This Glass Suite on a Peruvian Mountainside Is the Ultimate Room With a View
The vertiginous SkyLodge Adventure Suites at Natura Vive gives guests impressive and unique views of Peru’s sacred Incan valley. The valley was once an important location for the Incas to grow Maize. Today it’s full of archaeological and natural wonders.

The suites, which are each capable of sleeping up to eight people, offers guests a chance to experience the mystical valley at night when no one else is around. However just because guests are sleeping in a remote location does not mean they need to give up creature comforts. The suites all include a bathroom, dining area and “fine quality mattresses.”
But to even access the lodge is a bit of an adventure. Visitors must either take a zipline or climb a 1,300-foot hike, which involves crossing a hanging bridge that’s suspended 600 feet above the ground. Guests are encouraged to travel light as their luggage must go with them on the hike or zipline.

How to Get There
You can climb up about 1,300 feet — or take a zipline.
Either way, it's an adventure.
But once you get up here, you're sure to feel like you've gotten away from it all.
Seriously, away from everything.
Breakfast, dinner and transportation to and from Cuzco is included.
The valley is full of natural and archeological wonders.
And it's easy to simply wonder at the view.
If you're afraid of heights, though, this isn't the lodge for you.
If you can stand the height, you won't get a better view of Peru's landscape than right here.
Nighttime is almost as impressive as day.
And this is probably the most interesting dining setup most people will ever experience.
Sunrise and sunset aren't to be missed.
All the Stars
And neither is the nighttime view.
It's sure to offer a restful night's sleep (as long as you aren't thinking about the height).
