Immerse yourself in the rich cultural tea heritage of India in picturesque Darjeeling, a spectacular region of plantations established in the 1860s. A visit to a local plantation, to learn about the tea making and growing process is an absolute must during your stay, with a selection of prominent estates, such as Glenburn, offering not only tours but heavenly little places to stay. Nothing quite encapsulates the tranquillity of the region like enjoying a delicious cup of tea whilst taking in the views of River Rungeet, Sikkim and the mighty Mt Kanchenjunga. Other adventures in the region include hiking excursions, day trips to Darjeeling, or Kalimpong, and birdwatching.
