Chiang Dao - South Side - The Treehouse

Discussion in 'Touring Northern Thailand - Trip Reports Forum' started by DavidFL, May 7, 2017.

  1. Another Saturday afternoon meander out to Chiang Dao & cruising down the highway I spotted a small sign for the Tree House amongst a gaggle of signs like geese calling out.

    the Tree House sounds new & interesting.
    So off we go, another delightful narrow winding concrete road heading for the hills.

    It soon climbs up & around

    The further up you go the cooler it gets & some impressive trees dot the road side

    but you have to think, where did all the other ones disappear to?

    more to come....

    eventually you end up in a small village & on the right is the entrance to the tree house

    The little sign is what you lok for

    & it was what I spotted on the highway.
    Go down the step driveway & try to find somewhere to park your bike = it's not designed for big motorbike parking!
    Stroll back up the driveway & go behind the bamboo fence & hey presto you are in the "Tree House."

    IT's a massive building with a nice deck for dining.
    They have rooms & bungalows for 750 baht.
    The location is absolutely fantastic, sitting on the edge of a ravine, surrounded by the forest.
    It's a difficult place to get photos because it is all quite compact & hemmed in by the forest.
    I'd like to go back for the night with the GF - it's the hideaway place, hidden in the jungle where you might go for a romantic night.

    wait until the end where there is some drone images so that you can really see how fantastic the place looks & the location it is.

  4. Nice find, dfl.
     
  5. How to get there, any coordinates?
     
  6. Sorry I’ve been keeping that till last to post with the Google Earth view, but I’m still having trouble with Google Earth mal-functioning.
    I have no idea what the problem is, but it stopped working a month ago, & even after a reformat & new installation I can’t get it to work properly.
    So.....
