The majestic breathtaking view of the peak from Tiger Hills along with the sunrise was awesome. There are again multiple views of the same from various location in and around Darjeeling. Everyone of them were equally great to see.

We were up very early to go up to Tiger Mountain to see this at sunrise - along with hundreds of others and although the cloud only cleared for a few minutes it was beautiful - had really lovely views from y hotel room at the Cedar Inn

Even after everything is said and done about Darjeeling and how it has gone downhill nothing can take away from the awesome and beauty of the mother ship Kanchenjunga

Visited Darjeeling and seeing the Kanchenjunga range just took my breath away. Grand, majestic are some of the words I would use to describe the range.

What I really liked during our trip to Darjeeling was that Kanchenjunga was visible from all main roads of Darjeeling. The clear and sunny weather during October 2014 also helped.It was as if the mountain was maintaining vigil over the town.Next trip I am planning for Western Sikkim to have an even closer view of it.

Changing color of Kanchenjunga ..Tip at Tiger Hill Observatory ,acquire seat at Top Left hand or say West side as Mountain peak is visible from that side with nill disturbance..Focus more on Mountain peak than Sun and changing color of peak will last only few seconds .. All amazing and may not be experienced any where else..
