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.

"Golden Morning of Kanchenjunga" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Today
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 (ash) 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 kanchenjunga 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. Don't forget to take your gloves and winter clothes, at 4 in the morning it's very chilly on the top.

  • Posted 4 weeks ago
From here you can see the Kanchenjunga hill (k2) during the sunrise. When the sun ray strikes on that hill that whole area will be as if made of gold and charm as diamond that are the awesome moment during the sight. At tiger hill a garden is builded and on that garden, a movie song's was shooted.

"Nice to see sun-rise"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Very good to see the sun rise at this Tiger hill in the morning. But the problem is only the exact view of this as the shed made cannot occupy 100 or more persons. The government should made this place like 100's of people can see the sun rise at a time.

"Must visit"

Should go in the morning, however it is not necessary that you will find the sunrise but the atmosphere is good there. You have to be ready around 5 am in the morning, it is difficult but worth watching.

"Most awesome view"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Getting up very early in the morning to see this sunrise is worth. Though we had gone there at 3. 30 a.m, we found that the best seats were already taken. Lots of traffic on the road at this time also and many people go there to watch the sunrise. The view of Kanchenjunga from here is beautiful.

"Must visit in your lifetime"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Watching sunrise at Tiger Hill is the main highlight of Darjeeling trip, but you have to book the cab in one day advance. If you do not want to pay extra money then book the cab directly from taxi stand not by hotel. You have to start at 4:30 am in the morning. Do not forget to gear warm cloths with gloves and scarf. Watching sunrise at Tiger Hill is breathtaking. While coming back from Tiger Hill do not forget to stop at Ghoom Monastery and Batasia Loop.

"Best place in Darjeeling"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I with my wife visited in a chilly morning of November last. We were the only one who reached there on a motorcycle. A Darjeeling native told me that Kanchenjunga view from Tiger Hill is printed on back of 100 Rs note and he was right you can match the image peak- by- peak.

We were late by some 30 minutes and missed initial phase of sunrise. We started at 4 AM but took a wrong road and wasted some time in dark. If you are visiting alone, especially on bike take either thorough knowledge of route or reach at taxi stand and follow any taxi in morning at 4 AM. Watching sunset on the right hand side and awesome reflection of sunlight on the Kanchenjunga peak on the left side is etched on my memory for forever.

Enjoyed a couple of coffees there too.

We visited this place in Darjeeling which nearly 2500 mtr above sea height. We visited at around 4:30 am in morning and seen sun rise which is awesome. From Darjeeling you have to book four wheeler. Don't forget to take your selfie stick to click memorable selfies.
