When it comes to sleep, the ideal place would be somewhere comfortable and safe. You’re vulnerable when you’re off in dreamland so you might want to make sure that nothing bad can happen to you while you’re defenseless.

This hasn’t stopped adrenaline junkies and adventurous souls from giving sleep a twist. Nowadays, you’ll find a number of death-defying sleeping accommodations in various places so you can give it a try if you dare. We’ve rounded them up below so see for yourself whether you’re willing to give them a shot.

Located in the Sacred Valley in Peru, the Skylodge Adventure Suites feature a series of crystalline pods suspended on the side of a cliff. It offers guests magnificent views of the valley below and the Milky Way at night.

Getting to the venue is a challenge, though. You can either climb up the 1,300 feet rock face or hike a daring trail that is also comprised of a series of zipline network.

2. Treehotel

Sweden’s Treehotel is composed of seven sleek and modern treehouses created by seven Scandinavian architects. Each offers something unique, making it not just a great place to stay for the night but a destination in itself as well.

It might not be as adventurous as the Skylodges but it will still let you sleep high up in the trees. You’ll get to do it in style and comfort, though.

3. Bangkok Tree House
