Would you like to sleep in a transparent pod hanging from a cliff in Peru's sacred valley?
Precariously located on the side of a Peruvian mountain of Cuzco is The Natura Vive’s Skylodge Peru- a spectacular and breathtaking glass hotel, built to give guests an enthralling experience. However, you need to be brave enough to stay here, as these crystalline cabins are accessible only after climbing up around 1,300 feet of the rock face via a laddered ferrata trail or hike with the assistance of zip-line network.
And for the bravest people, there is also an open-air seating area on top of each capsule.
There are total three pods with a total capacity of eight people. Once you plan to spend your night in this lodge, you are treated to the stunning panoramic views of the dangerous valley below and the surrounding Milky Way during the night.
