Transparent Sleeping Capsules Suspended Above Peru’s Sacred Valley

Hanging from a sheer cliff face in Peru’s sacred Valley of Cuzco, three transparent capsules have been installed, providing accommodation for particularly intrepid guests. To reach the sleeping pods, lodgers must first climb 400 feet (122 meters), or hike an challenging trail using ziplines before enjoying the impressive views of the mystical valley.‬ ‪

Three transparent capsules have been installed on the cliff face.

 

Clinging to the rock face, the Natura Vive Skylodge is composed of three capsules measuring 24 feet in length and 8 feet in height and width. Each unit is handcrafted from aerospace aluminum and weather resistant polycarbonate, and comes complete with four beds, a dinning area and a private bathroom — separated from the bedroom by an insulated wall.
