Batasia Loop | Batasia Loop and the War Memorial

The Batasia Loop was created to lower the gradient of ascent of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway in Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India. At this point, the tracks spiral around over itself through a tunnel and over a hilltop.

Location of Batasia Loop:

It is 5 km from Darjeeling, below Ghum. There is also a memorial to the Gorkha soldiers who sacrificed their lives after the Indian Independence in 1947.

From the Batasia Loop one can get a panoramic view of Darjeeling town with the Kanchenjunga and other snowy mountains in the back-drop.
