The Ela Ecoland Experience: Stay in a Treehouse in Munnar!
The interest in Erumadam was revived with eco consciousness among the stakeholders of tourism in Kerala. Ecotourism is still in its infancy in Kerala, even though there are well known wildlife sanctuaries like Thekkady and Muthanga and hill stations like Vythiri in Wayanad that attempt to draw the ecotourists.
Treehouse is one of the most nature-friendly ways to promote ecotourism. Unlike Wayanad, also in Kerala, Munnar has very few treehouses that cater to the modern day tourist. An exception is the lofty perch at Ela Ecoland. With its abundance of tall and sturdy trees, and a vista so magnificent, treehouse sits perfectly, almost inconspicuously atop five majestic trees.
Quite different from the image of roughing it out in a crudely constructed thatched hut on tall trees, The Treehouse at Ela Ecoland offers all the creature comforts sans perhaps the swimming pool.
The Treehouse at Ela Ecoland is an exciting change from the brick-and-mortar hotel room for the world-weary traveller. Exclusivity and privacy is a given. The feeling of being nestled by wizened trees adds o the charm. Honeymoon in Kerala will be incomplete without a couple of nights atop The Treehouse at Ela Ecoland.
While The Treehouse is the favorite of Honeymoon couples, it’s equally popular with those who want to rekindle the romance a second time.
The Treehouse of course is a natural choice for the birdwatcher to start his day with. With guided birding tour packages on request, the budding ornithologists can have a field day in the nearby Mankulam forests and return in the evening to experience a night just like our feathered friends.
For the adventure tourist, The Treehouse at Ela Ecoland should be the natural choice. The unparalleled experience of staying close to nature and enjoying the sights and sounds will be a soothing experience before the adrenalin rush that’s awaiting them.
Typically, the itinerary of a guest at the Treehouse includes other popular destinations like Alappuzha (Alleppey, known for its backwaters and houseboats), Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram), Kovalam, Kumarakom, Thekkady (Periyar Tiger Reserve), Thattekad (Dr Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary), Vythiri (Wayanad), Malabar and Varkala.
Tip for Group Travellers
Large groups or families on vacation typically book the cottages at Ela Ecoland for an extended stay and take turns at experiencing the magic of treehouse. Even though Ela Ecoland is a boutique nature resort with exclusive accommodation, accommodation for large groups can be arranged in affiliate hotels, resorts and homestays, ensuring a worry free holiday without the hassle of coordinating accommodation at multiple places.
