Flee to the largest tea plantation and rediscover yourself! Darjeeling is a very promising option to break away from the monotony. This is the land of the world heritage Darjeeling Himalayan Railway where the century old miniature steam engine still chugs uphill vying for space with the fast disappearing Land Rovers. Blossoming flowers, brilliant weather, where the sun plays hide and seek and a hot piping cup of tea! In Mark Twain’s words” It is the land, men desire to see”


What is it about Coorg? It is time that you drive down the road surrounded by acres of green and find your kind of escape in the small snuggled up district of Kodagu, also known as Coorg.
