IT’S HARD TO decide what’s most mind-bending about these cliff-hanging glass hotel rooms—that the adventurers who would rough it enough to climb 400 feet up a mountain would also choose to glamp in a $1,000-per-night capsule, or that each of these pods somehow manages to fit four beds, a dining area, and a private bathroom.

The Skylodge Suites, by the Natura Vive travel company, are three prism-like cabins made from aerospace aluminum, suspended over the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, Peru. These things are decked out: Solar panels power the lamps, down pillows trim the beds, and gourmet meals are at the ready. Thankfully, there’s also a guide to ferry you to and fro the base of the mountain.

It’s a similar gimmick to Airbnb’s recent penthouse apartment pop-up in the Holmenkollen ski jump near Oslo, Norway. It’s glamping 2.0—lavish accommodations and an adrenaline high.
