Heart of Darjeeling Town.... Roam around mall road... it is nice.. on a clear day Kanchenjunga is visible.. You can have horse ride.. but very crowded... Be careful during shopping here and do a good bargain....

Market & good food are in close proximity. Loved Keventers and Gleneries... Awesome. Apple pie from Gleneries is a must!

Chowrasta is really a nice place to spend time. Many benches are placed for tourists. It is really a typical hilly area common place. There is also 'the mall market',

If you are bored in the evening, you can take a casual stroll in this square. Horse ride is available for take you through the rasta - otherwise it's pretty ordinary place to hang out.

A great place to just sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy the beauty of the hills. A great place to enjoy pony rides around the entire mall area, with a clear view of kalimpong, sikkim and adjoining hills.

Chowrasta is really a nice place to spend time. Many benches are placed for tourists. It is really a typical hilly area common place. There is also 'the mall market', which is a good market for local products. You can buy umbrella, shorts, etc.
