See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Glenburn Tea Estate

This little plantation retreat lies on the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas and overlooked by the mighty Kanchenjunga.

Home to generations of tea planters, originally established in 1860 and a working tea estate to this day, Glenburn is owned and run by the Prakash family. It has been beautifully restored and is now a wonderfully cosy and peaceful place to stay.

With four rooms in The Burra Bungalow and four more in The Water Lily Bungalow on the edge of the Glenburn spur, it is the perfect base from which to visit Darjeeling or for those who just want to enjoy the magnificent views and stunning countryside.

Wildlife abounds and there is plenty to do by way of a private tour of the tea estate or walking, trekking, fishing, picnics and bird-watching.

Why We Love It

Glenburn's small size makes it ideal for exclusive hire, and the property can be taken over exclusively for small groups.
