Darjeeling Day Tour

Located in Ghoom area of Darjeeling, Tumsong has a rolling tea garden on an estate that spreads over 186 hectares of land area and on an open hill slope with elevations varying between 5,500 ft to 2,700 ft. The Manager's Bungalow retains the old colonial aura and offers four large suits. Tumsong is about 3 hours from Bagdogra airport / Siliguri, and about 1 hour 15 minutes from Darjeeling town centre.
Places to visit in day tour:

  • Sunrise on Tiger Hill

  • Peace Pagoda
  • Mahakal Temple
  • Tibetian Buddhist Monastery
  • Ghoom Monastery

    Tumsong Tea estate faces the highest Himalayan ranges and this puts it directly in the path of a constant cold breeze. This makes the plants grow gradually and thus gives them time to saturate their leaves with the special muscatel flavor of its exotic teas.
