Barbotey Rock Garden, Darjeeling

4.1
#4 of 18 in Parks in Darjeeling
Enjoy a view of scenic waterfalls at Barbotey Rock Garden, a multi-level picnic ground terraced around Chunnu Summer Falls and Ganga Maya Park. Cut into rocks at different levels, these flower gardens, trees, shrubbery, a small lake, and seating areas make a popular spot for local families. With scenic paths and guardrails allowing you to get close to the refreshing waterfall and milky streams of water cascading down the terraces, these multiple-tier gardens provide a nice relaxation spot. Tea shops and snack kiosks have sprung around. Located some 10 km (6.2 mi) from Darjeeling, the gardens are a major tourist attraction.

    This is nothing but a pathway constructed around a water stream. A small artificial lake having boating option but it's not really a place one enjoys who expects some natural scenic beauty. Good for c...  more »

    LOCATION: About 10km from Darjeeling town. Approached through good roads. Like all outskirts places, this too has only "Momo and Maggie" joints and no good restaurants around. PARK: Its laid on hilly terrain. Landscape is designed quite well using steep Contours and water stream very well creating the kaleidoscope of water bodies, vegetation and rocks. Yet walk around is not at all tiresome as the same is provided with many terraces to sit and chat around. Water fall is quite scenic and approachable for those who want to enjoy water. COULD be BETTER: No Public wash rooms. At one corner a private pay and use wash room but was quite dirty. The road divided the Park in literally 2 parts. Some internal connection could establish the continuity. No directional signage. Overall, a reasonably well maintained and clean premise. Usually not included in general list of itinerary yet one must make a point to visit.

    Another best crowed place we visited in Darjeeling. rock garden is best for enjoying waterfalls and rocks with flowers. but few places are dirty due to Tourists and authority should be cleaned regular basis. Entry price is reasonable and place is best for your sad moments to make you happy.

    Fantastic view. However be ready to sweat it out. The uphill walk may not be suitable for aged people. The view is worth the trek though.
