Giddapahar view point is 4 kilometers from Kurseong, provides a great view of the mountains and is a great place for clicking photographs. There is a temple dedicated to Goddess Durga which is carved out of rock called the Giddapahar Seti Mata Temple. Literally, Giddapahar means “Eagle’s hill” but is often thought of as “Eagle’s Cliff”.

Giddapahar is one of the other hills in Kurseong. It takes about 15 minutes by car from Kurseong town on Hill Cart Road towards Siliguri. The view point is accessible by stairway right from the roadside. You will need to enter through a gate and then climb the stairs.

On a clear day, one can have a good view of valleys and snow peaks including Mount Khangchendzonga. If you look towards the Hill Cart Road below, you can see the road winding down side by side with the toy train track. Giddapahar view point opens daily during the day time and there is no entry fee. One can park the car by the road side. It is a great place for clicking pictures.
