This an extraordinary site which has been/is being restored by an Italian archeologist. It is a vast site of what was the center of Nasca civilization. When we went there we were the only visitors, and it really is stunning. The location is about one hour from downtown Nasca along a very bumpy desert road so you really need a guide to get there, and to explain what you are looking at, as there are no written guides at the site. We employed a freelance guide called Brady Saldana who was very knowledgeable with good English. He has an active Facebook account for contact.

I'm not a amateur of guided tours, but in some cases, when it's hard to get somewhere on your own, I'm joining the group. In case of Peru I was doing it quite often. After exciting flight over Nazca plateau in the morning , I finally found a little time to take a shower and eat something before I went for another trip early afternoon. Two off-road cars took our international group to the depths of desert surrounding town of Nazca. Luckily, I could borrow pair of goggles from driver, because in other case, a rough ride through the desert in windowless car would be a real torture. Took us a while to get there, but finally we have arrived. First of all, that was a surprise to see pyramids in Peru. I knew, that there's plenty of step pyramids in Meso-America but I've never heard about such a structures, I mean pyramids, in South America. The group of over thirty of those structures was found in 1922 to the west of Nazca. Proper excavations started over thirty years later, but only three units were thoroughly researched. Unearthed structures were nothing like those from Mexico or Guatemala. First difference it was material used for their construction - adobe instead of stone and earth. Second - they weren't exactly step pyramids.They looked more like terraced hills. Erected by people from Nazca Culture, Cahuachi site, that looked quite eerie when sun hid itself behind the clouds, was used as a ceremonial centre from around 1 to 500 AD. Three excavated units contains, among the other features, kanchas, walls, passages and circural depressions Although, those pyramids weren't that impressive like their more famous equivalent from other parts of the world, still, it was very interesting to see them, and to learn some historical facts about them from our guide.

A long extremely bumpy road to get to the pyramids. Worth a look if you have the time as the archeologists do amazing work.

way out in the middle of nowhere, but once you're there its really cool to see what has been uncovered so far, get some of the history of the area, and ponder how much more is still buried right there! Gotta say that a tour is definitely the best way to see this, the road to get there is awful if not in a dune buggy and the tours are so cheap especially if you can grab last minute day-of spots that its not worth trying to convince a taxi for a very expensive ride out there

Cahuachi was a trip which brought the past back to life. Cahuachi, Peru, a major ceremonial center of the Nazca culture, based from 1 AD to about 500 AD.
We had a good guide to explain the history and also leave areas still of mystery. IN the middle of a desert so take planty of water for the area tour.

Getting there is most of the adventure! It requires a little off-roading and I was thankful to have a guide for it.

The guide I had (Marco I believe was his name?) had great information about the sites but without a guide I wouldn’t have learned anything about this place. The signage is pretty much limited to telling you the name of the part of the pyramid that you’re looking at and telling you to please stay on the path and not climb the walls. I wouldn’t call this place a “must-see” by any means but if you have the time to spend, it’s pretty alright.

We enjoyed our visit to this site, some prior reading will be helpful. I recommend doing it in a combo tour, cemetery and the pyramid.
