where you will travel 160 miles on the Pan American Highway until you arrive ( 10:30 a.m. ) the Bay
of Paracas. Here you will check into the local San Andres Airport and the wait for your departure
time on the local flight. After a short wait you will board your flight for your overflight of the
Nazca Lines. ( note the total flight time takes about 1:50 minutes take off to touch down back at
the local San Andres Airport. ) These desert drawings date back somewhere between 200 B.C. & 600 A.D.
Here scientists & historians have been unable to explain the reason for the huge trapezoids, triangles,
rectangles & quadrangles that stretch across miles of desert plain. The theories for these mysterious
geo-glyphics left behind by the Nazca Indians range from, the reading of the constellations to weather
forecasting and even ancient landing strips for space ships from some other planet. Though we may never
find the true reason for these incredible pieces of art that are just as mysterious as the civilization
that made them, your abilities to get a birds eye view, such as the ancient visitors may have, lets you
form your own idea on their purpose to the Indians of the Nazca plain.Afterwards time is available for
