A hotel room that hangs on the side of a cliff has been unveiled in Hunan, central China.
The unusual accommodation, is said to be the first of its kind in the country.
Unfortunately, although the see-through room gives unrivaled views of its surroundings, those who want to stay inside have to go rock climbing to reach it according to People’s Daily Online.
The pod, which was unveiled on May 4, has been constructed by a local youth out of 24 acrylic plastic plates and 12 aerospace strength aluminium tubes according to the report.
It measures just over 10 feet long and five feet wide – giving just about enough room for two people.
The 180kg pod has been suspended 98 feet over Baofeng Lake in the Zhangjiajie scenic area with the help with a steel pulley system, which can support weights of up to 700kg.
Both the interior and exterior have been inspired by Tujia traditions, an ethnic minority in China.
The pod is currently at a concept stage and has no toilet or catering facilities.

No. I like being alive.

No toilet? So how are you going to do it when nature calls? Just let yourself go in the capsule for the next customers to find it?
