There are 3 options:
- You can do the via ferrata up the SkyLodge, spend the night at the Sky Lodge, zipline down in the morning.
- Spend the night in the StarLodge, but do the via ferrata up and zipline down before going over there for the evening.
- Do lunch at the SkyLodge with the via ferrata and zipline (day trip from the Sacred Valley or Cusco).
You meet at the base to get your equipment and briefing. There were 4 guides for 11 people. They have had people from 6 to 80 years old. They will take photos along the way, but they cost extra. I thought they were worth it!
We started up at 3:00pm, and it took us about 1.5 hours to go up the 400 meters of elevation on the via ferrata. At the top of the climbing area, there is a traverse across (above the SkyLodge pods) over to the ziplines.
There are 6 ziplines. The first one is short, the second one is a tandem, and the last one goes down to the base area. It took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get down.
What to Bring:
- Rain jacket
- Extra layer (it gets chilly later in the day)
- GoPro on a tether
