Of all the tea garden images that have mesmerized travellers for years, the one with a quaint bungalow nestled amid the rolling hills with whistling breeze sweeping across its backyard is a favourite. Tumsong Chiabari in Darjeeling’s Ghoom with its 186-ha tea area on an open hill slope makes for one such image. It is quiet and peaceful out here with only the chirping of birds, murmuring of the streams, and the happy songs of the tea workers breaking the silence in a rhythmic way. The bungalow has an amazing colonial aura. All the rooms of the property are fitted with modern-day amenities. If you are looking to spend a relaxing holiday combined with some rich tea experience, then Tumsong Chiabari is surely the right destination for you.
