Jungpana Tea Estate was planted by Henry Montgomery Lennox in 1899. It was subsequently managed by G.W.O’Brien, who was forced in the aftermath of the Second World War to sell it to the ruling Rana of Nepal.

The Kejriwal family took it over around 1956 and they continue till now. It is about 12 km from Kurseong in a rather remote and isolated place, inaccessible by any motorable road. It is connected through a snaking pathway, accessible only on foot. More than 350 steep steps leads to a footbridge across a small stream, Changey Khola. However your journey will be rewarded with some of the most aromatic and complex darjeelings available anywhere!
