The Heritage and Elite Stays of North Bengal: Fagu Reserve
Traveling through the Royal Chimney's of North Bengal..........My grandfather always recited the stories of the times when Darjeeling was ruled by British. He criticized the laws of the current times and boasted about the rigidness, punctuality and the accuracy of British rule in Darjeeling. He said, “If any plantation area was found grazed by some stray cattle then they measured the footprints of the cattle and then at last caught its owners. So there was no escape, this was their way of ruling.” His stories created imaginary pictures in my mind of white people wearing Khakee shorts, hats, boots and shiny rolls with golden capped heads in their hands. Their Bungalows mostly built on the top of a hill, towered the villages that served them with laborers in their tea gardens and other small industries that made Darjeeling their summer capital of India.
Starting from the foothills, my first option was to explore Fagu Tea Garden that falls next to the renowned tourism circuit of Samsing-Jaldhaka. The tea garden located on the hills rising from the plains is the first highlands to measure the high altitude mountains covered with heritage forests of Neora Valley National Park.
