I Couldn't Do It: Transparent Sleeping Pods Dangling From Side Of Cliff 400-Feet Up In Puruvian Valley

July 14, 2015

This is Peruvian tour company Natura Viva's Skylodge, a group of three transparent sleeping pods hanging 400-feet up on the side of a cliff in Peru's Sacred Valley. Each capsule measures 24-feet x 8-feet and includes four beds, a dining area, and a private toilet. The private shitter is key, because I would have a hard time asking a friend to hold my hands while I try to squat off the top of one of those things. There is no running water. The only way to access the pods are by a 400-foot ladder embedded in the cliff, a treacherous hike, or a series of ziplines. Obviously, I would take the ziplines. I don't care how romantic the view is, somebody who just climbed 400-feet up a ladder or hiked to one of these things is going to have a river of sweat flowing between their buttcheeks, and that's a mood killer. Don't let that happy young couple in the pictures fool you, they only dry-humped at best.

Hit the jump for several more pictures and a video tour, including people climbing the 400-foot ladder to get up there (right around the 1:00 mark).

Thanks to Marcus O, who prefers his accommodations a little more ground floor. Same, anything over two stories and I'm afraid I'm gonna sleepwalk out a window.

    Meanwhile; authorities are investigating the unexplained disappearance of 3 pods from the 'London Eye'. Whilst the loss is assumed to be the result of absent mindedness, the possibility of theft has not been ruled out.

    Also despite those two aggregator websites, the company site says 400 m not 400 ft.

    All that effort to make such a cool thing and they put the dining tables at neck level.

    7Th picture looks like a toilet, but really is just a scary scary hole.

    That helmet though. You know there will be at least a few jackasses that'll take a dump in the pod and close it up for the next occupants. Don't think house keeping will be around for awhile.

    Toilet is just a seat and a hole from the website. That seems kind of ... not the best view for the pods below and downwind from the ones above.

    that's 400 METERS gw. METERS
