I had such a nice time at Darang Tea Estate in March, 2021 with my mom. After the intensity of the pandemic and traveling, I felt very safe and relaxed here. Waking up to the most beautiful landscape (gardens and view of Himalaya's are exceptional). Neeru, the owner is so full of life and so kind and hospitable. She invites you into her home to chat around the fire and share meals with her. She is incredibly helpful and there is an amazing staff of kind people who make sure I was happy and taken care of. The food is AMAZING home khana! All authentic and local dishes served everyday. You get a taste of Himachali and Punjabi dishes. The breakfasts are great as well, a mixture of Indian and continental. Bring warm clothes, it gets very chilly at night - but during the day it's perfect weather for hiking or lying in the sun with a nice book. I spent hours walking around the grounds and visiting the Kangra Fort and McCloud Gange in Dharamshala. Highly recommend visiting Norbulikga, the Tibetan Art and Culture insititute and afterwards eat at Divine Hima. Can't wait to return to Darang!

We visited Darang for a getaway after a tumultous and draining 2020 - the year of the pandemic. Found the property on a CNT article, called up and booked a cottage in a pretty sorted and seamless way. We reached Darang without any major expectations - for us it was just another pleasant place in the mountains. However - the next five days were the most amazing we have ever had - on a vacation. What did we do? Nothing. We literally just stayed in the property throughout. And had the most magical time. Walked around the estate, had multiple teas in the garden, read books and painted, dozed off in the sun on the garden hammock, went for long evening walks through the mountain roads into the adjacent village, goofed around with adorable dogs and heard stories by the fireplace. And oh, the food - the thought and love that went into every meal - all our meals were at home - it was excellent every single time. We had company and yet just like we wanted we had our quiet space to rejuvenate. Mrs Bhandari - our host - deserves all the praise for running a homestay in the actual definition of the word. We absolutely love her and Darang - and will always have fond memories of our time spent here.

We visited the estate in March end for five days, and it was an amazing experience. The cottages have a cosy retro look, and the estate itself provides a great opportunity for exploring. The view of the Dhauladhar range from the property is one of the best in Palampur. The highlight of the stay though, has to be the company of Mrs. Neeru Bhandari. She is a delight to talk to, and is an amazing host. The food here is fantastic, more of an experience. And despite visiting McLeodganj and Bir, which has some pretty cool cafes and eateries, we made it a point to have dinner at the property itself. We also sampled some local Kangri food, thanks to Mrs. Bhandari. Over the five days, I became an ardent admirer of her homemade jams! Another amazing highlight is the company of Casper and Diana, two adorable dogs at the property who will walk you around! I generally don't do so well with dogs, but these two were so friendly and delightful. There is much more to the experience than can be written here. Definitely recommended.
