Within an hour after booking our flight over the Nazca lines we already boarded a little cessna to fly over the desert and spot the mysterious figures referred to as the Nazca Lines. The lines depict among others a monkey, a whale, hummingbirds, a human figure and a spider. Ever since their discovery a lot of speculations and theories have been developed regarding their creation and the reason for their existence. Some scholars believe that they have been created around 400-650 A D and that due to the dry climate and the isolation of the place, the lines have been preserved till today. From religious significance to irrigation schemes to giant maps, everything has been proposed but not much is proved to be true. Everything said, they make an impressive sight.
