Rock Garden And Ganga Maya Park Overview

Ranked 5 of 77 sightseeing in Darjeeling

The Barbotey Rock Garden, popularly known as the Rock Garden at the Chunnu Summer Falls is located about 10 kilometres from Darjeeling. This and the Ganga Maya Park are the favourites in Darjeeling when it comes to spending lazy Saturdays.

The Rock Garden was constructed by the Gorkha Hill Council Tourism Department and was inaugurated by the GNLF supremo, Mr Subhash Ghising. The picturesque view from the hills provides you with just the thing you were looking for when you planned your trip to Darjeeling. The tea gardens all over the hills, beautiful flower gardens and beautiful waterfalls make the place a heavenly location. There’s a peaceful lake on top of the garden where, tired after long walks, visitors can spend a few Calm moments.

Ganga Maya Park is located about 3 kilometres further than the Rock Garden. This park gets its name from an innocent victim of the police firing that took place during the GNLF agitation. There is also a small lake with excellent boating facilities which will make sure your trip is a memorable one. Professional dancers also perform Gorkha folk dances to entertain the tourists.

A taxi to and from these tourist attractions will make your travel easier.

A Good place to visit with children

A tourist spot from Darjeeling nested below a Tea Garden. The drive from Darjeeling is good with lovely postcard views. The main attraction - the waterfall is a great selfie location. The children will love this place with lot of activities available like rock climbing. The scenery and the location is also very good.

Awesome place to visit

Rock Garden and Ganga Maya park are the best places in Darjeeling. It is 18 km away from Darjeeling city. There are fountains, a lot of greenery and cave in the rock garden. At ganga maya park, you can take a boat ride in the lakes. Beautiful sculptures, greenery and a giant rock along with a reservoir is there which are nice selfie points. Overall, a must visit place.

Good place to spend time

Park is 30 km far from Darjeeling main city but good enough to visit and pay for it. Very good part is its decoration by various plants and awesome water fall cross all over it. Nearby tea gardens also are very beautiful to look and enjoy.

Well maintained garden and local dress in an attraction

The Rock Garden is well maintained and the photo in local dress is one of the attraction. You can test local food at very reasonable rate. The idea and the concept of utilizing the natural view is very good. The further development of site is under process and after completion of said extension the site might be one of the main attraction of Darjeeling.

Decent place to relax in Darjeeling

It is a nice park. The drive to rock garden from Darjeeling is very nice. You witness tea estates on either side of the road and it was a fun ambience.

Good place if you are a nature lover and crazy-for-pics

The place is though not worth what the private cars charge. But if you are a nature lover and crazy-for-pics person you will love the place. Rock Garden provides the perfect background scenery for couple pics, family pics, group pics. Just awesome. There are food stalls outside. Which sell yummy. Finger-licking momos.
