Sight Seen : Darjeeling With Kalimpong Tour - Happy Valley Tea Estate

Darjeeling - Happy Valley Tea Estate

This 1854 tea estate below Hill Cart Rd is worth visiting, especially when the plucking and processing are in progress (March to November). An employee will guide you through the aromatic factory and its withering, rolling, fermenting and drying processes, explaining how green, black and white teas all come from the same leaf. Take the marked turn-off about 1km northwest of town on Hill Cart Rd.
