This is a great little stop on the way out to the birding islands. The captain stopped for us to admire it and contemplate the effort to make it. The bird activity was impressive.

You can see this from a long way out in the ocean. It had to have some navigational implications.

People with low intelligence tend to scratch the inscription with their name on the rocks. Something similar and just as meaningless done in this place, but on a much larger scale.

A drive by and stop on the tour to the ballestas islands. It’s pretty interesting and a mystery. Kind of a bonus on the trip.

Passed this on a trip to the Ballestas Islands and whilst it was impressive (with a certain mystery over its origin), it was not anything like the Nazca lines that I'd flown over the previous day!

Just the fact that a sand drawing has survived 2000 years is amazing. But the super low rain fall in the region(30min a year) plus the constant south to north winds explain its duration. It is pointing exactly at 180 degrees south.

The cruise to the Ballestas Islands passes close by you get a good view, but no-one seems to know who made and what it stands for, other than a navigational aid.

This is the famous marker that points to Nasca and some believe it may be 2000 years old.

There is not much information other than speculation: to guide sailors, maybe for ETs, maybe a long ago important symbol.

That it has survived wind and erosion is probably its most important characteristic

On tours to Bellista island the boats pass in front of it. I have been told that it may have a slight glow in the dark, would like to confirm that some day.

We saw this as part of our boat ride to Ballestras. It was difficult to hear the tour guide and I would have liked more information about this such as when was it discovered. How old do archaeologists think it is? Who do they think made it and why?

If you are going to be here, you will make sense only if you knew what it is . It is the marking which indicates the beginning of the east direction . It is mentioned first at round 10000 BCE. Ans it is older than that . Dating pottery found around the site to 200bce does not mean the site is 200bce . The rectangle at the bottom is yagnya vedi . With this background look at it know .
