Batasia Loop, Darjeeling

4.1
Watch a large toy train pass through Batasia Loop, a spiral track meant to lower the gradient of ascent. This track uses tunnels to spiral over itself before eventually cresting a hilltop decorated with a garden. Explore the hilltop, which offers one of the best views of the town and the Himalayas. Follow the track on foot and complete the loop yourself, or just stick to the gardens and enjoy the views from one of the benches. Also, look for the war memorial in the center of the loop, built in 1995 to commemorate Gorkha soldiers who died in past wars.

  • Great place with a great view of the mountains. Centre of the park is a war memorial - a fitting tribute to the Martyrs of the land. Kudos to the wonderful idea of the toy train halting here. Momos and other eats served at the garden entrance is worth a try. Overall, a must see location
