Its just an average place with nothing to offer to tourists. You can take stroll/walk for 10 mins. Shops offer local handi crafts, wollen cloths etc. If you like to do street shopping then its worth for you to visit.

Bought a warm jacket for my wife. Another warm sweater for my mother-in-law. This place has all the items that can be bought in Darjeeling!

A lovely wide open flat space in the middle of bustling Darjeeling. Plenty of shops to browse, places to grab food and drinks and pony rides to be had.

Its worth the walk up. The mall / Chowrasta is the most iconic part of Darjeeling. On the top there's a beautiful open space where live music performances are occasionally organised. Its definitely worth a visit irrespective of whether you are a solo traveler or a couple or a group.

The Chowrasta or Mall is still a great place to walk around, shop, relax on benches and people watch, enjoy the cafes and restaurants. It used to be the meeting place for friends and still is, although more crowded with street hawkers and stalls, it still has a great ambiance and wonderful views both from the cafes and the roads....
