Airport Nazca

Today on our agenda: a flight over the Nazca Lines. The (actually the only) way to see, watch this mysterious lines.

We went to the airport of Nazca. We booked our flight in advance (paid US dollar 75) for a flight of about 40 minutes (for more information: www.alasperuanas.com).

 

‘Our’ aircraft took 5 passengers (plus the pilot). Although I had some moments of ‘strange feeling’ I didn’t get sick (I heard from other groups that they had several people who had to throw up……).

 

The flight showed us the most famous figures:

  • Whale (65 metres)
  • Three point (3 kms.)
  • Owl-man (35 metres)
  • Monkey (90 metres)
  • Dog (50 metres)
  • Condor (135 metres)
  • Spider (46 metres)
  • Hummingbird (97 metres)
  • Flamingo (300 metres)
  • Parrot (230 metres)
  • Hands (50 metres)
  • Tree (70 metres)

The hands and tree we saw the day before from the observation tower.

 

After this experience I spent a lovely, quite afternoon in the hotel garden (some of my travel companions went for a bicycle tour and had a good time too!!).

I missed half of the figures because of my infamous travel sickness...especially in small planes making all kinds of turns!
