If you are unlucky, and the day is very misty, you will see nothing. If, however, you are in luck, it is an astonishing sight to see snow-clad Himalayan mountains emerge through the dawn. They are over 200 miles away, but it seems as if they are very close, because they are so high. One looks for them on the... More

Tiger hills is where people go to see the sun rise and the golden coloured Kanchenjunga hills. Tour operators arrange for cabs from the hotel, which start from the Darjeeling city by about 3:30 AM. We reached Tiger hills at 4:30. We took the pass to enter the hill. There are three types - one where you sit in the... More

Don't go unless it's guaranteed to be clear (which is unlikely). You will be stuck in a traffic jam for hours coming down the mountain.

One of the best experience ever. I had never seen something like that before and I am 100% confident that I'll never forget the beauty I had the chance to witness. Seeing the sunrise from behind the Himalaya chain was amazing. Even the way to get there from the city was wonderful itself: from the car we rented, we could... More

Tiger Hill, the highest point, a short drive away from the town is ideal for hiking and trekking through the day. Besides amazing views of the Kanchenjunga Range, the Tiger Hill renders perfect views of the sunrise. During peak tourist season, you'll see hundreds of tourists get up as early as four in the morning to view the beautiful sunrise... More

If you get lucky and get a clear view of Kanchenjunga, the early wakeup will be worth it. The peak is crowded every morning with hundreds of tourists who make the jeep ride from Darjeeling. For foreigners, the crowds are a bit overwhelming, but part of the experience.

Tiger hill is famous for its beauty at Sunrise. First rays of Sun falls on the tiger point and it just lightens up. Must check the weather before going since it will not be visible in fog.

This place is generally shrouded in cloud and the chances of seeing the actual sunrise, is thin as there is cloud all around. Once the sun rises though, the light on the mountain peaks, make the visit worthwhile. More on : http://wp.me/p4EGyN-c4
