Sleep like a Condor in Skylodge Adventure Suite Nest 1200ft Above Ground
Now this is something. The Skylodge Adventure Suite will give you chills if you are not used with heights.
The hotel hosts guests in clear capsules suspended 400ft. on a mountain. The eco-tourism is taking off in the last decade, with everyone from companies to the governments are trying to find different ways to ensure there are many choices for everyone.
The guys from Nature Vive, a Peruvian adventure company based in Cuzco Valley, found a way to impress their guests.
They found a less impactful way for visitors to enjoy the incredible views, was to build three transparent pods, suspended 400 feet above the valley floor as accommodations.
The capsules will be accessible only after climbing up 1,400 iron rugs, set into the steep mountain face.
The transparent bubbles are made out of aerospace aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate. The 24 feet by 8 feet Skylodge Adventure Suits offer the guests stunning panoramic views of the valley below.
Nature Vive has thought about everything, even about the toilets, which are set up in separate section of the pods, called toilets with a view by the company.
Each unit has six windows and four ventilation ducts to give the interior a comfortable atmosphere, and lighting is provided by solar-powered lamps.
Although this is a kind of adventure hotel that was built, owned, and operated by two entrepreneurs who are also avid clumbers, it has lots of luxurious features.
The pods have comfortable beds and pillows, and you can get a pre-cooked dinner and a bottle of wine, brought up by the accompanying guide.
After spending the night, if the winds are not too strong, breakfast can be taken on a platform above the pods. Guests then descend from the heights by hiking and ziplining down.
At about 1,200 ft above the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, Peru you will find three transparent, hanging skylodges with incredible views and the unforgettable experience of sleeping on the side of a mountain.
To get there you can either climb up or hike to a nearby zipline and cruise in to your ‘nest’. It was opened in 2013, and has a total capacity of eight people.
Each dome has curtains for privacy but you’ll want to keep the top uncovered so you can gaze at the stars above.
Interesting, isn’t it? Would you want to spend a night at 400ft on a mountain?
