After the beaches, hill stations and backwaters, Kerala tree houses are now capturing the fascination of both inland and foreign tourists to this land. These tree houses are usually atop 50 feet or more tall trees. Tree houses in Kerala are a part of efforts to promote eco-friendly tourism in the state.

Tree houses add value to naturally pristine environments. It offers a stay well away from the hassles and tensions of city life. Get ready for a stay in a tree house only if you are willing to stay a day without TV, computers and other electrical and electronic items.

Tree houses here are made from eco friendly raw materials like bamboo, hay, tree trunks, coir made from coconut fiber etc. The practice of building tree houses can be traced back to tribal people securing themselves from wild animals and people guarding their crops from being destroyed by elephants, sloth bears and such wild animals. Those people used very crude from of tree houses. They used ropes to reach the top.

Today tree houses are luxury spots with cushion beds, bathroom with shower etc. Tree houses today have almost everything normal to any home. You can just lay back in an easy chair to have a look at cows or deer grazing by the side of a distant valley.

A day's stay in Kerala tree houses will hang on with you for many long years. It will be first day you stay outside the confines of concrete and neon lamps. It will be an amusing stay on the laps of nature. It will be a rejuvenating experience.
