Given a special Binary Tree whose leaf nodes are connected to form a circular doubly linked list. Find the height of this special Binary Tree.

**Example 1:**

**Input:**
1
/ \
2 3
/
4**
Output: **3**
â€‹Explanation: **There are 3 edges and 4
nodes in spiral tree where leaf nodes
4 and 3 are connected in circular
doubly linked list form. Thus the
height of spiral tree is 3.

**Example 2:**

**Input:**
1
/ \
2 3
/ \
4 5
/
6**
Output: **4

**Your Task:**

You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function **findTreeHeight() **which takes the root of the special Binary Tree as its input and returns the Height of this special Binary Tree.

In a special Binary Tree, the leaf nodes form a circular doubly linked list.

**For Example:**

1

/ \

2 3

/ \

4 5

/

6

In the above binary tree, 6, 5 and 3 are leaf nodes and they form a circular doubly linked list. Here, the left pointer of leaf node will act as a previous pointer of circular doubly linked list and its right pointer will act as next pointer of circular doubly linked list.

**Expected Time Complexity: **O(Height of the Tree).

**Expected Auxiliary Space: **O(Height of the Tree).

**Constraints:**

1 <= Number of nodes <= 10^{4}
