Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Reviews - Write a Review
Tiger Hill is located in Darjeeling, in the Indian State of West Bengal.This daily morning spectacle (views are best in autumn and spring) is a major tourist attraction, and you'll find hundreds of jeeps leaving Darjeeling for Tiger Hill every morning at 4am – traffic snarls en route are quite common. At the summit you can pay to stand in the pavilion grounds or warm up in one of the heated lounges (₹30 to ₹100 with tea). It can be a real bunfight here, so if you prefer your Himalayan views in solitude you might want to try somewhere else.
Tiger Hill is located 11km (6.8 miles) from Darjeeling town and above Ghoom. It's the highest point in Darjeeling hills at an altitude of 8482 feet (or 2590 meters). The best season to see the dazzling snow covered peaks as the sun rises is between Mid October to December. At sunrise, the peaks of Kangchenjunga are illuminated before the sun is seen at lower elevations.Very beautiful to view sun rise and it's effects on the Kanchenjunga mountain the world's 3rd highest peak. The peak shines golden yellow when the sun rising from valley at the east casts it's golden light on it. The view is so much wonderful. Needs to be there very early to get a good spot to stand. Place get very much crowded as the point has very less area on top. Traffic starts as early as 3:30 am in morning. Be prepared for cold wind blast.
Famous for majestic Sunrise view. Fantastic experience. Start around 3 am to get good place to see sunrise.
Sunrise at its best Fantastic view of Darjeeling, Kanchenjunga you can even see Sikkim and plains of Siliguri from there if weather permits you can as well view tip of MT Everest from there,,,the sitting stand for guests is still under construction....
Reach the place before sunrise and then watch the magic of the place through your own eyes....shades of sunlight at Kanchenjunga and the beauty of Sunrise just one word MAGICAL!!!
