Jaipur, July 4 (ANI): Remember Tarzan, the fictional character in your childhood storybooks, who lived in a treehouse and you had longed for such adventure.

Part of it can be experienced, at least the treehouse part.

A Jaipur-based investor has developed a farm where he has constructed what he calls ‘Tree Cottages’.

Tourists visiting Jaipur can now look forward to more than palatial hotels where erstwhile kings of the desert state lived and enjoy an exclusive kind of lodging, as they have the option of staying in well-designed cottages set up on the branches of selected trees and experience the joys of living in nature’s lap.

The promoters of ‘Tree Cottages’ have come up with the idea to offer the tourists an unusual experience of enjoying nature up in the air in the vicinity of birds.

These ‘Tree Cottages’, in a way, provide a journey back in time when tribals lived in cottages built on branches of trees to escape wild animals.

These cottages, although on trees, have all modern amenities. They are equipped with modern gadgets like telephone, satellite TV and Internet and laced with air conditioned comforts. To bird lovers these cottages offer an opportunity to enjoy the chirping of birds in nests located at arms length.

The developer of the tree house has plans to build a resort in Jaipur complete with 23 treetop cottages.

“I have always been inspired by nature. When I saw these trees, I thought that making a house under the tree is a common phenomenon. But to make a house with the birds in the trees is something unique. So that when people wake up and look out of the windows, they could be facing the birds. I have fixed glasses on rooftops so that people can see and live with nature,” said Sunil Mehta, Developer of the Nature Farms.

Once the construction of all 23 tree houses is complete, this destination would become one of the rare places in the world having the cluster of over a score of tree houses at a single place providing unique lodging facility to 50 guests at one time.

As per the plans, this project is likely to be completed by the end of this year and will cost around ten million rupees. (ANI)
