Observatory Hill is a rising hill situated above Chowrasta Square, around 2 km from the Darjeeling Himalaya railway station, just above the Mall Road in the picturesque hill town of Darjeeling. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Darjeeling as it offers a panoramic view of the mountains along with the presence of various Hindu and Buddhist temples including Kanchenjunga Temple, Mahakal temple and Tibetian Memorial Shrine.
The tourist attraction is mainly visited by adventure seekers who want to enjoy a mesmerizing view of the mountains after trekking along with people having religious beliefs. It can take around 15 minutes for tourists to visit Observatory Hill from the Mall Road and in the narrow and steep uphill path, tourists have to go through a small cave which is revered by temples. The entire walk is filled with colourful flag and small yet noticeable shrines with the peaceful full sound of devotional belts. It is recommended for older people to take some rest on side benches while trekking to the tourist attraction as it can be extremely tiring.
