Glenburn is a small tea plantation which is located on a hill above the banks of the river Rungeet in the Himalayas, dominated by the impressive mountain Kanchenjunga. Created by a Scottish tea company in 1859, Glenburn has now passed into the hands of an Indian pioneer families in the tea plantation - The Prakashes, which over the years are known to be the family of "planters". The family history Chaiwala ago began a hundred years, and it is closely related to the tea plantations in India. The experience of the "tea garden" was inspired by the vineyards of Europe and other parts of the world, where visitors can observe the process of making wine, taste wine, craft shops and products premises. We found it interesting and have been inspired to open our own tea plantation for travelers who want to know how a tea leaf reaches their teacup. During the first visit Glenburn, Husna-Tara Prakash decided that this was the best place for such a heavenly experience. In addition to the "tea experience" you can also offer rides around the area of ​​Glenburn remains a unique destination in India. We grow our own fresh herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables, which makes the experience "taste", focusing on the use of local ingredients to create mouth-watering menus.
