4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Considered one of highest tea factories in the world, Happy Valley Tea Estate offers a chance to witness the intricate process of tea production. In 1845 Englishman David Wilson established the estate, which spreads over 177 hectares (437 acres) at a height of 2,100 m (6,800 ft). After a narrow, steep downhill trail, you'll spot the factory with its slightly tilted tin roof, surrounded by tea gardens all over the slopes. Hire a guide to fully grasp the estate's history and economic purpose, and afterwards visit the well-provisioned tea shop to purchase gifts and souvenirs.
