Tree House

 Terra Tree House Introduction:
和平農場樹屋介绍:

Welcome to Terra’s Tree House. Terra’s Tree House is located deep into the mountain region of Cameron Highland. 
 

In order to preserve this wonderful, beautiful and tranquility land, we refuse to use any machine for land leveling and massive agriculture development purposes. Up holding our vision of providing more people with the opportunity getting closer to our Mother Nature, we have strived to remain its original appearance at best.

Getting to Terra’s Tree House requires a 4 wheel drive off-road journey for 4 km. The journey may take up to half an hour drive passing through numbers of farms and orchards, via a very narrow and bumpy trail.
From the entrance arch of Terra’s Tree House, one need to hike for about 400 meters through a log piled trail created, which may take about 10 to 15 minutes up hill (The owner’s kids take 10 minutes, indeed). It might be a little bit of challenging for people who do not exercise at a regular basis, since the mountain trail is quite steep. Considering the luxurious fresh air and scenic view offered, you are much welcome to take your own sweet time, slowing down your pace, breath in the fresh air and enjoy the breath taking view! It is definitely better for one to bring along a lightweight backpack instead of trolley luggage.
All of the bamboo and Nipah palm’s leaf (Atap) used for our Tree House construction were built by our native people (Orang Asli); carrying them all the way up hill through exactly the same route you’ve just been through from the Arch to our premises.
歡迎來到和平農場的樹屋,樹屋位於森林裡,而建造樹屋最初的概念,正因為這裡山勢較陡,我們不想動用機器把土地剷平以做大規模的農業用途。樹屋,也許可以讓更多人有機會親近森林,大自然。

進入樹屋的交通並不方便,離開大路以後,有一段4公里窄小顛簸的小路,需依靠四論驅動車才能進入,這一段路大約需半小時。


之後,需依著我們建好的森林步道徒步上山,這一段山路大約400米,需15分鐘。(對於和平農場的幾個小瓜來說,10分鐘就可抵達)。對好些平日較少運動的人來說,這可算有點吃力,但是山裡空氣清新,正是平日沒有機會運動的朋友勞動筋骨的好機會,可以慢慢走,感受森林的氣息。
當你們終於來到山上,觸目所見,地板,四壁的每一根竹子,每一片屋頂上的聂帕榈叶(Atap,都是這裡的每一個工作人員,還有早期負責建造樹屋的原住民朋友依著您剛剛走過的路徒手徒步抬上山的。

Terra Tree House Facilities:

There are six Tree Houses, a main Activity Hall, and a common Kitchen right next to the activity hall.






The water supply is directly brought in via a hidden and clean mountain stream. Electricity is powered by our generator, available at limited hours from about 6:30 to 10:30 pm.
