The focus has been on the drawings, but when you're airborn, you see so much more the planes don't even fly over. There are patterns and markers all over the enormous valley. However, for the price, it's good to see some of the drawings and get an idea.

On driving to Nasca (from north) you pass the viewpoint and see the first lines. With the plane you see much more and it is very impressive (whatever story lies behind the lines). Not to miss.

The planes are small, as you would expect, but I got airsick from the dipping to the right and then the left, in wide, deep circles, over many of the Nazca images. Luckily I had not eaten beforehand! But, I did not enjoy the 2nd half of the flight at all -- it was too much dipping up and down... More

This was a cool flight in a small plane that held just 5 passengers, the pilot and tour guide. The pilot flew over each of the glyphs twice and circling so that both sides of a plane had a clear view. It was interesting to see the countryside as well. The lines remain a mystery and something that needs to... More

Booking your flying tickets locally can save you as much as US$25 per person. We paid US$85 in advance, the local average is US$60

We were a bit scared after reading bad press about the Nasca plane accidents, but we are glad to come here. Upon arrival to the bus station, a man came to us offering Nasca lines by Aero Paracas and a drive to the airport. We didn't want to book with this man, because I read about you get the best...

As a child I saw a documentary on the Nasca lines and found it fascinating. I never thought I would actually see them but once I got to Peru I knew I had to. A 8 hour bus journey from Lima will get you to the small town of Nasca. From here it's easy to arrange. There are a bunch... More

We rented a 4 seater plane that took us up for 30 minutes over the lines. Its a bit pricey, especially if you're backpacking, but you get unquestionably the best views of the lines, and you recognize the pure scale and scope of the endeavor it took! For those with a weaker stomach, you might get a little sickness, plan... More

It's probably one of the most amazing experiences that you can have in a plane. The lines and figures are just the incredible testimony of what was a pretty advanced civilization. Take sickness pills and don't have a strong meal just before, the movements of the plane will centrifuge your stomach :-) Worth nevertheless!!

I do not like to fly. At all. I didn't think I'd do the flight, but I sucked it up and crawled into that tiny gnat of a plane. I am SO very happy I did. What an experience!
