Book cover 2021


There are no credit card machines available at Skylodge Adventure Suites. It's also important to know that even though the experience is already paid for, you may want a bit of cash.

There is a small shop on site if you would like any souvenirs. Tips are also accepted, so cash is something you will definitely want to bring. Soles are the official currency in Peru, so make sure you exchange some money before going.


You will need two outfits (or 3 if you don't want to sleep naked), as you will spend one afternoon climbing up, and the next day descending. Sneakers are a must, and clothing should be comfortable. It can get chilly at night, so make sure to bring a sweater.

Photography Equipment

With this being a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will without a doubt want to capture the entire thing to be able to look back on later, and to show your friends.

An action camera (like a GoPro or Insta 360) is a great camera to have, so you can take videos climbing, It is also a good idea to have a chest strap, or head strap, so that you don't need to actually hold the camera while climbing.

If you don't have a GoPro, we definitely suggest a wide lens, so that you can get great shots inside the capsule. Another awesome thing to bring is a drone (if you have one), as you can get a great shot from outside the capsules, and create epic footage.

Having a wide lens will allow you to truly capture the full capsule.

Another thing to keep in mind, is that you may be with just one other person in your capsule, and if you want pictures together, a tripod will be your best friend in order get those perfect shots together.

Finally, we highly recommend having a drone! We flew it from our capsule and it got absolutely incredible footage. We use the Mavic Mini Pro 3, but also recommend the Mavic 3 Pro.

Tips for Visiting the Capsules of SkyLodge Adventure Suite in Peru

Here are a few things to keep in mind when booking a stay at the Skylodge Adventure Suite in Peru.

Bring Cash

As we said, SkyLodge Adventure Suite only accepts cash. We suggest bringing between 135-170 soles for the tips, and if you want a T-shirt, postcard, or other small souvenir.

Adjust to the Altitude Beforehand

Cusco and all of the surrounding areas have an extremely high altitude, which need to be adjusted to before doing any extreme activities.

Being that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you wouldn't want to spend it being sick! Give yourself a few days to adjust to the altitude, take altitude sickness tablets, and drink lots of mate de Coca.

A great way to help altitude sickness is by drinking Mate de Coca.

Pack Light

Make sure you are not over-packing! You will only be there for 24 hours, and it is not a fashion show. A small backpack will definitely do.

Book Well in Advance

This place is sold out sometimes months in advance! It's very important to get your confirmation of the date and everything, so you can schedule your travels accordingly.
