Treehouses are wooden houses built on the top of the trees at a height of 20 - 30 meters above the ground. These treehouses are constructed on treetops using eco-friendly materials like coir mats, bamboo poles, and hay straws. In Kerala, treehouses are known as Erumadam and are built over tall sturdy trees overlooking the forests. Traditionally, the treehouses were built by tribal people and hunters to escape from wild animals.
