Darang Tea Estate, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, India
Homestay, 7 acre estate, library, pristine nature, nature trail etc.
Darang Tea Estate is a family-owned estate, dating back over 150 years and one of the first plantations to be planted by an Indian. Its rustic charm lovingly preserved over the years, Darang Tea Estate introduces you to soul-nourishing tranquillity and unparalleled natural splendour in a relatively unexplored part of Himachal Pradesh. Nestled among the 70-acre estate are four cosy cottages, each one with a direct view of the snow-capped Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Serenaded by the gurgling waters of a khud (mountain stream) and enveloped by acres of tea garden, guests get to experience the comforts of a home stay and the solitude of an exclusive resort at a single place. Darang Tea Estate is a pleasant 45-minute drive from Mcleodganj, the summer abode of the Dalai Lama, and a 20-minute drive from Palampur. The nearest village is 7 minutes away and the closest taxi-stand is a phone-call away.
