Tiger Hill - a panoramic view of Mt. Everest and Mt. Kangchenjunga together.

Tiger Hill is situated 11 KM away from Darjeeling Town and it's highest railway station of Darjeeling Himalayan toy train. We reached Tiger Hill early morning around 4:00 because we plan to see morning views from Tiger hill , very fascinating view when the sun rays falls upon Mt. Kanchendzonga. Great landscape view!!

Beauty at its best

The most exciting viewpoint of Darjeeling to view Kanchenjunga at it's best..You need to get up at around 3am to reach over there by sharp 4am to relish the complete gradual process of sunrise thoroughly from the point..The car parking and the long stretched stiff way to reach the view point is a bit tiresome and not good for 60 up members in your family..But once you reach there, it's worth the wait..The temperature is extremely cold out there since it's approx 8465 ft. Once the sun rises from right behind of a peak in east and the rays reflect on the peaks of Kanchenjunga in the west, the whole scenario resembles heaven..Even though the gallery that's been made to view the sunrise isn't worth containing even a 100 people altogether, since it's under construction by the Govt. it can be expected in the coming days that it will eventually expand..A beautiful write up is out there on Darjeeling and Kanchenjunga along the same line..http://bongyatra.com/off-to-the-land-of-amazing-views-tea-and-kanchenjunga-plan-your-next-trip-to-darjeeling

Visit in the morning

The sight seeing was good but the weather was cloudy as a we should not get a view of Kanchenjunga peak fro tiger hill perhaps the bad weather massacred our plan plus the timing of our visit was not right we should have visited at 4am in the morning

Very nice place

This place is a very good sight seeing place. It is worth seeing this. When the sun rises we were very delightful to watch it . Amazing one with the colours...Still some more arrangements can be made here to stand and view this

Golden Morning of Kanchenjunga

If visited in tourist season i.e. Sep-Oct and April May, one can see golden peaks Kanchenjunga even from Chowrasta, but how the peak turns golden from white (aish) can be viewed only from Tiger Hills. For all the nature lovers who packed their bags just to explore more of North Bengal Tiger Hill is a must visit destination. To explore the panoramic view of rising sun at Tiger Hills, you have to spoil your dear early morning sleep. Cabs/taxis are available on either share rental or private rental basis. It will take around 25-30 minutes to reach the peak and then, just wait for the sun-rise. A picture which comes to existence when the first ray of sun strikes the peaks of kanchujanga and the clouds beneath it turns golden, is mesmerizing. Though the view may last for few minutes, but it is worth of all efforts.Tea/Coffee are available at the hill itself (at double price), but it is needed to keep you warm and enjoy the scene. Dont forget to take your gloves and winter clothes, at 4 in the morning its very chilly on the top.
