About the course
Our Tea Tourism Program is designed for tea lovers to appreciate the origins of their preferred cup. It is a 3 nights / 4 days program in the tranquility of the Himalayas, amidst the extolled tea gardens of Darjeeling and Sikkim. Our responsible tourism program has been designed to promote ecotourism in India with a special focus on tea.
We aim to promote environmental conservation and to uphold the cultures and traditions of the indigenous people of the area so that the quality of their lives can be improved. We emphasize on low-impact and conscious activities that leave natural beauties in their virgin state.
