Indians have a special relationship with tea and if you are a connoisseur of the beverage, then visiting the Hathikuli Tea Estate during your Kaziranga trip must be on your to-do list. The estate was initially owned by James Finlay and Company, which came to Assam from Scotland. Visiting the estate will give you a chance to try various kinds of tea like orthodox tea, black pepper tea and organic green tea, which are all produced here. The present-day plantation has been turned completely organic since it falls under the same ecological zone as the Kaziranga National Park. The name 'Hathikuli' is taken from Assamese words, 'hathi' meaning elephant and 'kuli' meaning frequently. Together, it means a place visited frequently by elephants. The tea gardens stretch for 15 km along the NH37 highway. The tea estate falls in two districts- Golaghat and Karbi-Anglong. Hathikuli is often visited by wild animals and birds.
