If your soul is searching for adventure, wander your way to the Amangiri Camp Sarika! The Utah retreat has recently opened doors to a new Cave Peak Stairway that is perched 400 ft. above the dessert, making it the ultimate getaway for thrill-seekers.
Although featuring a mere 120 steps, the height of the steel suspension bridge is enough to give you chills down your spine. It is located at the very end of Amangiri’s via Ferrata – an iron climbing path designed to navigate difficult mountain landscapes and can be traversed by guests at the resort with the help of a guide.
Each step of the stairway is made of thin but supportive slats of metal, connected by a skeleton of wiring. To get to the starting point of the epic stairway, adventure seekers will need to complete one of Amangiri’s via Ferrata courses, which are essentially rock climbing “trails” of metal climbing rungs sunk into the cliffs that traverse a series of red rock canyons.
Once on top, climbers will be able to get a view of 600 acres of a protected valley in remote southern Utah – a location that’s at the crossroads of Bryce Canyon, Zion, Arches, and Grand Staircase-Escalante national parks. The vistas include rugged, 160 million-year-old rock escarpments and untamed wilderness that are mind-boggling, to say the least.
