Formerly known as Bara Ringtong, Margaret's Hope gets its name from Lady Margaret, the daughter of the garden manager Mr. Cruikshank. Lady Margaret loved the garden and promised to return to it from England. But she died of a tropical disease on the way back to the garden and her hope remained unfulfilled. Hence the garden was rechristened as Margaret's Hope.
This is one of the most romantic gardens of the Goodricke group and qualitatively, listed amongst the top of the Darjeeling Estates with a loyal fan-following worldwide. The garden has romantic views of the Himalayas and is abundantly endowed with a variety of lichens and orchids. Two rivers flow through the garden and on most days, mist covers the emerald blanket that is the garden. A small lake on the garden is abundant with salamanders and attracts several researchers to the garden.
One can enjoy panoramic views of the valley from the Tea Deck, while sampling choicest Darjeeling teas with refreshments.
