Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Reviews
Nice experience... Sunrise and the glimpse of Kanchenjunga is breathtaking. Need to reach early to get a better spot. The number of people is quite high. One should leave Darjeeling by 3.30 in the morning. The cars continues to stack up which makes you reach the Tiger hill a little bit more time and distance. Also it is always better to leave at last as other people will start leaving and you will get no jam while going back.
It's one of the famous "Three Point"s. No matter you have come for a short trip or long vacation, you have to visit this place. The Sunlight reflects on the Tiger Hill top and makes it marvelous to watch. The reflection changes its nature every single day and not a single day is the same!
Spent a great time at tiger hill....it's truly a view point to observe the sunrise and watch beauty of nature. The colours changes every moment while sunrise and that creates a eye catching moment. You can't miss any chance to see the beauty of nature at its peak. The first sun rays touch the kanchanjunga hills and shines bright whereas you observes the darkness around you. The hill top of the second largest mountain in world shines in that darkness and soon the darkness is faded away by the rays of sun coming right through the hills. Must visit and I can bet that you won't have words to explain the such beauty.
A perfect start for the day when going around Darjeeling. One can be unlucky though if the clouds tend to greet you rather than the rising Sun. However, if all goes as planned, you are in for the treat of your life. A sight you will never forget, ever. The number of people witnessing the sunrise would be close to infinite, hence be prepared for a shove here and a push there. Be early and find a spot for yourself!! Else, pushing tour way through is the only way possible in order to witness the miracle you have woken up so early for....!😊
We had to wake up around 4.30AM to watch the sunrise. When we reached Tiger Hill, there were hundred cars and quadrupled tourists stuck in the jam and climbing up the hill to see the sunrise. The climb was a little more than we expected for the time of the day. However we managed to reach the top and were shocked to see hundreds of people squeezing in a small space to watch the sunrise and the golden Kanchenjunga peak. The view was spectacular and never did I see such an amazing phenomenon. The peak was painted fiery orange and the vicinity saw spectrum of colors. Worth a visit and try to exit early to avoid rush
