THINGS TO DO

We are tucked away from the hustle-bustle of the real world. The privileges that come with being in the middle of 1600 acres of tea plantation, facing more than 100 Himalayan peaks including Mount Kanchenjunga, are aplenty. To this end, our guests have exclusive access to each of the following activities:

360 POINT PICNIC

Just a 5 minute drive away from your room, the 360 Point (a view point) gives visitors a stunning, panoramic view of the breathtaking beauty that our tea estate and the surrounding Himalayas offer. One can see more than 100 Himalayan peaks, including Mount Kanchenjunga, spanning 4 countries (India, China, Nepal, Bhutan), the whole of Darjeeling town, vast valleys, several other tea estates, waterfalls, and a variety of flora and fauna from this spot. Needless to say, this view point is a must visit. If the weather is clear, you will see the scenery described above. If it is cloudy, you will have the pleasure of "dining among the clouds", as we call it. We arrange for a picnic lunch at this spot. We also arrange trips here to see sunrise (the sunrise trips are complimentary, unlike the actual picnics).

 

Cost: Rs. 1,500 per head, includes lunch and car transfers to and fro.

TONGLU PICNIC

Just 2.5 hours away from your room, Tonglu is the 3rd highest peak in West Bengal (10,000 ft) and is home to the absolute best motorable view point of the Himalayan peaks (the view from here is twice as good as the view from the famous Tiger Hill). From here, you can see 4 of the world's 5 highest mountains (including Everest and Kanchenjunga) right ahead of you. You will feel like you can almost touch these peaks -- they are so close. The sunrise at Tonglu is even more spectacular, as you see the peaks changing colours from pink to orange to silver and finally white. You can see 2 vlogs on Tonglu by clicking here (Vlog 1) and here (Vlog 2). The drive to Tonglu is in itself worth the time -- you cross several forests, villages, highways, each of which offer outstanding mountain views.

We arrange for a picnic breakfast or lunch at this spot. 

 

Cost: Rs. 10,000 per couple, includes a meal and car transfers to and fro.

TIGER HILL PICNIC

Just 75 minutes away from your room, Tiger Hill is the 4th highest peak in West Bengal (8,600 ft) and is home to the 2nd best motorable view point of the Himalayan peaks. From here, you can see 4 of the world's 5 highest mountains (including Everest and Kanchenjunga) right ahead of you. The sunrise at Tiger Hill is even more spectacular, as you see the peaks changing colours from pink to orange to silver and finally white. You can see a vlog on Tiger Hill by clicking here. Tiger Hill is a famous tourist destination, and the peak is almost always packed. Therefore, we take our guests to a spot just below the peak where others don't usually go, in order to provide them with the peaceful, tranquil experience that they seek.

We arrange for a picnic breakfast or lunch at this spot.

 

Cost: Rs. 6,000 per couple, includes a meal and car transfers to and fro.

TEESTA RIVER PICNIC

Situated just 2 hours away from Singtom is Triveni, a confluence point of two holy rivers, River Teesta and River Rangeet. There is a charming beach right here that makes for a perfect picnic spot, with the lush green mountains in the background. We organise a picnic lunch either here, or at the Lover's Point, which is 10 minutes away and about 500 feet higher up, from where you get a bird's eye view of this. The trip to these places takes you through wonderful stretches of forest, tea estates, villages, etc. and offers spectacular views of Mount Kanchenjunga and 100 other peaks. 

Cost: Rs. 6,000 per couple. This includes a picnic lunch, and the chauffeur-driven car (upto 6 hours).

TEA FACTORY TOUR

We are excited to offer our guests the chance to witness the processes that give us tea as we see it in our cups. Each guest is shown how tea is withered, rolled, steamed, fermented, dried and sorted. Each such session lasts between 1–2 hours, depending on the size of the touring group. This tour takes place without operating machines in winter, as no tea is produced during that time, while it takes place with operating during the rest of the year, which is when tea is produced. Furthermore, guests must note that this tour happens early in the morning (usually between 6-8 AM).

 

Cost: Rs. 2000 per head during the tea production season and Rs. 1000 per head during the off-season for tea production.
