    We were taken up Tiger Hill as part of our India tour, stating off from the hotel in Darjeeling at 03.30 am. It was a long wait in the cold to see the sun rise. When it did happen we were lucky that it was very clear and the sun shining on the Himalayas was quite spectacular.
    At that time in the morning we were some of the first to arrive and could choose our places in the stand area. By the time of the sunrise the place was very busy.
    If you're coming by your own transport it's a good idea to park it along the exit road - the car parks are filled bumper to bumper and it must take a very long while getting away.

    We visited the loop through the toy train and I would recommend that as a better option when compared with going by car as there tends to be huge jams around the point. The place is beautiful with a memorial for our soldiers and several small shop keepers selling their wares around it. Watching the train loop around is a wonderful experience.

    Sourini Tea Estate is a beautiful place, although the place is very lonely. Visited the place last year in the month of December 2023 for one official meeting.

    The visit to the park on slope of the mountain is really charming. It is exciting for kids also to walk via the trails and enjoy the bends in the misty weather, though it might be tough for aged people to hike. The trail leads to a pond uphill, which is around 20-30 minutes hike from the gate. The place around the lake is a dreamy one, so as the pine forest behind the lake. The pond is a must visit to get the real charm of the spot.

    Need to get here latest by 8 A M as there is a queue at the ticket counter. The same opens around 10 - 10.30. Else, you may have to wait a long time for your turn.

    The best thing to do in Darjeeling is get up early morning and take a stroll around the observatory hill. The viewpoint is bustling with energy - all tourists crowded there to get a view of the Kanchanjunga and the locals on their daily morning walk and exercise routine. Tea/coffee vendors are also there in the morning, allowing you to enjoy a sip of hot drink.
