Tree tent was a new concept for me. I watch a lot of tiny accommodation videos on YouTube, especially Living Big in a Tiny Home where the host visits tiny homes and interviews the owners (and I wonder why I hadn’t known it already). I had seen tree homes earlier. And as mentioned already, I had experienced camping and glamping. But the tree tent was a new thing for me and I had planned that I had to experience it. So, the tree tent looks oval. Mounted around the tree with iron bars as a skeleton, the entire structure is covered with thick camping cloth. The cloth itself isn’t waterproof and for that, another layer of plastic wrap is used.
The complete enclosure makes it totally safe. This type of camping structure is usually accessed by a small ladder. The entrance has a large ziplock which can be locked for privacy. It’s robust as compared to a conventional tree house or camping tent. Since it is supposed by a tree, it stays firm, however; it does make a sound when getting in or out. But that shouldn’t be much of a concern. After a long, I was staying in such kind of accommodation in the wilderness. So, it was a wonderful and memorable way to start and welcome the New Year.
