A room with view? They don’t get better or scarier than these glass-walled pods pinned to the side of a sheer cliff-face above the spectacular Sacred Valley of the Incas. 

No one notices the room interiors – which are all-glass and with little more than a bed and bathroom. It’s all about the views – if you can get over the vertigo. The Urubamba River winds below, ridges of snow-capped peaks hover above, and the ancient Inca fort at Ollantaytambo clings to the face of the mountain opposite. 

Stays are not for the faint of heart. Arrival is by a breathy mountain climb followed by a harness ride to the pod itself (wearing a hard hat and gloves). Guests return to earth via zipline.

Salt terraces in the Andes mountain range
