Glenburn is a heavenly little plantation retreat that lies on a hillock above the banks of the River Rungeet, high in the Himalayas, overlooked by the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range. Started by a Scottish tea company in 1859, Glenburn then passed into the hands of one of India’s pioneering tea planting families – The Prakashes. Today, the third and fourth generation Prakash family carry almost a century of tea knowledge in their inheritance, and they invite you to experience this legacy at Glenburn. The “tea estate” experience was inspired by the vineyards of Europe and other parts of the world, where visitors observe the wine-making process, taste the wine and shop for wine, local crafts and produce. The whole experience is educational and very interesting, and were inspired by that the family opened their tea estate for tourists.
