Nature Observatorio is located in the Gandoca Manzanillo national wildlife refuge, on the Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. It is built on an ideal, strong well-positioned tree, high in the air but without harming the tree in any way, even a single pin didn’t used for constructing the building. The forest is still untouched and undisturbed by the human being and the tree house has been built without altering the nature.
To exploring the beauty of the deep jungle, you will have to go by foot and it will take only fifteen minutes. This jungle is home to parrots, monkeys, jumping poison-dart frogs. You will get the opportunity to go for a walk and work with the local Indian tribesmen and know about their traditional ways of coexisting with nature.
Nature Observatory Project:
This project is quite simple and truly unique. It was built to prove that the living tree is more valuable than a dead tree. In modern time trees are usually cut for developing city and industries, to make a cow field or banana plantations, or to make products and tropical rainforests are disappearing day by day and it is damaging the ecosystem of the Planet Earth. This Nature observatory is trying not only to protect the tree but also to study their high environment.
The entire structure weighs only 2.200kg and its light enough and removable. There are two comfortable bedrooms in the upstairs and downstairs is used for viewing platform. In this tree house solar energy is used for the electricity need and rain water is stored for water needs. This tree house has an elevator that is used to pull the guests up and if anyone wants to climb, they can use their own power. If you want to reach another 30m above to the very top of the tree, you can access by a hatch in the roof. You will feel amazed by watching the jungle view from high above the treeline and will have the memorable rewarding experience.
