This is basically in the stop between Darjeeling and Ghum when one goes by the toy train. There is a war memorial here and one gets good views of the mountains on a clear day from here.

Situated at the Toy Train stop between Darjeeling and Ghoom (Ghum) this monument has a commanding view over the mountains and valleys of the Ghukas homeland which is peacefully aiming to become an autonomous state.

It is in the middle of the Batasia Loop. If you are in Darjeeling we will surely visit Batasia loop and you will not be able to miss the memorial. Overall nice place with a great view. The memorial itself is not that great if...More

The memorial represents greatness imbibed in the souls of the soldiers of the legendary Indian regiment.... but the spot is just an average affair with nothing more to offer, the view of Kanchenjunga is available from almost every where in darjeeling.
