It is worth getting up early and driving to Tiger Hill to watch the sun rise on Kanchenjunga. Pay the extra rupees to watch it from the Deluxe sitting lunge.

Great view from the Joy ride and while travelling through out the city. Kanchenjunga is virgin mountain and it is displaying like snow floating over clouds.
