Tree House In Tandi, JIbhi

Imagine yourself sitting on the balcony of a treehouse, sipping hot tea with an unending view of the lush green valley in front. Isn’t it soul-soothing? Such is the experience of a Jibhi Tree House Stay. 

In the last few years, there have been sudden spikes in the demand for the Jibhi tree house. And this is for a reason. They offer you a serene experience away from your bustling life amidst nature. Additionally, the experience of living inside a Jibhi tree house is unique as this is a new concept in India. 

Do you also want to venture into this unique experience but know nothing about it? Don’t worry!  

As I have spent a few days in the Jibhi tree house, I will provide you with complete details about it and the numerous attractions around Jibhi. I will also list details on booking the Jibhi Tree House and how to reach Jibhi. 

But before discussing these details, let’s first explore facts about Jibhi. 

Why is Jibhi Famous?

Jibhi is a picturesque village located deep inside the Banjar Valley, away from the bustling towns of Himachal Pradesh. The village is decorated with dense oak and pine forests, gushing rivers, and numerous wooden houses, including tree houses. 

Jibhi became favourite among nature lovers for the experience of living in these wooden houses. In fact, I also decided to visit Jibhi only because of the Jibhi tree houses. 

Apart from the tree houses, you can engage in numerous activities in Jibhi. You can indulge in fishing, explore waterfalls, visit famous temples, and trek to numerous places. I will discuss all these places in detail later in this blog. 

Furthermore, Jibhi is also loved for its weather. It receives heavy snow in winter, while the sun shines brilliantly in summer. In the monsoon season, the whole Jibhi valley is adorned with lush green colour and regular rain showers. Every season in Jibhi offers a completely different experience. 

If you want to spend some days in nature while living in a tree house completely away from city life, Jibhi is the perfect destination. 

Unique Jibhi  Tree House Experience

Tree houses are the heart of Jibhi. It is these Jibhi tree houses that have introduced Jibhi to nature lovers’ maps.  There is a reason for this. 

Living in a Jibhi tree house in Himachal Pradesh is a unique experience that you will not get in another place in north India. It is an experience you will cherish throughout your life. 

Most of the Jibhi tree houses are located in Tandi village, which is 15 minutes away from the main Jibhi market. 

Once you reach Tandi, you can spot numerous tree houses and wooden cottages spread throughout the village. All the tree houses are beautifully constructed with pine wood around the tall oak tree. 

I booked a treehouse named Lovely Treehouse on Airbnb. This tree house, hoisted by a young brother and sister, was just five minutes from the road. You can find details about this treehouse below. 

As soon as I entered the tree house, my wife and I were surprised by its aesthetics. We had never seen such a beautiful wooden room. Upon entering, I spotted a huge oak tree in the middle, a large pine wood bed near the window, and a small wooden table and chair near another window. 

Everything inside the tree house was made of pine wood, which looked stunning. Standing inside the Jubhi tree house, we could smell the pine wood’s fragrance.

The tree house had an attached bathroom and a balcony with a scenic view of Jibhi Valley.  This setting is similar in all the tree houses. In fact, you can even get Jibhi Tree house with Jacuzzi. 

Other Attractions Besides Jibhi Tree House stay 

During your Jibhi tree house stay, you can visit numerous places in Jibhi, which include: 

  • Jibhi Water Fall 
  • Serosar Lake Trek
  • Raghupur Fort Trek
  • Jalori Pass
  • Shringa Rishi Temple & Cheni Kothi 
  • Balo Temple
  • Great National Himalayan Park 

1. Jibhi Water Fall 

You can’t miss the Jibhi waterfall while in Jibhi. Why? Check out this video. 

The Jibhi Waterfall is located just five minutes from the Jibhi market and 15 minutes from the Tandi village where we stayed. You can easily reach it through a well-paved road to the entrance gate. 

Upon reaching, you can spot a few local stalls selling traditional clothes and seasonal fruits just outside the entrance. Enjoy exploring them, and then start your short 5-minute hike to Jibhi waterfall. The visit to Jibhi waterfall is free of cost. 

From the entrance, there is a well-laid-out path with a few small wooden bridges over gushing water streams. It is exciting to walk over these wooden bridges. 

As you move towards the Jibhi waterfall, you hear its sound. The sound gets bigger and bigger as you move towards the Jibhi waterfall. On reaching the Jibhi waterfall, spot your eyes on the water streams gushing from the middle of two huge stones located at a significant height. It’s a sheer experience witnessing such a magnificent waterfall.

You can spend some time witnessing this beauty or even showering under the waterfall. When the water falls on your body, it feels as if somebody is massaging. Your muscles are relaxed, and you feel rejuvenated. 

