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.

The chowrasta mall area is a large open almost circular place with dozens of benches which are almost always fully occupied throughout the day and evenings except really early mornings. Around the mall are some beautiful shops especially the ones that offer tea, and local crafts. Also you can find a fantastic, really large bookshop that houses a beautiful collection... More

We had heard all bad reviews about Darjeeling before we experienced it. I feel, travel is all about what you like and dislike and different people will have different opinion about the same place. I havent seen the old Darjeeling, but whatever I saw, I completely fell in love with. Darjeeling is beautiful and Chowrasta still has the old world... More

Sit at one of the tea places (or even CCD) and just let your eyes roam. If you are at the Chowrasta at the time of the evening entertainment, be prepared for the usual noise and hustle bustle of tourists, but over the noise you can feel the peace of Darjeeling.
