Batasia Loop was commissioned in 1919 because it was an engineering requirement for the toy train to be able to handle a steep gradient. Just after Ghoom (which is the highest railway station) there is a sharp fall as the toy train moves towards Darjeeling. There was no way the toy train could negotiate such a drastic fall of about 140ft unless there was a way to somehow reduce the gradient of the slope.

Batasia Loop was created by the British to counter such sharp descent. You won't even realize how the toy train actually descends by about 140ft as it completes the loop through a large circular area and on a gentle slope and then crosses its own track near the beginning of the loop through a tunnel below. It is considered as one of the greatest engineering feats.
 
You can walk along the track and complete the loop yourself. We do it every time we are there. Or take the many pathways in the garden and walk around, enjoy the many flowers and the surroundings. 
 
There is also an Eco Garden in Batasia. It provides a lot of information about organic farming and plantations in Darjeeling. Here you will find many rare species of plants like the Gingko biloba. And there are Rhododendrons, Silver Firs and even tea plants. 
 
Open Hours, Fees & Facilities 
Daily 5am to 8pm. There is an entry fee of Rs. 15/- per person. 
There are pay & use toilets for ladies and gents located inside at one end.

If you take a car or a taxi, it takes about 20 minutes from Darjeeling town to reach the Batasia Loop (along Hill Cart Road). The taxi will drop you or wait below at the parking by the roadside. You need to walk up to the ticket counter, purchase entry tickets and then enter into the loop.
