Breakfast with a bird's-eye view

This is the high life.

At the Skylodge Adventure Suites in the Sacred Valley in Cuzco, Peru, guests can have breakfast served to them by a guide, while perched high up on the mountainside.

However, to sleep at Skylodge, people must climb 400m of the Via Ferrata path. To leave the hotel, guests have to go down a trail through ziplines.

The Skylodge is composed of three capsule suites hanging at the top of the mountain, with a 300-degree view of the valley.

In total, there's room for up to eight people in the hotel's three capsules. Two of the capsules are divided into modules that contain sleeping arrangements for four, a dry toilet and bathroom, and a wooden folding table for meals. The third capsule is the service capsule, where guides prepare breakfast and dinner for the guests.

While experienced mountain climbers often employ suspended cots, known as portaledges, on multiple-day climbs, the Skylodge is meant for those who may not be as experienced.

The Skylodge experience does not come cheap.

At US$300 (S$420) for each person, each night, the price includes accommodation, access via a protected climbing route, ziplining, transportation to and from Cuzco in a Mercedes-Benz bus, breakfast, dinner and a bottle of wine.
