Went here with a tour from my hostel and learned some very interesting facts about the tombs and Warrie and Nazca people.

It was an hour's drive from Cahuachi to the Chauchilla cemetery, with the last 10 mins' drive being on dirt road. The mummies there are displayed in the open air, and if you keep your eyes peeled you can see several hands and feet with...More

Wow, this is a type of places one must absolutely go! It's amazing how local climate preserved the mumies. And strolling around you can notice bones and cloth pieces of mumies that still lay here unearthed. Spooky and inspiring at the same time.
