Adventure toileting in Peru's Sacred Valley

Adventure toileting in Peru's Sacred Valley

You are suspended in a purpose-built glass pod, clinging to the side of a cliff, 400m up a Peruvian mountain. Thank goodness there's a toilet! They say that spending the night in one of the Skylodge Adventure Suites is like sleeping in a Condor's nest. Unlike condors, of course, humans can’t fly. But you do wear a harness as you climb up to your pod and as you zipline back down to earth the following day, having spent the night sleeping on the edge of the world. Magnificent. The video above reveals more about this incredible experience and includes a tantalising glimpse of the toilet - a bonafide loo with a view!

Location

Skylodge Adventure Suites are in the Sacred Valley of the Incas - a.k.a. the Urubamba Valley - on the way to Macchu Picchu (which is near Aguas Calientes) and about an hour and a half from the ancient Incan capital of Cusco:

 

Proof from Google Earth that they are literally on a cliff:
