By far the highlight of our holiday...just to see the first rays of sunlight on the mighty Kanchenjunga was an unforgettable and priceless experience. Go early at least 2 hours before sunrise to both get a good spot and parking space!!

Saw them for the first time in my like. I was happy like a kid.. shivering in 2 degree.. please carry enough woollen cloths so that you don’t become ice. There will be a lot of people at the location so take place facing mountains.

Though the views are breath taking and the drive quite pleasant, there isn't much to do here especially because there isn't even a single place to sit. There is no washroom close by either. Really needs development given the major tourist pull this place has.

Depends on how far you get parking from the Tiger Hill viewing point. The climb is quite steep
