Situated at an altitude of 2,590m (8,482 ft.) and 11-km from the town, this spot has earned international fame for the magnificent view of the sunrise over "Kanchenjunga" and other eastern Himalayan peaks. Even Mount Everest, the world's highest peak, is visible from here.
LLOYD'S BOTANICAL GARDEN
A place for nature loving people. It has a fine collection of Himalayan plants, flowers and orchids. It is below the bus and taxi stand near the market. The hothouses are well worth a visit.
Senchal Lake is very near to the Tiger Hill. It supplies domestic water to Darjeeling. It is one of the popular picnics spot.
Dhirdham Temple is the most evident Hindu temple here and good thing is that it is just below the railway station and is like copy of the famous Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu.
BARBOTEY ROCK GARDEN
Situated 10 km from town, is a very attractive picnic spot with natural water falls. The Rock Garden was constructed by The Gorkha Hill Council Tourism Department. The road to the garden is a steep and winding one almost touching the plain. But the sight of the natural waterfall makes you forget all the pain and weariness.
Just below the Rock Garden is the recently constructed Gangamaiah park .Tourists enjoy the beauty of this park as much if not more than that of the Rock Garden. Taxis are easily available to reach you to this location. However local people prefer walking and usually go there for picnics. Outside the garden are available some lovely souvenirs of Darjeeling. So don't forget to take one at your next visit.
