About Tiger Hill

76%
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.

"Early morning experience" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
If you want to go there then you have to awake very early morning. Also very far from main mall road. Sunrise view is important only. I just loved the stay and will surely go back to relive the experience.

The view of sunrise from Tiger hill is mesmerizing and breathtaking. But when you start from your hotel for this beautiful spot you will have to travel through rough roads and huge traffic.

"It is one of the highest peaks in the area" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Tiger Hill at Darjeeling offer a fascinating view Kanchenjunga Mountain -the third highest peak of the world. I cannot say what this place looks like in peak hours but I went to spend some time in peace there alone in the afternoon. Though I couldn't see sunrise but the view all around is breath-taking. Go there anytime, you will long to return back.

"Cloudy most of the time, worth a visit" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
This place is generally shrouded in cloud and the chances of seeing the actual sunrise, is thin as there is cloud all around. Once the sun rises though, the light on the mountain peaks, make the visit worthwhile.

"Must see spot in Darjeeling and very beautiful" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
We could see it from our resort (Rhodendron), around 9 o'clock morning it was in the sky like floating mountains in the cloud. A bit whitish and a bit golden color. The feeling was very beautiful. Whole Tiger hill mountains can be seen. But most of the time due to could, we could not see, it was visible for only few hours.

You need to reach the hill before 5 am to see the sunrise. Take camera with you. It will be very cold in the early morning so be covered. Tea vendors will be serving tea there.

The sunrise is spectacular, just breath-taking. Since our visit was in January, it was very cold. The cold winds almost froze our hands when we were clicking the views.
