Rongbull Retreat, a picturesque resort within situated in a tea garden
“The hills are alive with the sound of music,
With the songs, they have sung, for a thousand years.”
At Rongbull, your heart will sing every tune you know, once you step into this beautiful resort, tucked in the slope of a lush, Green, verdant tea garden. Step into this dream world, and create a lifetime of memories. Yes, you have to cross a somewhat steep downhill drive, but as they say, there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, what you find at the end of this drive is these multicoloured, rainbow-hued cottages, that just take your breath away. Time stands still here, endless and peaceful. As your morning starts with the sound of clucking hens, and the morning sun shines through like liquid gold, and the foggy, misty surroundings with colourful cottages, make it look like a scene from OZ. You will thank the universe for being part of this and for just being there.
