Alaska is the largest state in the United States of America, it has the size of California, Texas, and Montana combined. It's also the least populated state with a thriving natural habitat and wilderness like nowhere else. A single national park as the Denali National Park - six million acres - is the size of a whole US state. The park is famous for the 20,320-ft (6,194 m) Denali summit, which is North America's highest mountain. The large protected area of the park is a shelter for grizzly bears, caribou, moose, wolves, and countless other species.
The chalet is situated on the ridge of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater of Denali's breathtaking Ruth Glacier at an elevation of 6,000 feet (1,829 meters). Up until the completion of this mountain hut, you would have to be a climber to reach this majestic part of the Denali National Park and Preserve. Eat your cleverly rationed but rather tasteless food, and hope not to freeze during the night. Sheldon Chalet offers the same magnificent views as your tent, but you can spend the night in a plush bed, and rather than counting the icicles on your beard you can enjoy hot showers and baking hot sauna sessions. You won't need to pull open canned food, as gourmet delicacies are prepared by their world-class chef.
Accommodation is up to 10 guests, and the all-inclusive stay includes an inbound and outbound helicopter flightseeing tour from Talkeetna or Anchorage, Alaska. It's not optional, as air transportation is the only way to reach the chalet. Unless you are Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja, of course.
As of 2021, the price is $35,500 per couple for a 3-night minimum.
