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.

  • 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.
  • Very nice place. You can dress up in local dress and take photos. Beautiful view of entire Darjeeling can be seen from here. Mountain from India and Nepal could be seen from here in open eyes. Very neat and clean.
  • Great place to visit. A small memorial and a garden as ode to soldiers. Entry fee is 15/- . The toy train too passes through the loop on its journey. Good view of mountains from here. Also telescope views of mountains are available at charges of 30/-. Also photographs in local dress is available here. Decent eating joints also available nearby.
  • Great war memorial. You would love to see when toy train pass this point. Enjoy great view at this site too
  • This is a tribute to Gorkha war heroes. Toy train takes a complete 360 degree turn here. The place itself is quite beautiful. You can get a complete view of the Darjeeling city atop here. With a telescope and a bit of guidance from the locals, you can even spot the different points/places of the Himalayan ranges which are visible from here.
