Skylodge Adventures Suites created glass lodges hung on the side of a cliff in Peru’s Sacred Valley and if you’re brave enough, you can stay there. They are accessible only after climbing about 1,300 feet of the rock face or hiking a daring trail, criss-crossed with a zip-line network.
But once you arrive, you are treated to incredible panoramic views of the valley below and, at night, the stars nasa blanket. Inside these 24 x 8 foot pods, you get four beds, a dining area and a bathroom. The pods are made out of aerospace aluminum and weather resistant polycarbonate –so they are promised to secure and safe.
Peru’s Sacred Valley is book-ended by the former Imperial capital Cusco, and 15th century Inca citadel, Machu Picchu. The SkyLodges are positioned to allow visitors a day or two to admire the Valley, before venturing onto Macchu Picchu.
This unconventional vacation will set you back roughly $400 for one night, including private transportation to and from your lodge, equipment, guides — plus a gourmet dinner with bottle of wine, and breakfast overlooking the valley below.
For those who’d rather not stay the night, SkyLodge offers a fancy Peruvian, lunch-only experience from $237 per person.
For me, yeah, no. There’s not a back door to get in, as I said above, you have to climb up 1300 feet. For $400 a night, I’ll take the Four Seasons Costa Rica, thank you very much.
For the brave, there is more info here.
