Here are six of the most awesome treehouses in the world. Planning a visit? Read up!

1. The Mirrorcube in Sweden

3. Temple of the Blue Moon in Fall City, Washington

This treehouse is nothing short of spectacular. For one, treehouse master Pete Nelson was the genius behind it. Artfully decorated and well-designed, the Temple of the Blue Moon was inspired by the lines of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. The treetop cottage was built on a 300-year-old Sitka spruce that towers at 160 feet. For lodging, tours, and event enquiries, visit this link.
