Peru's mountainside "adventure suites" look perfectly vertigo-inducing.
Vertically inclined travelers in Peru's Sacred Valley now have the option of waking up 1,300 feet up a cliff face.
The Natura Vive adventure company has rigged three pods they call the Skylodge Adventure Suites on the side of mountain outside Cusco, where for $290 you can spend the night in a translucent plastic shell where not looking down isn't really an option.
The journey there is no billy goat trail.
Guests have the option of the Via Ferrata route ("Iron Way" in Italian), which involves crossing a hanging bridge suspended some 600 feet above the valley floor and climbing up a series of iron bars drilled into the rock face, or taking what Natura Vive refers to as the "intrepid path toward the ziplines.
" The suites themselves look quite cozy.
Two are for guests (the third is a service pod), which between them sleep eight.
Each has a small dining area and an even smaller bathroom.
The guardrail-free roof platform makes "getting some air" look like an iffy proposition, so it may be best to stick with the view from inside.
