West Bengal lies in the eastern part of India, a unique state which has the mighty Himalayan ranges up in the north and coastal areas down in its south side. The state has some of the most unique and alluring places to be discovered. Our 3 nights and 4 days trip to Farm Holiday Darjeeling aims to do just that and it will be a trip which is unique to say the least.
Farm holiday will give travellers the rustic feel of the village life in a rural setting, amidst the hills of Eastern Himalayas.
The entire tour of the village and experience of staying in an organic farm surrounded by tea gardens and overlooked by lofty mount Kanchenjunga is an experience that should not be missed.
