Batasia Loop - Review

Batasia Loop is a semicircular, gigantic railway loop made mainly for the tourists. It is situated about 5 kilometers away from Darjeeling below the Ghoom Station. The loop contains the memorials of the Gorkha soldiers who laid down their lives during the Independence Struggle in 1947. It was first started in 1919. It is a marvel of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. The toy train crossing the Batasia Hill across the Batasia loop is a beautiful sighte to watch. It makes a 360 degree turn off the straight course. The loop reduces the sudden steepness of the hill and the hill steps on the sides of the loop making it a beautiful place to hang around.

The best way to view this place is of course by toy-train. The toy train makes stops for ten minutes at the Batasia Loop so you can see the amazing scenery that surrounds you. There is a small market near the loop as well. The loop along with its surrounding is so beautiful that the passerby is inclined to take pictures so be sure to keep your cameras handy.

  • Very nice park to visit in Darjeeling situated between the city, including toy train track, very green. We did not see the train passing by actually, but we knew it would pass (we were running out of our trip timing, we had to catch a plane). A must visit place, people will know about the films being shot in the toy train, they have a banner specifying the names, see in the pics. Highly recommended.

  • Had a wonderful experience here at BATASIA LOOP... EXCELLENT WEATHER.... EXCELLENT VIEW... EXCELLENT TREK LIKE EXPERIENCE... ASTONISHING TOY TRAIN ....HERE YOU ALSO FIND A POSTER DEPICTING FILMS THAT WERE SHOT EITHER HERE ON IN DARJEELING...A MUST VISIT PLACE IN DARJEELING...A PERFECT LOCATION FOR PHOTO LOVERS...HERE YOU CAN ALSO FIND A PILLAR IN MEMORY OF OUR SOLDIERS...

  • You have free time in hand and nothing, absolutely nothing to do then this is the place to visit. All you are seeing here is a train rotating once before heading to next stop. It's a heritage/old 🚆 so plenty of smoke will be in the air when it comes and it also makes lot of noise but that's about it. There is a pure vegetarian restaurant opposite this site that makes fresh and amazing food. For that, I will give 5 🌟

  • Its a loop of rail line near Darjeeling. The view from here is fantastic. During the morning hours its busy with tourists and vendor selling variety of things here. You get hats, bags and toys here. You get to see Darjeeling view through the binoculars and telescopes available there. Now it is also the memorial for gorkha warriors. A toy train ride through the loop is a must in a lifetime. The toy train is also known as Darjeeling Himalayan Rail which is a UNESCO heritage.

  • Visit this place to watch beautiful view of Darjeeling. They have telescopes to rent and the beautiful flowerbed. Also you can buy souvenir. And The Toy Train also halts here for few minutes
