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.

  • It is a nice place. The views from here are awesome. But now it became a hawkers market. Everywhere hawkers are sitting and picture studio are there. All person are busy with shopping and wants a perfect picture for a lovely memory that people forget to watch the scenic beauty of these place. At last the Selfie people spoil the environment.
  • Beautiful war memorial and tourist spot in Darjeeling. 4 KM away from city centre, a nice place to spend some time with friends and family. Watch the beautiful Kanchenjunga range through telescope and enjoy the view of entire Darjeeling town from the well maintained park. If one is lucky, may watch the Heritage Great Himalayan Railway Toy train passing through the Horse shoe shaped loop that encircled the park.
  • A real beauty in the monsoon months. The toy train stops here for 15 mins. It has a war memorial. Beautiful view of the mountains from the place and for photography both.
  • To live by the sword and to die by the sword. This place was established to honor the soldiers that gave their life for the country. It's a nice place.
  • Very nice place to visit during Darjeeling trip. On a clear day view of Kanchanjhanga range from this place is mesmerising. Entry fee for adults is Rs. 20/- and for children under 10 years of age is free. This is a loop formation of famous world heritage Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. Attached garden is beautiful and maintained very well.
