The Tree House

40

“So this tree house that you are taking us to, it is really a tree house, right?” we asked Abbas, our driver (and practically a guide as well, since he was the one who suggested both the wonderful hotel in Ooty and now, this tree house in Mudumalai).  If it weren’t for him, we could have never known that this resort existed.  “Yes, don’t worry,” he assured us, “it is a tree house, and you are going to love it.”

We arrived at the resort, which is a three-hour drive from Ooty, around lunch.  We met with the manager, and after what seemed to be like ages, agreed upon a package deal.  Another guy took our bags and asked us to follow him.  Walking through the well-maintained garden, we were truly impressed.  Few minutes later, we found ourselves in front of the tree house, and were very pleased with what we saw!

The house – perched up high on a tree – is made up of bamboo, thatch and wood.  It looked so pretty and peaceful up there, surrounded by so many trees.  There were five other tree houses, one located right across ours – however, it was unoccupied that day.  So basically, we were alone in that part of the resort – in the middle of the forest, where wild animals roam freely.  At that very moment, we were feeling both nervous and excited.

As I stepped carefully at each wooden step up towards the door, I was thinking about the bathroom.  I couldn’t see one nearby.  But as soon as we opened the door and walked into the tree house, we were surprised at what we saw!

    I am pleased with the way you are keeping suspense, which is just a 10% of our curiosity that we felt while getting into this forest..Awesome :)

    Let me take a wild guess:

    You either saw:
    1. Masala Dosa plate for two (lol…this is long shot, but since you were in Tamil Nadu, I thought of throwing this in)

    2. Dead bodies (if this were to be, then it would be thrilling..yumm)

    Nadia loved the tree house. I am sure the view was very beautiful. I would love to go there. What about mosquitos and other insects at night? did they bother you? why they dont build such things in Pakistan? we have so many good spots and green forests. I wish somone will get idea and build such houses here….

    • nadia says:

      Javeria, the mosquitoes bothered a little when we were outdoors, hence the need for anti-repellent lotion. But it was okay when we went to bed because there was a nice net for protection :)

      In Pakistan, our safety is the main concern. It’s really sad that such a beautiful country is going to waste.
