cool to see a newly found one... how is it that it went undiscovered for so long??
I'm sorry I couldn't answer you earlier, working too many hours lately.
Is not entirely right to say the Nazca Lines can't be observed unless you fly over, but certainly is the best way. The Panamerican Highway crosses the
area right in the middle. I was in peru when I was young (long, long time ago), and used to travel around that amazing country a lot, mostly
hitchhiking with just my backpack. So as you can imagine, a plane wasn't affordable.
There is a big tower in Nazca I used to climb, from there you can see some of the lines very well. I don't remember paying for that. Also, there is a
hill in the area that people used to climb to have a good view, I don't know if that is allowed today, but in those years it was easy to get as close
as you wanted to the lines.
Here is a link about the tower I just told you.
Also, try this 360 view right from the top of the tower, there you'll see the hills I mentioned.
