Still worth a stop.

Report Check-In

They are now building a new, higher and bigger tower on the other side of the road. Avoid visiting at around 11 am - too many people and the guards use a whistler to tell young it is time to descend the tower- not enough time to enjoy and take pictures! 3 soles pp

Report Check-In

This one was worth stopping at. There is a place to park across the road or pull off on the wide shoulder. The three figures are restored figures and are excellent. Forget the viewing platform further north. There's not much to see.

nice stop on the way to the airport.
3 soles for 3 figures.

Report Check-In

The best spot to see the lines from the ground. You can see the tree, hands/bird and the lizard. We paid 3s pp.

The scenic flights have an alarming reputation for safety violations so, if you plan to do a flight, we were advised not to pay until we had physically inspected the plane we would be going up in. Since I have zero qualifications to determine what is and isn't a safe plane we decided to pass!

Stayed overnight at the parking lot, you can use the porta potti toilets. Of course not a very nice spot, but ok if you arrive late and are not sensible for road noises.

Price went up to 3 soles pp but gives you a good view of 3 of te drawings in case you don't want to take the plane.

Very cool view from the top. It was s/2 p/p and there are vendors outside selling stuff. One of them even spoke irish :) bathrooms across the road

2S pP to climb up for a view minutes. Had a good view as the sun was setting. Doesn't seem like a great place to stay overnight though since parking is literally right by the highway. Maybe ok for emergency.
