Tea Plantation Visit

Tea pickers in Darjeeling

The stunning scenery of the Himalayan foothills can be experienced by walking through some of the many tea plantations, where you can often see the tea-pickers hard at work delicately removing "two leaves and a bud" to create the best quality tea.

The area is also rich in birdlife and many different species can be seen during your morning/afternoon walk.