2. Jalori Pass 

If you are in Jibhi, you must visit Jalori Pass, which is located at 10,499 feet and is a 1.5-hour drive away. 

It is famous for its 360-degree view of the Himalayan mountain range and is a base for the Serosar Lake and Raghupur Fort treks. Furthermore, Jalori Pass is strategically located between Kullu Valley and Shimla Valley. 

At Jalori Pass, you find a few shops and camping spots with a massive view of Jibhi Valley. 

3. Serosar Lake Trek

If you are enjoying Jibhi Tree House stay, don’t miss the Serosar Lake trek. It is a stunning 5km trek from Jalori Pass. 

This stunning trek takes you inside the dense oak and pine forest for the entire 5 km and you continuously ascend and descend on a well-defined trail. In between, you come across numerous clearings, including a clearing with a 360-degree view. 

Halt at these clearings to catch your breath and enjoy the scenic view of the Pir Panjal Range and the Great Himalayan Range. 

After a trek of 3.5 hours, you come across the picturesque Serosar Lake. The lake is surrounded by dense pin trees and protected by a fence. You can also spot a Buddhi Nagin Temple just beside it. 

The view of the lake is a mesmerising experience that makes you feel touched and blessed. Moreover, the lake changes its colour with the season. 

During the winter months, you come across a charming white lake completely froze. In spring, the lake is half frozen, and throughout the monsoon, it looks green. 

The trek to Serosar Lake can be done in just one day, and you can also camp beside it for a night with the forest’s official permission. 

4. Raghupur Fort trek

This is another picturesque trek you can explore while staying at the Jibhi tree house. It starts from the famous Jalori pass and takes you inside the dense forest for 3 km to reach Raghupur Fort.

On the way, you come across numerous small, lush green meadows with a view of the valley down the hillside. You also spot sheep grazing on these meadows during the winter months. It is a sheer pleasure to spend some time exploring these meadows with such scenic views. 

After trekking for approximately 1.5 hours, you reach a huge undulating meadow. At the far end of this meadow, you can spot a 3-4 ft stone wall. This is the ruins of Raghupur Fort, standing at 1200 ft. 

Once you reach the fort, you can spot a small Shringa Rishi temple inside the fort walls. While taking blessings at this sacred temple, you can also enjoy a panoramic 360-degree view of the Himalayas. Afterwards, follow the same route to return.

Due to unknown reasons, the Raghupur Fort trek is less preferred than its counterpart, the Serosar Lake trek. However, if you have enough time, I suggest you do not miss this one. 

5. Shringa Rishi Temple & Chehni Kothi Village

A 20-minute drive from the main Jibhi market towards Banjar Valley takes you to the famous Shringa Rishi Temple and Chahni Kothi Village. 

After this short drive, you reach a spot called Baggi Mandir. From here, a well-laid steep trail leads up towards Baggi Village, where Shringa Rishi Temple is located. It will take you 25 minutes to reach the temple. 

The Shirnga Rishi Temple is perfectly placed in the midst of apple orchards, pine, and deodar forests. Additionally, it is a marvellous three-floor building and is considered the sacred home of one of the main deities of Kullu.  

Continuing your hike from here takes you to a quaint cafe in between apple orchards just a few meters behind the Cheni Kothi Village. Take a break here and refresh yourself. 

Post break, you reach Chehni Kothi village, located at 7038 ft. The village is host to two huge temple towers and numerous traditional houses. The two tall towers, approx. 148 m high, were built 1500 years ago. You will be surprised to know that these structures were built using stones, mud, and deodar wood and have stood there irrespective of numerous earthquakes. 

Besides these two towers, there is another three-story Krishna temple with a similar architecture. Spend some time exploring these marvellous structures and traditional villages. 

6. Balu Temple Nera Bahu Village

Balu Temple is another place you can visit during your Jibhi tree house stay. The temple is located near Bahu village, a 15-minute drive from Tandi village. 

You can easily reach Bahu village by road and then hike for 30 minutes to Balu temple. The temple is located amidst a deodar forest on a lush green meadow. It is a quiet spot in the shadow of dense trees, as you can see in the video above.   

7. Great National Himalayan Park 

A must-visit is the location if you love trekking and exploring the Himalayan flora and fauna. 

Great National Himalayan Park Conservation Area (GHNPCA) is located at a distance of 54 km from Jibhi. You need to drive for 2.5 hours to reach the park’s main entrance. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering an area of 90,540 hectares and hosts high alpine peaks, meadows, riverine forests, and 25 rich forest types. 

Moreover, it is home to numerous endemic plants and animal species. These species include snow leopard, Himalayan brown bear, Asiatic black bear, red fox, monal blue sheep, and many more.
