Lloyds Botanical Garden - Review
As the name suggests, The Lloyd's Botanical Garden represents the best combination of flora and fauna in Darjeeling. It was built in the year 1878, it has an area more than 40 acres. It is for the most part quite similar to that of the Calcutta Botanical garden. It has several species of bamboo, oak, magnolia, wild geranium and so on. The collection of native orchids is a special attraction in this garden. The Garden is situated at an elevation of about 6,000 ft. With an average annual rainfall of almost 100 inches.
The various plants in the Garden represent the characteristic vegetation of the Sikkim Himalayas. The position of the Garden in the lap of the Himalayas is unique. Students may visit the place which immensely adds to their knowledge. The staffs of the garden work really hard to maintain the garden in such a way as to attract the visitors. Two major roads - Cart Road and Victoria Road – surround the garden from the north, while Jail Road and Hari Ghosh Road from the south. Various specimens from across the globe are present in the garden. Harboring more than 2000 species on its lap, the garden represents seventeen nations of the world.

Lloyds Botanical Garden, Darjeeling Reviews
U need to pay RS 100/person to visit the factory. The guide will explain the procedure of how tea leaves are dried and made ready to use. Take the free taxi ride to the tea estate. It will take you about an hour to complete the whole trip.
I have found the most beautiful tea garden in my life in Darjeeling and that is Happy Vally Tea Estate. The natural beauty is really nice. You can take photos.
Happy Valley is indeed a happy tea estate!! One of the oldest tea estates in the Country, Happy Valley is spread over 400 acres of lush tea gardens!! The tea estate tour was very very informative and ended with lovely tea tasting. Infact the nominal 100 rupee that is charged for this tour is also adjusted if you buy some of their world class tea from their shop! Don't miss a leisurely stroll in their tea gardens and if you are up for it, get yourself photographed in the tea gardens wearing one of the traditional nepali dresses are available for hire at a very nominal charge of Rs 50/- only!! Tip: If, like me, you are travelling solo and not renting out a private taxi then don't forget to call them in advance and take advantage of their free pick and drop service from Chowrasta to the Estate!!
Beautiful place and tea estate, guides will show u the entire process of tea making. Very friendly people
Happy Valley Tea Estate , Established in 1854, is Darjeeling's second oldest tea estate. Spread over 440 acres , it is situated at a height of 6,900 ft above sea level.There are some points on the way from where the mountain vistas are simply spectacular. Sip some fantastic tea, and you can buy excellent varieties of tea from here.
