This is the best place to be in Darjeeling. But recently they have made a Mall Market in the Mall Road on the hill view side. This should be removed ans it is affecting the overall serenity of the place.

The place is well maintained and buzz with tourist of all age groups. Some of the cities famous tea/book and handicrafts shops are located here.. Any visit to Darjeeling is incomplete without your visit to CHOWRASTA. Virtually every hill station have this type of central point.

The Central point of the Darjeeling where you can find chairs fixed at the boundary of it, will give you the experience of any foreign country , no beggar at all and you will enjoy Tea, Coffee and most properly MIMI it is noodles with sabzi and worth tasting it.
