“Mountain Wearing A Golden Necklace !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

It's a Must Visit Place of Darjeeling.we woke up early 3:00 A.M in the morning and Started our journey around 3:30 A.M from Darjeeling to Tiger Hill .As The Road was Rush in The Early Morning ,many no of vehicles heading towards the same destination so it took around 1 hour to reach the place.Around 5:10 A.M we could see the sunrise ,The Panorama Beauty of nature was Divine .The sky was clear and the first ray of sunrise falling on the mountains was Beautiful As if the mountains wearing a golden necklace. Start Your journey very early in the morning to avoid the rush .A must visit place for every travelers traveling to Darjeeling.

“Good view of sunrise over mountains but dirty place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Tiger hill is unkempt, dirty and not cared for- which is sad given how many tourists visit it everyday! The view of sunrise over mountains is good but we did not see the best of it as skies were not 100% clear. Revisit- Maybe!

“frozen, awesome views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

lots of people say that Tiger Hill is the best place to view the Kanchenjunga. for me the Tiger Hill is the best place to view the early mountain skies of North Bengal. the hues change from dark red to pink to orange to yellow and then silver and white and gray. keep watching - and suddenly the huge mountains appear.
take sufficient protection from the chilly winds up there and take care of the small ones on a crowded dawn.

“Awesomest experience ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

One of most beautiful site ever seen in my life time. The sunrise was mesmerizing. though the sun rise was at around 6 but you have start early only to capture the top most sitting . after the sun rise the view of the tiger hills becoming golden was sight of a lifetime.

“one of the best place in Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Its one of the must see place before you die...
Its not possoble to make some one understand the view in words......
On one hand the sun is rising and on the other hand KANCHANDJANGA is changing its color with the riflection..
Its little hard to get up early in the morning n go as the road is also bad. But it worth..
If u travel early then u got to buy the ticket of 40INR n sit on the top of the building where there is sofa sitting and only 40 person is allowed
