At 8 hours south of  the Peruvian Capital Lima you will find the Nazca Lines. Mysterious landmarks that cover the surface close to the dessert city of Nazca. Lines that depict figures. One a cat, one a hummingbird, one a pair of hands and several hundreds more images. They cover an area of 500 km2! Most of them just simple lines, but some of them span up to almost 300 meters. No one can tell with 100% certainty why these lines were created.

Fact is that you can observe them from high above taking a flight over the Lines. Take a bus from Lima, Arequipa or Cusco to the town of Nazca. Here a plane will be awaiting you. You will fly over the lines in a Cessna (max 6 passengers) for 30-40 minutes. Now, this is not meant for people with weak stomachs. It is a small airplane and the flight will be bumpy. (more…)

Sandboarding in the Desert of Huacachina in Peru
Monday May 12, 2014 - Posted by

In Cusco – where I’m living for a while as I’m doing my internship in Peru at Dos Manos Travel Peru – there are a lot of possibilities for amazing multiple day trips. Because Peru is a country with such big distances, it is not uncommon to be on the road for sometimes 10 hours or more to reach your destination. With a couple of days to my disposal I decided to make a trip to the desert of Huacachina, at the southern coast of Peru. It took a 17-hour bus ride to get to Ica, close to Nazca, known from the famous Nazca lines. From Ica, I had to take a taxi that took about 15 minutes to reach Huacachina. I absolutely dreaded the bus ride but knew that if I ever wanted to get anywhere in Peru, it was necessary. Several people told me that Huacachina was something totally different than Cusco, which is located in the Peruvian highlands. One the most fun things to do in Ica and Huacachina, is sand board and take a buggy ride. So it was time for me to pack my weekend bag and take the exhausting bus ride.
