“Spectacular kanchenjungha”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Its awesome!!! right word to describe Kanchenjunga. Couldn't stop staring at it from everywhere in Darjeeling and Sikkim. U can see it from most of the hotel rooms, chowrasta square, tiger hills etc. Its view from Tiger hills in the morning is amazing. Spellbound.... The first light of the dawn striking the peaks and u actually see the color of the peak change gradually from white to yellow to golden. Its a feeling that's very difficult to describe but worth getting up in the morning at 4 in winters and standing at tiger hills shivering and waiting for the dawn. Its the most beautiful thing.
U will fall in love with it. And when the sun is up then u can also see the mount Everest from tiger hills... sone pe suhaga..... Guys if u are planning to go to darjeeling then please do not skip tiger hills in the morning. Its an experience which u will never forget

“Worth getting up before dawn to see sun rising from behind the mountains”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Make sure you reach the Mall before sunrise and then walk down to the viewing areas. Later there was mist so the view is not so impressive.

“Darjeeling = Kanchenjunga”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

You take Kanchenjunga view away from Darjeeling, and people will simply stop visiting Darjeeling. We had clear and long views of the peak and the range.

“The Mountain !”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The views of the mountain and the entire range are quite spectacular ( we were there in end December ).
The first rays of the rising sun, the mountain looming large over Darjeeling all day, the setting sun lighting up the peak ...you have to see it to understand how majestic it is.
