Living as we do in concrete jungles, a stay in a tree house in India provides a welcome break from the routine. Whether you want a rustic getaway that gives you a feel of the natural way of life or a plush dwelling where you can unwind in style, tree houses are now available across the country at prices that suit all budgets. Here are 5 must-stay tree houses in India.
Tree House Hideaway, Bandhavgarh, Madhya Pradesh
Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh is known for several things – its proximity to Khajuraho, its tiger reserve, the majestic fort and intricate bamboo weavings. One of the best ways to experience this place is to stay in the Tree House Hideaway located in the midst of 21 acres of a thick forest. Each of the five tree houses here is fitted with loungers in the balconies to give you a panoramic view of the surroundings, a mini bar and mosquito netting to keep you safe from insect visitors. The management also arranges forest excursions led by a trained naturalist or learning sessions for those interested in picking up bamboo weaving skills.
