The Tea Trails experience: cycling – Hatton
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Cycling through the tea country is a great way to take in the amazing views of the countryside.
EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION: After a hearty breakfast, you will enjoy a largely flat and downhill bike ride in the Castlereagh area. From your Tea Trails bungalow you will be taken along the paved estate roads that wind their way around the lake. The views are stunning, particularly on a clear morning. From here you will speed downhill to the base of the Laxpana waterfall, one of the highest in the country and then pause here and take a refreshing swim before settling down to a picnic lunch. Following lunch you can either ride out the uphill climbs or enjoy a sneaky transfer back to flatter terrain. By the time you reach your bungalow you will be deserving of a cup of fresh hot tea on the lawn.
