Sphinx Eyrie
A rocky outcrop resembling the head of a sphinx takes on the aspect of a lonely sentry against a blue sky. Nestled upon the slopes overlooking the Knuckles Valley is Sphinx Eyrie Eco Resort. It offers travelers a simple yet comfortable location from which to explore a truly unique habitat. 

The multi-level resort connected via steps hewn out of rock, provides Tents and Cottages as accommodation with running water. The warm glow of candlelight welcomes the onset of night at Sphinx Eyrie, the pin pricks of light piercing an otherwise impenetrable darkness.
