The Guardian: sleep amid the Andes, Sacred Valley, Peru

Sometimes it’s not enough to just appreciate the view. To fully experience the beauty, you want to live, breathe and sleep in it. Which is why tour company Natura Vive put three transparent pods 400m up in the Peruvian Andes. The pods overlook the Sacred Valley of the Incas, near Cusco, and to reach them guests have to hike a challenging trail with the help of ziplines. Once in situ, the rewards (besides the views) are four beds, a dining area and bathroom. Yours for £210 a night.

UK Dailymail: The most terrifying hotel in the world?

The most terrifying hotel in the world? Welcome to the Skylodge – three transparent pods clinging to the side of a 400ft cliff in Peru (and you have to scale a sheer rock face to reach them)

The Natura Vive Skylodge is made up of three clear capsules hanging from a cliff in Peru’s Sacred Valley. Fearless travellers can spend the night dangling precariously, 400-feet over the heartland of the Inca Empire. To get there, you must first climb a cliff face, and in the morning, a zip wire takes you back down again
