About Batasia Loop

Sightseeing in Darjeeling is incomplete without seeing the famous Batasia Loop garden. You get a 360-degree view of the landscape of the city and snow-covered peaks of Himalayan ranges from this location. A favorite tourist spot, visitors gather here to see the toy train make a complete spiral loop as it hoots and whistles its way from the garden. If you reach at this spot around 9 am, you will see the vendors hurriedly wrapping up their business before the arrival of the train. A war memorial in honour of Gorkha soldiers of Darjeeling is also established in the center of this garden. It comprises a large raised platform which is oval in shape having 37-foot length and 24-foot breadth. A granite cenotaph and a bronze statue of Gorkha soldier stand in the middle of it. 20 minutes drive from the town; you can reach this place easily by hiring a taxi.
