Casa del Àrbol

Casa del

Casa del Àrbol or “”The Treehouse”” in Spanish can be found deep in the Ecuadorian wilderness. It is a seismic monitoring station with a small house built in a tree used for observing Mount Tungurahua, the active volcano in the distance.

While the simple wooden room is a sight to behold, the real attraction is the crude swing hanging from the tree’s branches. Adventurous visitors are welcome to take a ride on the swinging seat. You are not actually swinging out over a void, but over a steep hill of about 100 feet. ”
