Life in a Treehouse

Some people prefer going to a beach for a vacation for the sun and sand. Some people choose urban cities for the vibrant nightlife, fascinating museums and incredible art galleries. Some like hill-stations for the scenic view and lazy days spent relaxing. However, there is more to holidays than these usual spots. And an interesting option is a treehouse!

Treehouses are platforms or buildings constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. Tree houses can be used for recreation, work space, habitation, and observation or as temporary retreats. They are mostly situated in lush green areas, providing an excellent view of the surrounding nature for the ones living in the treehouse. Keeping in mind this current trend and the increasing popularity of holidaying in treehouses, many commercial developers have taken up similar projects. Resorts and hotels located in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan have become especially well-known for the same. Private treehouse owners have also started renting out their such properties to tourists and vacationing families.
