'A Home in a 1000 year old banyan tree' is what best describes the Shola Periyar Tree House. At the height of 20 feet and surrounded by the plantations of tea, coffee, cardamom and pepper, the Shola Periyar Tree House was built using the ancient techniques and expert skills of the native tribal craftsmen.
It is located at Kumily, Thekkady, Kerala, India, which is almost 28 kilometers away from the Munnar towards the top station.
The Eco-friendly Shola Periyar Tree House is just like a home, away from your home. It is equipped with modern facilities like bed, bathroom with flushable toilets, wash basins with running water and shower. The sit-outs or the carpeted balcony is an apt location to admire the beauty of nature. The Tree House is completely void from the facility of television, music system and other electronic devices.
The chirping of the birds, swaying of the trees and the rustle of the grass would be the only sound heard. Even the lighting in the Tree house is done with the help of the hurricane lamps and kerosene oil. The Tree House is constructed with locally available raw materials such as coir mats, bamboo poles, hay straws, trees used as pillars etc, thus making it completely a part of the nature. The Shola Periyar Tree House will prove to be a completely different and unique experience for each and every guest visiting here.
