About Tiger Hill

63%
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.

"Very beautiful place though we missed sun rise" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Today
It is about half hour journey from Darjeeling, make sure that you leave hotel by 4 am otherwise will miss sun rise. You have to take necessary things like snacks, water with you otherwise you will get nothing on the way but make sure you leave hotel by 4 am. You can visit Ghoom Monastery and Batasia Loop in your returning from Tiger Hill, both are very beautiful place to visit, children will like these place most.

"Disappointing if cloudy" new review

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
One drives up to this hill to get a splendid view of the Himalayas and particularly the Kanchenjunga. If cloudy then one doesn't see anything and getting up at 4 am to drive up this mountainside and face the jostling crowd can be very disappointing.

"A memorable sunrise" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
A short drive from Darjeeling, this place gives you crystal clear view of the Kanchenjunga at dawn. Do watch the day break, if it is not cloudy. In case the weather plays spoil sport, do not go ahead with your visit.

Need good weather for view for sunrise otherwise all your efforts will go in vain. You have to wake up whole night, really not worth watching, you can opt for better option.

"A must visit place" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
A heritage and must visit place of Darjeeling, you can experience the Sunrise from the top point of Darjeeling. Please carry your warm dresses with you because it's too cold than the city, there is small fee to access the point from where you can see the rising sun and Kanchenjunga at the same time.

"Very famous point" new review

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Due to cloudy whether we were not able to see sunrise. The point is very crowded, can carry with us good camera to click sunrise photos which is the only attraction of Tiger Hill. Over all the visit is worth and is the clouds are clear we might have enjoyed much better.

"Most beautiful view of Kanchenjunga" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Most beautiful place I have ever visited. Most beautiful view of Kanchenjunga is visible from here. We have to leave by 3:30 or 4:00 am from our hotel so that we can see the mountain as soon as the sun rises. Only disadvantage is a building where tourists gather and there is different fee for each floor. Only difference between these floors is the seating arrangement but it is overcrowded. Best way to view the mountain is from the open space if it is not too cold.

"Clearly see the sunrise"

  • Posted 1 month ago
I find myself very lucky that I saw sunrise very clearly. Although the weather was not very clear but on that spot every thing was clear and I saw the sun rise for the first time in my life.
