Flight Over the Nazca and Palpa Lines

Part I: Nazca Lines Desert.

Our tour begins with the pick-up of our clients from their hotel in the city of Nazca.
Then we drive to the local airport, which is only 5 kilometers from the city center.

Upon arrival, our guide will give you a briefing about the Nazca and Palpa Lines, including interesting theories.
Our guide will give each passenger a Map that will be very useful during the aerial tour.
The flight lasts one hour, a time in which you will be able to appreciate the most well-known Nazca and Palpa drawings.

Among the creatures, we will see the representation of a whale, a monkey, and a dog.
Likewise, you will see various birds, such as a condor, a hummingbird, and a heron, as large as 3 soccer fields.

Perhaps the most striking image of all, is the Astronaut, a strange human shape with a large head and big eyes.
Unlike the other designs, the astronaut was drawn on a hillside and not on the surface, as in most of the Nazca Lines.

After flying over the Nazca zone, we will fly towards the Palpa desert.

Part II: Palpa Lines Desert

According to the archaeologist, the Palpa Lines belong to a period much older than the Nazca Lines.
The first figure you will see is a representation of a pelican, which is located on the slope of a small hill.

Shortly after, we will reach the zone of Llipata where exists various human figures on the hillsides.
Among the figures stands out a group of human drawings, known as The Family.
It is a group of three individuals, which represent clearly a woman, a man, and a boy.

Later on, we will see a representation of a hummingbird, an old version of the Nazca hummingbird.
Nearby we will also see a big representation of a marine bird.
Finally, we will fly over the solar clock and the ceremonial knife known as El Tumi.

Eventually, we will fly back to Nazca airport.
After landing at Nazca airport, our guide will take you back to your hotel.
