About Tiger Hill

59%
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 Tiger Hill during sunrise is a heavenly experience" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
We were out early in the morning so that we can see the sunrise, thankfully it had less fogs on that day and when the sun slowly rises it seems like someone is spreading a gold throughout the white mountain. Then we visited the world heritage site and the highest station Ghoom, one of the memorable journeys.

"Excellent view at the sunrise"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
That was our first day to see the Tiger Hill Point. Our travel agent informed us to start by 4 am sharp. We were very curious about Tiger Hill. When we reached there we found that when the sun rises the climate is changing and left side we are viewing Kanchenjunga mountain which is the beautiful scene I will never forget.

"Very beautiful place though we missed sun rise"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
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"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 1 month 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.
