The Hornbill House is a vacation chalet nestled in a beautiful Southern Indian Forest. The holiday home features impressive views of the mountainous landscape and overlooks a large tea and coffee plantation.

The Hornbill House is a rather modest vacation chalet and was built using many traditional Indian materials. Its walls are made of stone and mud brick to match the surrounding rocky terrain.

What makes the house truly unique is its location, placed at the end of the road and right at the edge of the forest. The home also opens to a waterfall, with a background of layered mountains. Each area of the house faces a unique view, as well as numerous bison and monkeys in the wilderness.
