I visited Darjeeling in last January, this year. My friends arranged a jeep ride, at dawn, to Tiger-Hill. We were supposed to arrive to the place not later than 4 am. The road is not that desperate as we saw lots of normal vehicles as well. It was so cold. Local ladies sold coffee, with their big thermos flasks hanging... More

Definitely head to Tiger Hill for early morning viewing of the sunrise on Kenchenjunga. Pay the few rupees it is for a view from the deluxe lounge.

You have to be lucky to get a view of some of the main peaks. The road turns off the main road from Ghum, is very steep and not well maintained, one has to be there before sunrise and it has to be a clear morning. I was lucky to view the sudden change in colour of the mountains from... More

We stayed in Central Nirvana 28th August with our family. Tiger Hill is very good. Tiger Hill probably offers the best views of the sunrise, cloudy, sunny mountains shining in all their glory.

As we travelled during off season, it was just the effort of reaching up there. The weather was foggy and we could not see anything. A very imporatant observation was the road up to tiger hill. The road is not maintained at all. if the govt can put some money into the development of these roads, am sure the toursim... More

The path was rocky and inconsistent with high and very high steps, upward and downward slopes, and if you banged into Mother- Earth you were lucky because it was impossible to avoid collision with another human being. There was so much crowd on the way that we could advance without using our legs, I did not dare to think this... More

We were lucky to get superb views and the icing on the cake was the Hot Coffee in the freezing weather. Totally worth waking up at 4am for this even though I have been there twice before.
