Private Day Excursion Trip To Takdah, Tinchuley and Lamahatta From Darjeeling

1 day
About this activity
You Will Pickup by our Trip Representative at your Darjeeling Hotel . Your first destination is Takdah, a small village about 28kms from Darjeeling and located at an altitude of 4,000ft. It once used to be a military cantonment during the British days of early 1900s when several British bungalows came up here for accommodations of the officers. Some of them still exist.

It takes about 1 hour 20 minutes to reach Takdah. You will however visit only two of the several attractions at Takdah because time is limited and there are several other places to go. The first one is the lovely Orchid Center at Takdah. Out of the wide range of orchids, you can also see the Himalayan orchids here.

Orchid Center at Takdah -- This orchid center once used to be one of the best in the whole of Asia.

Rungli Runliot Tea Esate -- Next is the lovely Rungli Rungliot Tea Gardens. The garden is surrounded by mountains and you can see river Teesta flowing far away... a picturesque sight. The tea estate is about 2kms from the main market of Takdah.

Continue to Tinchuley, a small hamlet which is about 3kms from Takdah. Out of several attractions here, Tinchuley is famous for two things, wonderful views of the snow peaks of Kanchenjunga and orange orchards. However you need not stop at Tinchuley. There is a new road which has been built from Tinchuley which passes through the Peshoke Tea Gardens. This is a wonderful drive as you pass through vast stretches of gardens in all sides on the mountain slope.

Peshoke Tea Garden Stop at the Peshoke Garden View Point and soak in views all around and drive along. The road winds all the way down mostly through the tea gardens and meets Peshoke road below.

On Peshoke road you will turn left towards Lamahatta, a relatively new Eco Tourism place which has come up and being run by the villagers who have opened a number of simple homestays for tourists. You will see prominent signs on the road as you approach Lamahatta. It will take over an hour from Tinchuley to reach Lamahatta.

Lamahatta is another place for the lovely views of Kanchenjunga. However one of the key attractions here is the landscaped Roadside Garden. This is a sprawling manicured garden on the roadside with many flowering plantations, hedges, pathways, seating places, gazebo for prayers or meditation and even a watchtower to take a panoramic view. At the backdrop of the garden is a forest of dhupi and pine trees. There is a trail through the forest that leads to a lake. Take some time out to roam around in the garden and enjoy the flora and the views. On a clear day, you can get lovely view of the mountains from here. Lots of Buddhist prayer flags are fluttering on one side of the garden.

You will Start Trip in Morning 9am and Come Back Darjeeling at around 4pm or 5pm
