    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....

    A small bridge is out on the way up.

    But you carry on up the big hill passed the big trees

    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.

    Check out this vdo

    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.

    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.....

    The tree House: N19.31974 E98.89017

    but the turn off is here

    3.3 kms south of the Chiang Dao bypass
    N19.31927 E98.95596
