Would you sleep in a transparent capsule that hangs off the side of a cliff?

At Skylodge Adventures Suites, the brave can do just that, with an overnight stay in a hanging bedroom that showcases the magical vistas of the Sacred Valley in Peru for the thrill of a lifetime.

To reach your accommodation, you’ll have to climb about 1,300 feet of the rock face, connected to iron cables by dual carabiners, ascending precariously placed handholds and iron rung ladders and handholds. Or, hike a challenging trail that uses a network of ziplines. Either way, it’s not for the faint of heart.

Keep in mind that “luxury” doesn’t mean a tame adventure, although guests have ranged in age from six to 74. It can take over an hour to navigate the cliff, pulling your bodyweight up the rocky outcroppings while your guides ensure a smooth ascent.

Yes, you might start to question why you’re clinging to the side of the mountain. That is until you start to feel confident enough to look around. If your climb is near dusk, when the sun begins to sink, it paints the sky with brilliant hues of pink and orange. At that point, stress from the outside world starts to fade away and you’re likely to feel a serene calm wash over you while taking in one of the world’s most stunning views.

Once you reach your pod, often compared to sleeping in the nest of a condor, you’ll enjoy the ultimate bird’s-eye view. When darkness falls, the frequent clear skies mean that there’s a good chance the Milky Way will make an appearance too.

For some, waking up in the morning to what appears to be certain death below would be their worst nightmare, but if you don’t have a fear of heights, you’ll definitely want to put this on your bucket list.

The pods are all handcrafted from weather-resistant polycarbonate and aerospace aluminum, measuring 8 X 23 feet. They sleep up to four and come with a dining area and shared bathroom. Packages include transportation from Cuzco, professional bilingual guides, breakfast, and a gourmet three-course Peruvian dinner with wine.

The brainchild of Natura Vive, the adventure company encourages guests to embrace their inner-adventurer while reconnecting with nature to understand what true luxury really is.

Once you’re ready to leave your pod, you’ll simply zip-wire down to the ground below.
