Write a review on Glenmerry Cottage

Takdah: Takdah is a little secret tucked away neatly in the folds of the Darjeeling hills. However it is quite central to all the places of interest around here. It is about 60 km away from both NJP, the nearest railhead, and Bagdogra, the only airport in North Bengal. Kalimpong too is not far, being situated to the east, at a distance of about 40 km. Darjeeling is closer at about 28 km.

The history of Takdah goes way back to the times of the British Raj when it was established as a military cantonment. The architecture of the place hence is colonial. Although the British have left, these buildings which are now mostly owned by the locals give a taste of living that the officers of the Raj were accustomed to.

Nearby Places of Interest

Tea Gardens: Darjeeling of course produces the world's best tea. Some of it is produced in tea gardens that are situated at a walking distance from Glenmerry. Rungli Rungliot, Gielle, Namring, Jinglam, Poomong and Testa Valley, are some of the tea gardens to which tours can be organized. Besides the rolling green slopes of the tea gardens, guests can also visit the factory and see how their favourite beverage is prepared.

Orange orchards of Mangwa: Besides tea, oranges are the organic gifts of the Darjeeling hills to the world. These fruits are grown in well maintained, picturesque orchards. Visits to orchards can be arranged. For city dwellers, it is an especially exhilarating sight to see the trees laden with the golden yellow fruit. The orchards also have a small factory that bottles orange juice. Visitors can buy bottles of these organic juices as souvenirs.

TinChuley: Near Glenmerry lies the hamlet of Tinchuley. Tinchuley offers a commanding view of the Himalayan ranges. The sunrise seen from here is a spectacle to behold.

Durpin: Situated at a distance of 10 kms. Durpin offers a satellite view of the Teesta river as it meanders through the folds of the bluish-green hills. When the sky is clear a view of Mt.Kunchunjunga can be enjoyed.

Forest Walks: Thickly wooded coniferous forests maintained and cared for by the Forest Department are situated at a walking distance. It is an exhilarating experience to trek through these pine-scented forests. The silence occasionally punctuated by the sounds of birds chirping can be stunning. The air is fresh and sweetly scented by the pine. Sometimes, especially if one is motoring through these areas in the night, it is possible to stare eyeball to eyeball with a leopard in the undergrowth.

Lamahatta: Lamahatta, a new destination for tourists is just 13 kms (via road). Guests interested in trekking can go for a short trek through jungle to Lamahatta and return via Tinchulay enjoying the natural beauty of coniferous forest and Mt.Kunchunjunga. To complete the trek one has to walk 4-5 hour
