Located in Darjeeling District, Nuxalbari Tea Estate (alt 700 ft.) is a pleasantly wooded,1200-acre property just 15 minutes from Bagdogra Airport and 1 hour from New Jalpaiguri (NJP) Railway Station. It nestles snugly in the lap of the Eastern Himalayas, and is a tropical paradise with lush vegetation and a variety of birds. We also often have bands of wild langurs, the solitary leopard and herds of wild elephants criss-crossing our estate.
Nuxalbari Tea Estate is perfectly located for exploring the neighbourhood. It is a 2 hour drive to the town of Darjeeling, 2.5 hours to Kalimpong, 4.5 hours to Gangtok, Sikkim and a 5 hour drive to Bhutan.
Once forming the southern border of the Kingdom of Sikkim, Nuxalbari, like the rest of north Bengal came under the British after the Anglo-Bhutanese war in the 19th Century.
Soon after, British colonial adventurers began their experiments with tea plants smuggled from China, planting estates all over the Darjeeling area and beyond.
Nuxalbari Tea Estate was established in 1884, and incorporated into a tea company in 1910.
In 1967 a violent peasant and student uprising began in the small village adjacent to the estate. Though the Naxalite revolution claimed many lives Nuxalbari Tea Estate remained untouched.
