Tiger Hill, Darjeeling Reviews

  • 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.

  • Great experience that couldn't forget in my life. I visited this place along with my whole family in 2015. This is one of the top most tourist visited place in Darjeeling. This spot is located a little far from main town and of course someone has to reach over there before sunset and the other thing is there are hundreds of tourist normally observe the sun rise that's why we, so far I remember that started off at 3:00 am. The normal weather was very cool and someone need to travel here with warm cloths. There should be carry cameras, mobile cameras coz you will have a chance to take lots of pictures.

  • Entry: Free. Sunrise View Point. Minimum Duration: 2 hours. The No. 1 spot for any Darjeeling Tour Itinerary. It should be in your must visit list. You should reach early as there is huge traffic jam at the base of the hill. So you have to walk approx. 500 meters although you can reach nearby in off-season. Take adequate winter clothing covering your whole body including head, hands, legs. Till January 2018, there is no shed to stay indoor, observatory is under construction, so be prepare for the cold. Even your camera and phone battery can malfunction if your are keeping those in outside for long duration.

  • Really nice place. It was very crowded but it has certain feel to it and the view is quite nice from there. What I liked most about the place was the chilling cold breeze even in the month of May .The rising sun you get to see is quite similar to the ones you get to see at other places also, so novelty was missing .A new observatory is getting constructed there which would be helpful to lure more people at tiger hill and would be easier for the visitor s to get a glimpse of the rising sun.Overall it was good.

  • I cannot rate higher than 3 because I came I an odd season and could not view the sunrise. I visited in May when it is insanely cloudy and foggy all around. You may not see the Sun all day let alone sunrise. The best season apparently is January, February and March. It was cool and pleasant but due to low visibility at off seasons there is hardly any scenery to watch.
