Slept very well without any disturbance since the hotel in outskirts. Basic but delicious breakfast at Ravi Hotel in town, soaked in hot water and geared up for the adventure. A jeep picked up near the Ravi Hotel, parked our car entrance of a private Morrison tea estate fully secured. Hop on to the jeep a very friendly driver said the adventure is yet to come. A 12 Kms ride into the tea estate top merely no road took us 1.5 hrs to reach the top with some pit stop for pictures.
We could feel the chilliness, moving mist & a great view. We reached the WORLD HIGHEST ORTHODOX TEA PLANTATION at 7130 feet(2160 mts) MSL. Heading directly to the camping area the tent's were setup ready and the care taker welcome us with the organic lemon tea grown without any pesticides in their estate.
We dropped our backpack and immediately when for a short trek to singapara (lion faced rock) a trail for beginner to intermediate trekkers. Awesome views, chatting and peaceful evening. Back to the camp before dark, met some locals hearing some good & horror stories in the region. Started the bon 🔥 fire, music and a night without any network or mobile phone felt really lively. Dinner for hunger & early sleep.
