Darang tea estate is lovely home stay just 45 minutes from Kangra Airport .. we were there for two nights on our last leg of the tour.. having spent two days at Dalhousie and khajiar and two days at Andretta Palampur .. we were looking to unwind and relax.. within an hour of reaching at estate we realised that we had made a right choice We were welcome by lovely Casper and little brandy.. soon we had tea pakoras, .. over next two days we had really good time walking in never ending tea gardens of mrs Bhandari, playing with her dogs, enjoying homely cottages, reading books from well stocked book banks .. but what we all kept waiting was for mrs Bhandari’s lavish spread at dinner and break fast.. all the ingredients of food were from her garden itself and it tasted like heaven .. specially deserts.. firani and rasgullas dipped in falooda will be remembered.. for long long time . so will be Neeru madam’s suggestions of cafés , shops and detailed itinerary she made for us for Macleodgunj visit .. We only left after promising to go there again .. Anand and Falguni Naregal

Excellent visit. Having known her, perfectionist as a person, her hospitality and cooking skills are far more than imagination. The place is so calming and soothing.Her personal touch in the garden enhances the beauty of the place, Would not miss any chance of vising again. Coodos to the staff too.

When we selected it was to stay at a place which was different from usual hotel stays. What we got here was a slice of life the way it was in a time gone by. From the quaint but well appointed cottages; to the personal care showered on us by Neera Ma'am; to the wonderful food on the table at every meal; to the totally relaxed and home like feel of the place - it was something that not too many places in the world offer. Thanks to Neera Ma'am and all the staff for making it so special for us. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We'll be back for more. Cheers Juhi & Amit

A friend & I went to Darang as a getaway from city life. Starting from the warm welcome by Neeru our stay was a delight. The scrumptious spread for breakfast- the homemade preserves, butter & ghee to the vegetables all from the farm to the table was so satisfying to the soul. Neeru went out of her way to make the trip pleasurable & comfortable. The upper cottage was so cosy. The staff were polite, helpful and always smiling. And one cannot forget Casper, the Labrador who was always there to greet us. The early morning walks amidst the greenery was uplifting. One can do great shopping at Upper Dharamshala, sky dive at Bir, do a pottery session at Andretta , visit Norbulinga monastery and Kangara fort. The pure air, greenery, misty mountains would take me back in a heartbeat. Darang tea estate is a place one must visit for tranquility.

Awesome homestay experience with comfortable cottages, sumptuous food and wonderful conversations. It felt like being in a home away from home. To wake up in the lush greens of the tea estate and the tranquility was the icing on the cake! Thank you Mrs Bhandari. Looking forward to making it back there soon….🙏🏼

Our efforts to get away from everyday grind for few days turned out to be a perfect decision. Nestled amongst tea plantations, lush estate gardens & clear view of the dhauladhar range it was both so refreshing and scenic. The most enjoyable part and very characteristic of the stay was that we were able to strike hearty conversations with the host ( Neera Bhandari, whom we called aunty) and fellow guests. It was absolutely heartening to be able to share life stories with each other while sharing a table of delicious home cooked meals. This brings me to the most fascinating part ; fruits , vegetables, milk products we ate during our stay were all home produces , a rarity in city life. I even brought back small bottles of homemade jams & marmalade :) The long walks that I took every morning soaking in the goodness and beauty of the landscape & and visit to the kangra fort were two of the favourite activities . A big shout out to the property staff who were very courteous & prompt. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend few days close to nature away from hustle bustle.

The stay at Darang tea estate, nestled within the Himalayan foothills had been the most rewarding experience of my life. Amazing hostess Mrs Bhandari makes you feel at home away from home. Great home cooked, classy food. The cherished walks through the tea garden against the backdrop of great Dhauladhar ranges will always remain etched on my psyche with utmost tenderness...

Had the fortune of being guided by a co traveler n OMG discovered a place which always beckoned me in my dreams. Nestled among lush green forest a tea estate established in year 1800, a heritage building 180 years old with an unmatchable old world charm n all modern comforts. Miles of tea garden to stroll with owner's pet Casper giving u his protective company, not an iota of traffic sounds n fumes..only ur silence n nature for company. Yes Darang Tea Estate is the patch of paradise we all crave for. The cherry on cake is home cooked super delicious food made from fully organic own grown ingredients. The super charming though stern n little upright hostess Ms Neera Bhandari is a delight to interact with and graciously joins u at meal table. My only suggestion is to provide electric kettles in room so that tea n coffee addicts like me don't hv to reluctantly watch upto kitchen n ask for it at odd hours

The stay was absolutely good. The host Neera aunty was a gem of a person, with regards to her witty anecdotes and loving personality. Me and my family had a wonderful time and would love to visit the estate more often. The highlight of the trip was meeting the most adorable dogs Casper, Diana and Brandy. We also got to make murals on the wall of the estate making the experience even more memorable .
