Need to start at 4 am and is a one hour drive from the city. The sun rise is pretty cool with its rays making the kanchanjunga change colors from off white to golden to white. One can see the different shades of blue in the sky with moon also visible. It seems the whole city is there with so... More

Get up before 4 am and drive for 20 Km to reach this overcrowded spot. Walk up to the top constantly harassed by Coffee vendors. The place is bad with too many people. the sunrise average..better sunrises at many places in India. Kanchenjunga is mostly in clouds... Moreover Kanchenjunga is visible from lots of spots in Darjeeling (Batasia Loop). Sheer... More

This is probably the best view one can capture in his eyes for the lifetime. Wait for 2 hours at the chilling peak of the mountain makes you frozen but it all worth when the splendid view of sunrise appears. This could be probably one of the best mornings i ever had. No doubt tiger hill point enthralled me with... More

You just can't miss the Tiger Hill if you are at Darjeeling. The sunrise, the golden sun rays falling on the Kanchenjunga, the coffee, the chilled weather makes this place stand apart from other places at Darjeeling. One thing i would like to suggest everyone is to opt for the trek route from Tiger Hill to Ghum. It is a... More

Tiger hill is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Darjeeling to capture the mesmerizing panoramic view of the great Himalayan mountain range especiallythe snow capped Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world and how it gradually changes colors as the first rays of the sun shines on it. It is just beautiful with a breathtaking view. Meeting... More

We visited there on 29th Morning. We reached there around 4:45pm. But sun rise happens at 6am. No different view of sun rise. I felt, there was no use to wake up so early that too in cold and go there. Its better you sleep in hotel or roam around instead of spending 4 hours of visit, just to see... More

Tiger Hill is essentially a car park with a chai tent and a view...or not, as was the case on the morning I visited. Darjeeling is a foggy place and this is part of it's sweet and otherworldly allure. Vistas emerge on their own time and many a tourist will not see Kanchenjunga during a week long visit, so if...

Tiger Hill is a famous spot near Ghoom for seeing the sun rise as well as the beautiful snow capped Kanchenjunga in the first rays of sunshine over it. Sunrise in Tiger Hill is a major tourist attraction of Darjeeling. Tiger Hill becomes very crowded just before sunrise to see the breathtaking panoramic view of the sunrise. Enjoying the amazing...
