Photographer's Note

Aboard the Toy Train from Siliguri to Darjeeling just below Ghoom and 5 kms from Darjeeling is the Batasia Loop,an engineering marvel and feat.
Almost imperceptibly , the railway line negotiates a circle and descends 1,000 ft in altitude. The train's figure 8s and Z maneuvers are as picturesque as the flowers, streams and water - falls. At Batasia - windy place - one gets a grand view of the town of Darjeeling perched on the slopes of hills and Mt. Kanchenjunga in the background.
The War Memorial constructed in the memory of brave sons of Darjeeling who died in different actions since 1947 , is worth a visit. A glorious view of snowy peak and town can be seen from this place.
