The tree houses of Kerala are tastefully designed wooden cottages built on top of the trees at an elevation of 20-90 ft above the ground. Built of eco-friendly raw materials like bamboo poles, coir mats, hay straw, live trees used as pillars, the tree houses in Kerala are the modified versions of “Erumadam”, usually built by the forest tribes to protect them from the attacks of the wild animals. To enhance the pleasure of your stay, all the tree houses are provided with modern amenities like cosy beds, telephone, washbasins, flushable toilets and attached bathrooms with running water/shower facilities. There is also a carpeted balcony where you can sit and enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of nature. The lighting is provided by solar energy or kerosene hurricane lamps. Food is prepared from organically grown fruits and vegetables. An indigenous cane lift is used to reach to the tree houses, which works on a unique counterweight to the water system to avoid unnecessary pollution and noise created by conventional means.

Guests can also enjoy exciting nature trails deep in the lush forests to discover the richness of the flora and fauna of the region.
