During a clear morning, the view of Sunrise and the mighty Kanchenjungha mountain facing the sun gives great views. The colors of the first ray of sun paints on the mountain range with brilliant shades of Golden-orange-red, as the colors of rainbow plays on the sky.

It the highest point in the Darjeeling area, Tiger Hill is best known for the dazzling sunrise view of the Kanchenjunga and the snow covered peaks of the entire eastern Himalayan range. On a clear day (if you are lucky) you can even see the mount Everest from here. Tiger Hill is located 11km from the Darjeeling Town and takes... More

I went to Tiger Hill as a part of an arranged sightseeing tour. The car picked me up from my hotel at 4 AM in the morning and I was really excited for something truly different and magnificent. Luckily I was there in a clear sky morning and I did see a very good looking sunrise and reflections in the... More

nice sun rise in the morning at 06:17. But one has to go very early in morning to take good place to see. Take 40 rs super deluxe ticket to sit in covered area because in morning there is severe cold.

Comes as a part of 3 point tour of Darjeeling viz tiger hill, ghoom monastery and batasia loop. Start your day early at 4.30 am for a 6 am sunrise. A lot depends on your luck to view the majestic my kachendzonga. Tickets to be purchased for viewing the sunrise. 4 categories- 1) rs 10 for open air view 2)... More

If one is not mesmerised enough by the Kanchenjunga range; the drive to the Tiger Hills (and of course the way down too - as both experiences are poles apart) is something to be worth experiencing.

Had been heree as a kid, looong back. But i still remember the scenic beauty and the chills of this place. Not recommended for old people/toddlers as the temperature might drop a lil too much at times. Also, gets a little crowded at peak times. All in all, a must see

Since I like cold weather, I personally enjoyed the beautiful view, took pictures from every possible direction. The way the colours of sunrise play with the mountains is worth watching. But such views are best enjoyed in a calm serene atmosphere. And for us, the peace was disturbed because the place was too crowded, with hundreds of people trying to... More
