The Observatory Hill is a small hill which one can walk upto. It is located close to the Mall and also has the Mahakal temple on the way up. The walkway is well maintained and very peaceful. One gets good views of the mountain ranges...More

What a wonderful place to walk to, sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. The prayer flags, bells and incense make it very memorable. And there are monkeys.

Observatory hill is the best place for people to sit and observe the Kanchenjunga ranges. This is a most peaceful place to relax and to get synchronised with the nature. This place offers spectacular views of the Kanchenjunga ranges.

The Observatory Hill near the Mall provides some of the most beautiful views of Darjeeling. Take a walk from the city to here and watch the hills. The Mahakal Temple is here as well.

Walk past main chowrasta Mall, Bhanu Bhavan and St Andrews church and the reach Observatory Hill. Best time to visit is just before twilight. You may club it with the visit to Mahakal temple.

Great place to get good views of the Kanchenjunga range. Loads of prayer flags. A few tea stalls. Good for an evening out with your better half.
