How Would You Like To Sleep On Top Of A Mountain??

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you are willing to climb to the top of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and brave cold weather, aching muscles, and even snow, then a luxurious night’s sleep might not be the top of your priority list!

However, lucky for weary climbers, Travelodge and Macmillan Cancer support decided to treat travellers climbing Ben Nevis, and teamed together to build the highest hotel room seen in the UK for almost a century!

The fantastic challenge was taken up by 38 volunteers who carried a collection of hotel room furnishings and equipment a staggering 1,344 metres to the summit of the mountain.

The last hotel room on Ben Nevis was the Temperance Hotel, which provided food and a bed for climbers during the summer months from 1894 to 1916.

The Ben Nevis Travelodge room included the luxuries of a normal hotel room. In additional to the usual Dreamer bed, complete with sheets, duvet, pillows, the team completed the look and feel of a real hotel room with walls, a picture and a comfortable chair.

The fantastic challenge raised £40,000 towards fighting cancer, which has including a generous donation from Sleepeezee, producers of the Travelodge Dreamer bed.For more information visit Travelodge

Toni’s Thoughts

I think it’s great what they did to raise money and it’s a really neat idea.  Now, if only they could figure out how to add a heater I very well might venture there myself…well if they had an enclosed something or other with heat to get me up there.  Oh who am I kidding, cold and I are not friends. For those who don’t mind cold weather and extreme adventure, would you ever like to sleep in a room on top of a mountain?

What are some of the coldest places you’ve ever visited?  How cold was it and would you go back?
