WHERE IS THE NUSA PENIDA TREEHOUSE?
Rumah Pohon Tree House (Nusa Penida Treehouse) can be found on the far eastern tip of Nusa Penida Island.
From the main harbor of Toya Pakeh, it is approximately a one-hour drive.
HOW TO GET TO RUMAH POHON TREE HOUSE
The easiest way to get to the Nusa Penida Treehouse is by scooter.
There are a number of scooter rental shops dotted along the beachfront at Toya Pakeh harbor that will be able to sort you out with some wheels when you arrive on the island.
Alternatively, most accommodations will help you to organize a scooter rental for the time you plan to spend on Nusa Penida Island.
You can expect to pay around 70,000 IDR per day for a Nusa Penida scooter rental with a full tank of gas.
Be sure to get a helmet as an extra precaution for riding on the roads in Nusa Penida as they are not very well maintained with potholes and loose gravel in many areas.

ARRIVING AT NUSA PENIDA TREEHOUSE
When you arrive, you’ll find a large parking lot at the top of the cliffs where you can park your scooter safely.
At the jump-off point, you will also find a small ticket office where you will have to pay 5,000 IDR for the entrance ticket.
You can actually book a night’s stay at the Nusa Penida Tree House which is a once-a-lifetime experience!

THOUSAND ISLAND VIEWPOINT
The hike down the ridge from the parking lot takes no more than five or ten minutes to the first viewpoint that overlooks the bay known as Thousand Islands (Pulau Seribu).
I don’t know why they named it Thousand Islands when I could only see five or six islands.
Regardless of the misleading name, this is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever laid my eyes on.
Once you are satisfied with marveling at Thousand Island viewpoint, continue the adventure further down the ridge and you will see the Rumah Pohon Tree House directly in front of you on the trail.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT RUMAH POHON TREEHOUSE
When I first saw the Nusa Penida Treehouse on Instagram I just had to go and see it for myself, as have thousands of other travelers before me.
This entire coastline has so much to offer and exploring it first hand was even better than seeing it in the pictures.
If you want to get that perfect Instagram photo of the treehouse you can stand on the hill on the right-hand side of the track to capture the best angle.
Depending on what time of day you visit the Tree House Nusa Penida, there may or may not be a line of people waiting to get a photo.
My friends and I visited at around 11 am when it was scorching hot and probably the reason why we didn’t see many other people down on the cliffs.
The most popular time to visit is around sunrise and sunset, so you can expect more people around these times.

Don’t end your adventure here, hike for another two minutes past the treehouse to yet another awesome viewpoint of the cliffs and beaches!
If you want to grab a quick bite to eat and a cold drink after visiting, there are a few small warungs perched at the top of the cliffs next to the parking lot.
I had a local mi-goreng dish and a can of coke for around 30,000 IDR — Cheap as chips if you ask me!
