Skylodge Houses Adventurous Travelers in Glass Pod Clinging to a 400-Foot Cliff
It seems like everyday there's a new article with awesome photos boasting how someone designed something totally revolutionary for a home. Now I've seen my share of awesome and incredible homes, especially now with the advent of tiny homes, people are getting incredibly creative... but after seeing this post I'm truly blown away. This skylodge houses adventurous travelers in glass pod clinging to a 400-foot cliff. Now for all of you out there who enjoy a bit of an adrenaline rush, this might be the perfect getaway . Just when I thought I'd seen it all, this incredible skylodge came my way.Located at the Natura Viva Skylodge in Peru's Sacred Valley "This isn’t a typical vacation, and it definitely isn’t for those with a fear of heights. Here, guests sleep in a transparent glass pod that clings to the side of one of the valley’s highest peaks. But before they even get to their accommodations, travelers must climb a 400-foot cliff face."This adventure sure isn't for the faint of heart, as it's not exactly a walk in the woods. Instead it's a hike, various ziplines across mountainous territories, and finally an arrival at these small but spacious pods hanging off the side of a cliff. You are dropped off at your destination, and later guided back to the common world where you're rewarded with a dinner and some wine. Sounds like a pretty great deal!
It's incredible the ingenuity of the design. "The Natura Vive Skylodge consists of three capsule suites that can house a total of eight people. Each pod is constructed from aerospace aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate, and it’s surprisingly spacious. The 24-foot long and 8-foot wide space has room for high-quality bedding, a dining area, and a separate bathroom with an eco-toilet and sink. Suites also include curtains for privacy from other guests and curious wildlife."
