We arrived on site, butterflies in our stomach, we had no idea what to expect... waiting for what we thought would be a lot more terrifying and a lot less fun. We were more than pleasantly surprised by the ENTIRE experience.
To start, the owner who was on site made us comfortable and assured us the journey up and the stay in the sky lodge would be worth it- "don't do it for the story, do it for the experience". We were introduced to our guides, Cesar and Americo, and by the end of the trip we wished they could hang out with us everyday. Both were extremely friendly, good spirited, and knowledgeable... and we loved them!! I will also throw in the small detail that my dad is TERRIFIED of heights, he started the climb in front of the rest of us, and had a blast. Cesar and Americo joked with him, put him at ease, and he ended up loving it- every second (even the bridge... okay, maybe not the bridge).
Once up top, the lodge was like nothing we had ever done or seen. Sleeping in a see-through capsule, about the size of a van, above beautiful beautiful green mountains and water behind us, it is truly indescribable, and the only way to understand would be to do it yourself! So do it! Face your fears, have a blast, and sleep under the stars in a clear capsule. Eat delicious food on hanging tables, hear stories from the guides about their own climbs and experiences, watch the stars late at night after you've shut off your solar powered light. And chances are, you'll come away with the same sentiment the 4 of us did... "that is the coolest thing I've ever done".
One day, I hope to come back.
