Ilam Tea Tasting Tour is for those travelers who would like to take the less visited path, this tour is a perfect endeavor. Nepal is indeed a land of diversity and the Janakpur – Ilam tour proves that. Taking you first to the charmingly chaotic city of Janakpur in the Terai area and then to the amazingly serene landscapes of the tea capital of Nepal – Ilam, this tour gives you a ride on a roller-coaster of new experiences.
Located almost on the border with India itself, Janakpur lies deep in the Terai region of Nepal, its culture completely different from the one around the capital and in the Himalayas. One of the city’s highlights is the Janaki temple, a big, Mughal baroque marble structure dedicated to the goddess Sita. Resembling India in many aspects and the Janaki temple being the only Rajput style architecture piece in Nepal, visiting Janakpur will provide you with the exotic atmosphere that one would expect in India on its various streets itself!
From the big hustle and bustle of the city of Janakpur, we bring you to Ilam – a hillstation known for its pristine environment and serene landscapes. It is ornamented with pine forests and wonderful aromas spread both from the innumerable trees and tea plantations. Taste traditional Nepali tea directly from where it’s made while enjoying the calming hills surrounding you.
Join us on an adventure of contrasts and experience a less known side of Nepal!
For those who want to prolong the trip and visit Darjeeling (in India), this option is possible upon letting us know ahead so that we can help you issuing Indian visa.
