Batasia Loop



Batasia Loop is a famous loop situated on the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway between Ghoom and Darjeeling, in West Bengal. Constructed in 1879 it is an engineering marvel and feat where the train takes a very unique turn. The meter-gauge toy train winds its way over this loop. Batasia Loop is just five kilometers from Darjeeling.

Batasia Loop is a photographer’s paradise.

The War Memorial, constructed in memory of the brave sons of Darjeeling who died for the country since Independence in 1947, is worth visiting.
