Vanya, means `Wild' and the name in itself portrays the location of our standalone Tree house. This is dedicated to those who are adventurous and would love to be up, close and personal with Mother Nature. It is located in a 10 acre hillside filled with organic plantation and gigantic trees ,adjacent to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, in Thekkady, and is the best place from where you can get a glimpse of the variety of wild animals roaming in their natural habitat. Accessible only by an uphill trek for the last kilometer, guests are taken on a 4 X 4 vehicle till the base camp. From the base camp you need to trek uphill for a kilometer to reach the drawbridge which takes you to the Tree House base. Every evening this drawbridge is folded back and then you are safe there.
