About Tiger Hill

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.

Sunrise from Tiger Hill is very attractive. If you reach there once, you won't feel like leaving the place. Tea and snacks are also available there.

You should visit the Tiger Hills during Sunrise and a romantic pleasant morning. Not recommended during winters, as Darjeeling is very cold during that of year, November through February.

"The beautiful sunrise, freezing cold" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
We visited in November, it was freezing cold and there we were at tiger hill around 4.30 am waiting for the sun to rise. It was already crowded. The women selling coffee were called lifesavers. Sunrise was beautiful. If you can place yourself properly, you can see the sunrise on your right and the rays reflecting Kanchenjunga on your left. During sunset, suddenly it became very cloudy and hence we could not view the mountain.

Excellent area, if you go there then u can't imagine that you stay India or outside India. At the time of sunrise you will be forget all things. The best point of the sightseeing in Darjeeling.

"Nice to enjoy" new review

  • 2.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
We enjoyed a lot. It is paisa vasool, we had to wake up early to see the sunrise. It was memorable experience for my life. We hook up a tent, we played cricket and of course enjoyed the sunrise. So I request once you should go to Darjeeling.

"You cannot expect a feel good experience here" new review

  • 2.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
You cannot expect a feel good experience here. You go here at sunrise.There will be a good crowd and that makes it difficult a place to view the sunrise. I found nothing so interesting or surprising with the sunrise. It's about an hour's journey from the heart of Darjeeling if the roads are free. Chances of a view are also shadowed by high chances of a cloudy weather.
