I stayed in this property with my extended family (aunts and cousins and kids) -- and had an awesome experience!! Starting with the location, which is quiet as its surrounded by lush greenery and the majestic mountains all around. Vibrant tea fields, wild flowers, stone paths, nature walks, animals, dogs and the most amazing moon. Fresh air and mountain view...

Naveen and Neeru were amazing, totally relaxing place in beautiful surroudings, we went for a walk around the tea estate which was great. The long walk and short walk were both spectacular. We bought some tea and we liked it. The food that Neeru made was amazing, and she kept giving us more which was really nice. Thank you guys!...

It was our first try at homestays and Darang Tea estate has truly imprinted the surreal experience in our mind forever. Nestled within the Dhauldhar Mountains, the sheer scenic beauty and expanse of this place calls for a more than “WOW”. As a family of 3, we had booked our stay at the Peccan cottage - a delectable and tastefully...

We stayed here for one night during the long weekend of independence day in 2014. Boy did we regret booking our stay for only one night. Should've stayed for longer. The property, a tea estate, is beautiful with a stream running through the tea plantations. The food preparations was sumptuous, flavorful and unlike anything you've eaten in restaurants or dhabas....

From the past two years I've become an ardent fan of home stays & I find myself extremely lucky to say that I haven't been disappointed so far in the places where I've been welcomed .., but I dint have the faintest idea of the flavour I'd been missing until I met our hosts- Neera aunty, Naveen uncle and the...

I went to Dharamshala, to get away from a robotic city life i lead in Singapore. Darang offered me everything I was looking for - a very quiet stay, super fresh home cooked food (with estate grown veggies and fruits), the right amount of conversations and acres and acres of green. As any traveller, I too had plans of seeing...

It was our first homestay, but truly speaking it is our one of the best experiences. It is evenbetter than some of the best hotels. The place itself is the first attraction. It will steal your heart then n there. Beautiful cottages surrounded by greenery everywhere. Rooms are cozy and decorated by antiques which gives a nice and soothing look....

We stayed in the Main Cottage in September. The cottages are gorgeously done up and maintained - mud plaster and all. The home-grown and home-cooked food is unbeatable and we regretted every meal we had outside Darang for this reason! It was very nice to chat with Neeru over dinner and meet Naveen's family. Would love to go back.
