Info

Takdah a small hamlet located around 28 km from Darjeeling and around 40 km from Kalimpong, is an upcoming tourist destination.  This little unknown hamlet has a very pleasant weather all the year round.
Takdah is a picturesque tea estate located at the Teesta Valley, covering a total area of 557 hectares out of which 288 hectares is under tea plantation. Due to its magnificent views, the gardens along with its planter’s bungalow have been filmed in several movies. The sprawling estate has elevation varying from 2500 to 6500 feet. It was originally established in 1864.
The word Takdah in Lepcha means "Place of tigers". However these days that tigers have all gone although once in a while leopards do stray into the garden area. In 1960s, the tea bushes from the Takdah gardens were uprooted and replanted with new ones with the objective of producing delicate first flush. The estate today produces 210,000kgs of tea that includes black, green and white varieties, and is a bio-organic estate. 

Only about 87 tea gardens in the world have the right to produce tea that can use the Darjeeling name and logo. All of these tea gardens can be found in a very small area: only about 19000 hectares spread over 7 main valleys in just one district in the state of West Bengal in India.
This very beautiful, very unique, very lush and green region lies in the hilly beginnings of the North Eastern Himalayas. Here, 4000-6000 feet above sea level, the perennially snow covered Kanchenjunga—the 3rd highest mountain peak in the Himalayas—dominates a landscape that is breathtakingly misty, mystic and absolutely magical.
An always crisp weather; pure and clean air; ice-sparkling waterfalls; innumerable clear mountain streams and a sun that pours liquid gold onto the fertile and luxuriant hills—these are the vital ingredients that make Darjeeling a tea without equal; and a taste that cannot be replicated anywhere else on Earth.
Takdah Cantonment, as the name signifies, was a British cantonment in the pre-independence era. The beautiful structures erected during the British era are the living proof of the story untold. This cantonment is filled with cedar trees and offers a panoramic view of the nearby locations.Takdah is close to coniferous forests where small treks and strolls are possible. Takdah Cantonment has an orchid centre with a wide variety of rare Himalayan orchids . This center has been the favourite of tourists visiting Takdah. The nearest tea gardens are Rungli, Giele and Teesta Valley tea gardens. The main junction of Takdah is called Dara Dokan. A weekly market, held every Thursday, is a sight worth watching as people from all the nearby villages come to shop their weekly needs.
