It is a mesmerizing toy train pathway that was brought into existence to reduce the elevation of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. Set amidst the lush green mountainside, Batasia Loop offers beautiful views of the valley and snowy abode of Mt. Kanchendzonga.
When the toy train meanders its way through the loops of the track, everything about this place seems dreamy. Also, the surrounding tunnels, hill-locked valley and little shops in the area makes Batasia Loop one of the top places to visit in Darjeeling.
It is recommended to visit the Loop after witnessing the sunrise at Tiger Hill. This is because the carpet of flowers that leads to Batasia Loop is quite splendorous, especially to the eyes that have witnessed the most beautiful sunrise ever. Additionally, the spiral railway track is a sight to behold for dreamers and artists. The entire scenery of the place often inspires people to create an art of their own.
