The Skylodge is a unique set of pods that hang a 1,000 feet up a cliff in the Sacred Valley just outside Cuzco in Peru.
This set of three transparent pods are only reachable by climbing up the steep cliff on iron rung via ferrata, with the help of an expert guide. Once you arrive at the Skylodge, you can enjoy spectacular views over the valley.
The pods are surprisingly comfortable and spacious at 24 feet long. This space includes a small living area, a bed complete with cotton sheets and down pillows and a small toilet, which quite possibly has the best view on earth. Settle in and enjoy a glass of wine while your guide prepares a delicious dinner which you can eat looking out over the stars from all angles.
There are curtains provided should you need some privacy from the circling condors. In the morning you can watch the sunrise on the small platform above the pod while your guide brings you a hearty breakfast and coffee.
There are two ways to get back down to earth. Although it’s not recommended, if you wish you can climb back down the cliff on the irons rungs. Most however opt to take the exhilarating zip-line back down.
