Best Nazca Tours
In order to survive Man has always been smart to adapt to seemingly impossible conditions to live and, Best Naca Tours will show you that the Nazca people have had to find a way to have access to water in this arid desert climate of Nazca. In the 5th century the aqueducts were built to provide for years round access to water essential for permanent inhabitation and irrigation of the area. Water running in aquifers was channeled to where it was needed using man-made underground channels. Concentrical paths leading down to these underground channels provided for direct access to the water.
In the Aqueducts of Cantalloc where is open air has an S-shaped to slow down the water flow and prevent from running too fast in times of flooding. The Nazca people also constructed access points, which still now give direct access to clean and also oxygenates the water which is surprisingly fresh.
They knew that water coming down from the Andes was flowing not only in rivers, but also in aquifers, and intelligently tapped into these essential resources. Some even argue that the famous Nazca lines actually point to underground sources of water and that the symbols are hints of what can be found in the arid soil.
