Misty Homestay in Gopaldhara
Starts from 1500
A few moments in solitude, among the dewey hills of Darjeeling could be the perfect mood lifter. The mountains have that aura of magic about them that's hard to miss.
❝ There is a certain stillness, when even the gentle flutter of the butterfly’s wing feels like a hurricane.
The moment when crashing waves fall asleep, peaceful, lost to the serenity of salty dreams.
When tall trees stand to attention and every leaf pauses, takes a deep breath and holds it.
It is here, beneath the maddening silence I hear your name.
An echo of you. ❞
— Michael Faudet
A place to fall in love with
Acres upon acres of scenic tea gardens, sunlit and caressed by cool fresh breeze and pine forests cajoling the serpentine paths into more solitude and serenity…that’s Gopaldhara. Wild flowers, fragrant orchids, lots of birds, streams and rivulets here and there and peace all around, Gopaldhara at 4500 ft is one beautiful hamlet tucked into the Darjeeling hills.
The Gopaldhara tea gardens produce some of the finest Darjeeling tea, like the black tea, first flush, second flush, white tea, oolong tea etc. There’s a shop-cum-restaurant inside the tea estate from where you can take them home for your loved ones too. A walk into the village would be a heartwarming experience. The Golpahar viewpoint nearby is excellent for watching sunrise and sunset with Kanchenjunga forming an ethereal backdrop. Mirik is about 8 km and Darjeeling, 39 km from Gopaldhara.
