  • It's a nice place with lots of good food and places to hang out and walk. Glenarys is the best recommend place to eat here. The Mal road is at walking distance. A bit over crowded in the may June season but still good.
  • Great place for shopping you will get lot of warm cloths bags. and street food . There is is big screen is installed where we enjoy matches. Special abouth this place is entry of all kind of vehicles are restricted
  • Really good place to spend an evening. Heard you could see the Kanchenjunga from here but it was cloudy and couldn't catch a glimpse :/ nice bazar place. The amphitheatre and the big screen adds to the beauty of the place. Must visit if you're in Gangtok.
  • The most happening place in darjeeling. No vehicles allowed in there. Take help of locals to do your shopping. Often the best of the shops are located well inside. Enjoy the street food- Momos and Hakka Noodles. You don't get soup:) Most of the shops close down by 7 ish, so plan ahead!
  • It's an open flat place of Darjeeling town. it's a public place and people love to go there for passing there time by chatting with friends and families. the natural beauty is awesome.
