Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Reviews
Beautiful place to visit. The views are exquisite. You can get snacks around. But due to a lot of popularity the place gets a bit hefty. They are preparing a glass view but by my time it wasn't ready
Well. This place is beautiful. I went in the afternoon and damn! Reminds me of a few places back home. Anyway! It's a beautiful spot. I just hope the construction there gets done with soon. But very very beautiful!
My first question is why fo we have Cigarette sellers everywhere on a public spot. Lets talk about view. It is really blissful and amazing. You should have a perfect timing to view the sunrise and weather condition too. Its overcrowded and there is no authority managing this space. Make sure to carry some woolen clothes while visiting here. 👍👍 I would definitely recommend people to visit here once.
The sunrise was an amazing view. But you have to have the perfect timing to reach there. I read loads of reviews and some said we've to leave too early like at 2 AM and some had other opinion. I'd say 3:30-4 AM is the perfect time to start the journey. Make sure to be there by 4:30 so that you can see the sun rise perfectly. The walk upto the sunrise spot is a little rocky so make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
The experience of that special morning view from this sunrise point has been engraved so deep in my mind.. that I can feel it for the rest of my life.. the cold breeze.. the golden peaks.. and the beautiful sky.. !!
