Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos
Besides the Nazca Desert Lines in Nazca, you may like to swing by the Cemeterio de Chauchilla. Grave-robbers had previously unearthed buried mummies and stolen all the good stuffs like jewellery and precious stones, etc.... The skulls, hair, teeth, thigh bones, etc... are all strewn all over the ground which you can spot easily.
In some of these graves, the authorities have simply dressed some skeletons and placed them there more for tidying up the place, then for authentic representation of the burial, i.e. these poses were not how the dead were buried in.
Note the hair of some of these skeletons. Long and plaited, you can definitely spot a Bob Marley.
You can easily combine a tour of the flight acros the Nazca Lines with a visit here.
