On a clear day you can see a beautiful sunrise over the Himalayas. It's advisable to leave as early as 3.45 in the morning as the viewpoint gets crowded and parking space would be much further down the hill requiring you to walk up a fair bit. You will get a view of the Kanchenjunga from here as well

The place is promoted as the best place to view sunrise in the hill. It is indeed the best place when the skies are clear. You need to reach the place early to get the best spot. On the flip side which is true with the entire Darjeeling hill, the place is crowded with many vehicles. People who reach early... More

the only reason about the tiger hill was perhaps to catch the sunrise... one needs to be there by 4am-5am... the later, the less strategic spot to get a good position to catch the sun... the sunrise is bout 5.45-6am... and depends on the weather condition on that morning, the fog may be what you see if it does not...

Maybe in went in the wrong season, but my first impression is that this place is just trying to make a quick buck. 1. It being the most well known place in darjeeling, is very very crowded even at 4 AM in the morning 2. They have 3 different floors for viewing , but these floor serve more as selling... More

It seems the best sunrise point where you can see golden kanchenjunga. However, its all luck . If weather is rainy or foggy, you might not get the awesome view.
