The tree houses are the wooden cottages built over the two giant trees at an elevation of approximately 85 ft above the ground. To live in these house is an experience in itself you will cherish all your life.

    The eco-friendly locally available raw materials are used in the construction of the tree houses such as coir mats, bamboo poles, hay straws, trees used as pillar etc. Tree houses are basically modified versions of Erumadam, which were usually used by the tribals to protect themselves from the attacks of the wild animals. The Tree houses in Kerala are usually placed in the rain forests surrounded by the plantations of tea, coffee, cardamom and pepper. Indigenous techniques, skills and expertise of local tribal craftsmen are used for the construction and maintenance of these tree houses.

    A large cane baskets acts as the elevator to take you to the top. The technique is through the combination of pulleys and counter weight of water without the use of electricity and with minimum noise. The tree house can be accessed by the suspension bridge connecting the two trees. All the tree houses in Kerala are equipped with the modern features like beds, bathrooms with flushable toilets, washbasins with running water and shower. There is also a sit-outs or carpeted balconies where you can sit and relish the beauty of the surroundings in the lap of nature.

The lighting is provided by the hurricane lamps and kerosene oil.
