The Nazca Plain or Nazca Desert is a desert located on a plateau in Peru. It runs from the Pacific Ocean coast to the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The plain contains the Nazca Lines and lies near the town of Nazca. The entire desert extending along the coast of Peru from the north to the south, including the Nazca Plain, is also referred to as "Sechura Desert".
In 1957, Indiana Jones and Mutt Williams, led by a riddle in a cryptic letter from Harold Oxley, flew two Peru in order to find the Crystal Skull of Akator. When the airplane approached Nazca, it flew across the Nazca Plain and the Nazca Lines were visible from above.
After they had found a clue in Oxley's Zell in the Nazca sanatorium that the skull was to be found in Orellana's grave, they went to Chauchilla Cemetery which lay on a cliff from which the Nazca Plain and the Nazca Lines were visible.
