Cerro Blanco - Nazca Peru

Cerro Blanco - 2,078 M. high

Our sand boarding tour starts off with a nice trekking through the Andean Slopes, passing wonderful landscapes till we reach the summit of Cerro Blanco. Once at the top we will practice sandboard on the many whimsical dune formations that overlook the Nazca Valley. After we had been jumping from one dune to another, we will get to the steepest section of Cerro Blanco, a great slope of sand that is over 1 kilometer long. Here our sandboarders receive the last instructions of our tour leader, and eventually jump down over this great slope. It is indeed a wonderful ride, full of adrenaline that offers not only fun, but also an unforgettable experience. If you wish we also may camp at the very top of the dune and enjoy an amazing sunset, a wonderful starry night and do sandboarding at sunrise. In case you don't feel like trekking for too long, we offer an easy way to conquer the summit of Cerro Blanco…With Dune buggies !!!… You choose !!!!

SANDBOARDING ON CERRO BLANCO in nazca

Full day program

Description:

Our Sandboarding tour to Cerro Blanco is an adventure tour that combines trekking, wonderful scenery and a lot of fun. In order to do this trip easy and cool, it is necessary to leave early in the morning, an advisable time is around 4:30 am, before sunrise. Starting out at this time we will avoid the searing heat of the sun, and will truly enjoy our trek.
Our driver and tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Nazca, at the designated time and afterwards we will drive up towards the Andean slopes. After 30 minutes or so, we will reach the KM 28, a point from where we start the trek. We will walk first on a stony path, cover by cactus vegetation and other desert trees typical from this region. Our team follows usually a soft trail that makes the conquest of this huge dune much easier.
The hike is gentle at the beginning, and it gets a little tough once we reach the sandy slopes. It takes about 3 hours to get to the top. On the way we will be able to see unique sceneries of the Andes as well as whimsical dune formations all over the place.
Once we have conquered the summit of Cerro Blanco we will take a good break, have breakfast and talk about this dune formation and other important aspects. Afterwards we will learn some safety techniques so that you can enjoy your ride safely. We will start to practice on the many little dunes that are at the top, so once we have practiced enough, we will jump off. The length of this slope is about 1 kilometer, so a lot of fun should be expected. Once we have landed at the shore of Cerro Blanco, we will have to walk downhill for about 45 minutes, until a point, where our transfer back to town will pick us up.
