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.
- The whole region along with the enclosures and a bridge that enhances the arrangement is around the range of 50,000 square feet. It has been secured with grass and enhanced with both seasonal and enduring blooms and bushes.

Beautiful garden and sculptures. Walking around feels amazing. One can get wonderful views of the city from here. A narrow gauge toy train track runs across the garden. It's a must visit place in Darjeeling.
You can enjoy toy train there. Beautiful park. Photogenic place. Beautiful surroundings. Through binocular you can see china's hill.
Nothing to see at all except a garden. And the garden is also not that beautiful. You will get more beautiful gardens in Kalingpong. The place is only good for hiring Nepali cloths and to have photos in that attire.
