2PM – 4PM – A day in Darjeeling cannot be complete without a visit to the tea gardens. Cultivation of tea is what made Darjeeling popular internationally after all. Pay a visit to any of the tea gardens and you will know why! Post lunch, get another taxi and visit the Happy Valley Tea Estate. Roam freely once inside the tea garden and take lots of photos. If you have a keen interest, pay INR 100 and get into the factory to understand the process of manufacturing tea. Visitors are also treated to a tea tasting session.
