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
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 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.
Very beautiful and scenic tea estate in the heart of Darjeeling but the Road reaching the tea factory is horrible. It is a very small Tea estate compared to tea estates in Munnar and Ooty. The Entery fee to the Tea factory is 100 Rs entry fees per head. I did not enjoy the place......
Happy Valley Tea Estate is a tea garden located Leaving cart Road chauk Bazar Darjeeling.Established in 1854 second oldest tea estate.This is beautiful valley and visit for best photography.
