About Tiger Hill

62%
voted as clean

Tiger Hill is the best point in Darjeeling for watching sunrise. Located at a height of 7,407 feet above sea level, the hilly trails through the mountains lead to the hill top. On a clear day, the entire Himalayan range can be seen. It is at a distance of 11 km from the main city of Darjeeling.

Sunrise tours to Tiger Hill are arranged by hotels. Normally, the pickup time from the hotel is around 4 am. It is better to reach a little early in order to secure a place. There are tea stalls selling flavoured Darjeeling tea along with snacks. There are also shops from where one can pick up souvenirs like hand crafted items or picture post cards of Kanchenjunga and Darjeeling.

"View of a lifetime" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Reaching the Tiger Hill early morning before sunrise needs a lot of determination, but once you reach there, you will immediately understand that it was worth. The view of first Sunrays falling on Mt. Kanchenzunga was once a lifetime view. The golden peaks, that lasted for a few minutes, were every photographer's delight. You will soon be craving for some hot tea, and the problem is solved. The locals selling delicious Darjeeling tea to you at the spot. I am having a lots of those pics that inspire me of having another trip to some mountains soon.

"Waking up to view sunrise" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I have never been as excited for a sunrise as I was for witnessing sunrise at Tiger Hill in Darjeeling. When you stay at Darjeeling, you wake up early around 3:30 am for a drive to Tiger Hills to catch the sunrise at Kanchenjunga. When you do make it, you're faced with a cold morning and the moment of sunrise stays with you for a long time. Charge your batteries because you will be clicking a lot of pictures. The earlier you reach the better as people try to outdo others by reaching really early to get a vantage point.

The place is a must visit in Darjeeling. The snowclad mountains are like a silver lining in the heavenly sky, it is like the gateway of God's on earth. Even the Everest is visible from here.

  • 6.5/7

Tiger Hill is a must visit place. We went there during sunrise. Left hotel by 5 and reached there before sunrise. Even though there was lot of fog, the wait was worth. Want to visit this place again with family.

"The Heaven experience" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
First of all it was a sleeping Buddha view marvellous and we have to take so much time here, because it is a worthy place. We have a really nice experience. The early morning (8:AM) was suitable timing for visit. Wear light weight shoe with comfortableness. Socks must be in hand and also the leg.

"Queen of Hills"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
You just can't get enough of this place. The sunrise point and you can hike during the daytime takes around 50 - 55 min from Jore Bunglow. You can see almost all of Darjeeling town from up here. And if the day is sunny you will get to see the full range of the majestic Kanchenjunga.

We have got a very beautiful view in Tiger Hill. You must purchase the bigger amount ticket for fantastic view of sunrise and Kanchenjunga. You will get a clear view from the top floor of the tower. You have to purchase the corresponding ticket.

"Beautiful place to view the sunrise very clearly"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The place Tiger Hill is the place that we can see the sunrise very clearly. More than 7000 ft in the hill area early in the morning with nice weather. There is a wonderful temple and the hotel management arrange for the taxi also. Lots of people come from different place to see the sunrise and the beauty of hills early 430 am. Moving from the hotel and feeling very cold but after watching the sunrise the mind gets fresh. If going to Darjeeling doesn't go for Tiger Hill it is bad luck. It's a beautiful place that people get happiness while coming and its 15 km from Darjeeling.
