THE ENIGMA OF THE NAZCA LINES

It is generally believed that the Nazca Lines were created nearly 2000 years ago by the indigenous Paraca people, but there are endless theories to explain their origin and use including suggestions that the images were astronomical maps, agricultural calendars, even messages left by visiting aliens. What we do know is that the gigantic images have been fascinating observers since their discovery in the 1930s, and that they can only be fully appreciated from the air. The Nazca Lines are located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru, about 400 km. (250 miles) south of Lima, on the Panamerican Highway. But one does not have to drive all the way to Nazca to see the lines. A shorter drive to Paracas is rather recommended. As a hub of operations to experience the Nazca Lines, Paracas is located close to a local airstrip from where the air-tours begin and is also home to the Paracas National Reserve, a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO, a pristine ecosystem formed by protected beaches and marine wildlife. To complete the beauty of the area, the nearby Ballestas Islands with their caves, arches and thousands of bird and mammal inhabitants, are a must for eco-enthusiasts that stay in Paracas.
