ABOUT THIS TOUR
Cod 1076 Chauchilla cemetery & Acueducts
Price from 45 USD per person
Duration 4 hours
8am and 3 pm. from our office in Nazca
Another interesting site around Nazca is the Chauchilla Cemetery. This ancient cemetery is made of open graves in the desert with the actual mummies till inside. The field is covered with bones and graves.
The human remains are astoundingly well-preserved. The Peruvian Desert’s dry climate is of course a factor in the preservation, but burial practices also contributed to the condition of many of the corpses, some still hanging on to their hair and skin over 1200 years after their demise. T
This program includes visits to the Puquios which is an old system of subterranean aqueducts near the city of Nazca, Peru. Out of 36 Puquios, most are still functioning and relied upon to bring fresh water into the arid desert.
The 2- hour tour includes a visit to Chauchilla cemetery, located on the south of Nazca, in the middle on the desert closer to the Chauchilla valley. There you will see remains of the Nazca old culture. Also you will visit the artisan gold extraction and the work of craftsmen elaborating the finest ceramic of this part of Peru
