An unbelievable adventure and one of the most memorable experiences you could ever have in Peru.
You can find Skylodge Adventure Suites in the Sacred Valley just 15 minutes from Ollantaytambo: it’s a sort of hanging camp at the summit of a 400 meter mountain.
It’s quite an adventure and to get there you have to climb up a rock face, the face has steel hooks embedded in it to help you and a fixed steel wire rope secures climbers for the whole ascent. This is known as a via ferrata and the climb takes almost four hours. When you get there you can spend the night on the summit.
What matters is a desire to get there and comfortable clothes that do not impede your movements.
If you decide to spend the night on the mountaintop, get ready to sleep in a suspended transparent capsule that can accommodate up to four people, where you can watch the stars and admire the scenery until dawn. Not recommended for those who are afraid of heights.

Every hanging module is made from aerospace alloy and high-strength polycarbonate. They have up to four beds with feather duvets, a dining room, and private bathroom. You enter through a hatch in the top of the capsule, which has six windows, four ventilation ducts, and lighting – all completely environmentally friendly. Once inside you can take your harness off for greater comfort.
