Growing up gliding through the pages of ‘Enchanted Woods’ by Enid Blyton, and reading her adventurous experiences of climbing a magic faraway tree, planted a million scenarios in my head.

Drawing from experience, I am here to guide you as you plan a journey of walking into cosy built escapes, nestled amidst the lush greenery of our continent’s rich jungle getaways.

They say, “The traveller’s soul is the toughest to quench.” If you are looking for a tree house escape a few kms away from a bustling city like Mumbai, head to The Machan in Lonavla, Maharashtra. There are tree houses nestled 30-45 feet above the forest, but the choice of the height you wish to float in, is yours to make. Explore Canopy Machan, an architectural delight amidst the roaring forest experencia. Adventure begins as you step on an ‘Indiana Jones-esque’ wooden bridge that leads you to the Forest Machan. Imagine, over 400 sq.ft. of living space to dance around in air, at the top of a rich carpet of green! The open-to-sky shower is a must experience here. You can also opt to stay at the Jungle Machan. With branches sprouting from the floor of the living space and crawling out of the roof, the place is right out of a fairytale book.

‘Tread softly, you are entering nature’s home ground’

Situated in Wayanad, in God’s own home, Kerala, Vythiri Resort promises an experience of a lifetime. Situated in the mountainous district of Northern Kerala, Vythiri astounds with the sight of the lush tropical rainforest. The tree houses stand apart with constructions done by the tribes with locally sourced materials. The houses are quaintly designed with thatched roofs and bamboo walls and have access to natural spring water that uses solar energy as its power source. Speak of an ethereal tree house experience, and not one ounce of what you experience here can be termed ‘unreal’ or ‘extremely modish’. Take a halt at ‘The Hanging Bridge’ within the resort to bask in the weather’s emerald fantasy. The curtain of birds washing the tree branches whisper romance, as you soak in the spellbinding beauty of the rainforest. Grasp the essence of nature as you walk around the cottages splashed with brick’s colour, and wrap in the serenade of the Malabar Whistling Thrush’s call.

How to get there:

  • The Resort is 26 km from Banasura Sagar Dam and 45 km from Edakkal Caves.
  • It is a 5 km journey from Vythiri Bus Station, 65 km from Calicut Railway Station and 90 km from Calicut Airport.

Must Know: Please ensure that you carry light luggage as Vythiri Resort does not permit climbing up with loaded bags. If your tree house stay is a snippet of a bigger plan, you can keep the rest of your luggage safe at the reception and collect it when you check out.

The hideaway offers five tree house escapes, Mahua, Tendu, Peepal, Banyan and Palash all named after the trees that house them. Rustling leaves will make way for your arrival outside the tree houses that look like primitive tribal homes.

The exposed beam ceilings engulf these rooms in a blanket of nature’s colours that changes with the mood of the sun. Because it’s not just the hours you spend inside the room that counts, Tree House Hideaway offers an interesting dining experience with the dining hall built around an ancient Mahua tree. As you walk into the ground level of the tree, an expansive dining hall with a fireplace awaits to drive the chills of the weather away. The upper level of the tree is famously known as the ‘Watering Hole’ and serves as a bar cum lounge.
