About Tiger Hill

69%
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.

"Mesmerizing and colour changing ranges" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Watching sunrise from Tiger Hill was a mesmerising experience. So beautiful and colours of nature could be seen changing. For watching the experience completely you will have to get down from your hotel at 4am. Reach Tiger Hill by 4:30 am as the sun start rising, you could watch the grand Kanchenjunga being visible vibrantly.

"Extremely beautiful place and environment" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Extremely beautiful environment, people gathering around to view the sunrise. One can feel the beauty of nature, very positive environment. Sunrays falling on the mountains of Kanchenjunga is another attractive view. One can get coffee at the top to reduce the effect of cold. There is also a building containing 2 floors for the better view of sunrise at very less charges.

"Awesome sunrise" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
This place is a must visit as the awesome view of the sunrise from here is mind boggling. Do visit the place in early morning hours. Easy ride can be taken on shared basis or cabs can be booked for the visit, its a visit for 1-2 hours.

"Limited tickets is the only issue" new review

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
You need to go early to ensure you get tickets. There are many ticket types and in limited number. So to get good ticket you must reach around 3 am. But there is no guarantee that you will see Kanchenjunga. It can be very cold in early morning.

It's very breathtaking to view the whole Kanchenjunga range during sunrise. It's simply superb I love it one can sip a hot coffee during the stay in chilling weather.

"Amazing to be here"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
We stayed here for around 3 hours and saw sunrise. It was amazing. Carry warm clothes and don't forget your camera. If you were lucky enough and no natural disaster, you will have a lifetime experience.
