasca Lines Flight Guide
Before boarding the airplane, the pilot provides safety instructions as well as tips to enjoy the flight.
We fly over the desert in a small plane, which has 5 seats, plus pilot and co-pilot seats.
Each passenger has a seat next to the window, therefore riders get a better view from the above.
The pilot flies the plane in circles over each figure.
First, we fly on the left side and then on the right side, giving passengers an equal opportunity to view each figure through the window.
The flight lasts 35 minutes and passengers get to see 13 figures, as well as various geometric forms and hundreds of lines.

Have you ever heard about the Palpa Lines?
The Palpa Lines are a large group of drawings located to the north of Nazca, on both sides of the Palpa Valley.
Unlike the Nasca figures, the Palpa Lines seem to be much older, and most of them are found on large natural platforms.
At the Palpa desert exist various human representations, on which stands out a family group etched on a hillside.
In addition, there are also representations of marine birds, an older representation of a hummingbird, animals and even weapons.
Perhaps the most spectacular of all, are the geometric shapes, huge images etched at the top of the mountains.
Our company offers especial flights over the Palpa Lineas, and also organize land expeditions to the Palpa desert.
