Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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.

  • In fact, it's a park surrounded by the railway track. The train chuggs in from one side and take a full circle and leave the park through an overbridge over the track where it entered. The train stops here for 15 mins to enjoy the loop. Even if you travel by the train, once you must be there while the train arrive and depart to get magnificent view of the steam engine rake. A must see spot at Darjeeling, but see the train timetable and be there, otherwise it's just a normal park.
  • This pleace is amezing .. spent 2 quality hours over there. The view of the mountains from here is breathtaking
  • Amazing place with a mesmerizing view of Kanchenjunga and other Himalayan snow peaks along with engineering marvel loops oftracks of toy train.
  • The place has changed since my last visit about 4 years ago, the toy train now stops for 10 minutes compared to 20 minutes earlier. The place looks cheaper without the memorial no more maintained.
