Glenburn Tea Estate

Glenburn Tea Estate

Glenburn is a heavenly plantation retreat that lies on a hillock above the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas, overlooked by the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range.  Just outside Darjeeling this working tea estate has been lovingly restored, whilst ensuring that its colonial past is retained. With 1000 acres of private forest, and two rivers running through the estate, Glenburn offers a unique holiday experience. 
 
The newly added Water Lily Bungalow, perched on the edge of the hill in front of the main Burra Bungalow also offer the impressive panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and blue mountains.  The rooms are deliciously comfortable and private.  Each has been uniquely appointed with antique furniture and has Burma teak flooring.  The style is traditional colonial with a contemporary twist.  
 
Glenburn is the perfect destination retreat and an ideal base from which to visit Darjeeling or to simply enjoy the magnificent views. Sitting on the flower filled veranda, gazing across the gardens to Kanchenjunga is a special, timeless experience.  There is plenty to do by way of private tours of the tea estate and an abundance of mountain activities.
