Cahuachi Archaeological Site Tour

Cahuachi Archaeological Site Tour

The Peruvian desert holds the most secret places and mysterious stories of the country, where many riddles will remain unsolved but their legacy will prevail for even more centuries. Cahuachi was a sacred place hidden in the Nazca pampas, an extensive worship center lost hundreds of years ago.

The Nazca people surely left a mark in our country - literally - since they used the Pampas de Jumana as an open canvas for their giant geoglyphs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site yet to be deciphered.

Although most travelers may think that the Nazca Lines are the only thing to do here, there’s so much more to know and to explore that you would hate missing during your trip. The Cahuachi Archaeological Site, for example, is the largest construction known built by the Nazca culture.

Luckily for you we have prepared a private itinerary so you get to uncover all the mysteries hidden in this once sacred location. Learn everything about this experience here!

About the Excursion

The private tour will take you on an expedition through the Peruvian desert, where you’ll get to visit one of the most important archeological findings in the region.

The ancient structure of Cahuachi dates back to the 1st century. It is located in the Nazca river valley, 28 kilometers away from the main city. It was also built by the Nazca civilization and served as a ceremonial center.

Thanks to the hard work of many archeologists, different artifacts were found in this construction, where textiles and clothes stand out due to their complexity, patterns, and colors. Check this blog for more information about Cahuachi.

Important Note: You can schedule this activity at any time of the day. Also, you could combine this visit with the Flight Over the Nazca Lines. Contact our travel agents for more information.
