Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Reviews

  • Tiger Hill is a famous tourist spot in Darjeeling. It's famous for the view of sunrise in the Himalayas. Here you should reach early in the morning before the sunrise. The place is unorganized there is no building or any toilet. Local people sell tea or coffee. If you get late you miss the spectacular view and get stuck in jam as well. So leave early beat the rush and enjoy the view is good experience.

  • Its beautiful. From darkness to light, its a fascination to watch nature in action. There are vendors selling mufflers, gloves, jackets, coffee and what not to save you from the early morning cold. Reach here early if you want to be near the railings for a better look at the sunrise. Else the crowd is huge and you will have to tip toe to get a view of the sun.

  • Observatory is under construction... Went there by 4:15AM on Oct 14, 2018... found a good location to enjoy Sun rise... We were lucky on that day to get a great view without snow impacting.. that moment when Kanchenjunga peak glows when Sun rises is a lifetime experience... Be prepared for the cold...

  • A popular spot to see the first rays of sun on the Himalayas. So popular it is a journey to get there in the traffic and back. We were fortunate to see the mountains, but they aren't always in view. Can be quite cold so rug up as you are at altitude

  • One of the best places to visit during sunrise. One should be lucky enough to get a glimpse of Kanchenjunga, this place should be on top of must see list when one visits Darjeeling. Locals sell coffee here in the morning and there is no proper place to dispose used paper cups. Hope the place is maintained clean and preserved for our future
