Just unlucky

It was a very early morning start to get tickets to the top room but well worth it. Unfortunately on the day we went it was cloudy and we could only see the mountain tops.

The road to tiger hill was very scenic, however even better was the view of Kanchenjunga from Tiger hill. It was dark and very cold when we reached there at around 4 am, but watching the sunrise made it worthwhile. We went by a shared taxi, cost Rs. 250 per head. On the way back, they also took us to...

We started from our hotel at 4am and reached the Tiger Hill quite early, but there were so many people who had reached even before us. We were lucky to find a good spot. There are no lights in hill so a torch would be handy. Had a small cup of coffee for 10 rupees. We saw the sun rise... More

No doubt Tiger Hill is one of the top recommended things to do in Darjeeling, however, we got amazing views of the range from various points (and in fact from one of our hotels) in Sikkim, and that too without the hassle of having to start our day at 3am, and trying to get a view in the midst of...

Totally depends on luck... Huge crowed you need to be up for the whole night and reach by 2am at the spot if you really want to access the view.. Else ignore it and try something else..

Wake up early and leave for tiger hill and witness one of the best Sunrise view in India. The climate is pleasant and if you are lucky and there are no clouds, the view will b really amazing Leave your hotel early, like 3am maybe, If you leave late there is a possibility u witnessing traffic

Seeing the Sunrise from Tiger hill is one of its kind experience. We woke up at 3.30 and start at 4 a.m. We reached there at around 4.30 am but Rs.40 ticket already sold out so we adjusted for Rs.30 ticket. However from 1st floor also we were not able to get a proper seat so we come out side... More

if the view is not very good, there is no point to stay there for more than 5 minutes. No walking required, the hill top with a big concrete parking area is reachable by car
