This is my third attempt to get Tripadvisor to post a review of the Bhandaris' tea estate; the to previous drafts have been held ("pending approval") and then, presumably, just lost. We spent two nights with the Bhandaris in April 2017, travelling in Himachal with Delhi friends. This was the high point - a warm, friendly family welcome, breathtaking countryside...

I stayed in this property with my extended family (aunts and cousins and kids) -- and had an awesome experience!! Starting with the location, which is quiet as its surrounded by lush greenery and the majestic mountains all around. Vibrant tea fields, wild flowers, stone paths, nature walks, animals, dogs and the most amazing moon. Fresh air and mountain view...

Naveen and Neeru were amazing, totally relaxing place in beautiful surroudings, we went for a walk around the tea estate which was great. The long walk and short walk were both spectacular. We bought some tea and we liked it. The food that Neeru made was amazing, and she kept giving us more which was really nice. Thank you guys!...

It was our first try at homestays and Darang Tea estate has truly imprinted the surreal experience in our mind forever. Nestled within the Dhauldhar Mountains, the sheer scenic beauty and expanse of this place calls for a more than “WOW”.

We stayed here for one night during the long weekend of independence day in 2014. Boy did we regret booking our stay for only one night. Should've stayed for longer. The property, a tea estate, is beautiful with a stream running through the tea plantations. The food preparations was sumptuous, flavorful and unlike anything you've eaten in restaurants or dhabas....
