While the estate is well spread out and we enjoyed the factory visit too, the highlight for us was the walk from the main road right down to the factory....zig zagging and curving thru the tea slopes. Makes for a very pretty picture.More

Happy Valley Tea Estate is highly advertised - as soon as you reach bagdogra airport you see the banners. But not much to see. Their main focus is to sell you overpriced tea. An experience that could have been avoided.More
