Terra’s Tree House was built with nature in mind. The owners of this establishment have succeeded in building something that respected the land and it shows in how they manage it as well.

Getting to Terra’s Tree House requires a 4 wheel drive off-road journey for 4 km. The journey may take up to half an hour drive passing through a number of farms and orchards, via a very narrow and bumpy trail. From the entrance arch of Terra’s Tree House, one needs to hike for about 400 meters through a log piled trail created, which may take about 10 to 15 minutes up hill (The owner’s kids take 10 minutes). It might be a bit of a challenge for the uninitiated, since the mountain trail is quite steep. Considering the luxurious fresh air and scenic view offered, you should feel free to take your own sweet time, slow down your pace, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the breathtaking views.

All of the bamboo and Nipah palm leaves (Atap) used to construct the Tree Houses were built by the natives (Orang Asli); and carried all the way up hill. Water is supplied directly from a mountain via a hidden stream, and electricity is powered by a generator between 6 am to 10 pm.
