About Tiger Hill

68%
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.

If you are visiting darjeeling then must go to Tiger Hill. You will have to leave early from darjeeling and if you are lucky, you will be able to see awesome sunrise.

"Clearly see the sunrise" new review

I find myself very lucky that I saw sunrise very clearly. Although the weather was not very clear but on that spot every thing was clear and I saw the sun rise for the first time in my life.

"A nice place to visit"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It was nice to visit the place but very sorry to share that we reached after the sunrise and we had seen people and people only everywhere and felt happy to understand the eagerness of all people to the natural sight. I was surprised to see a person aged more that 85 yrs old also was walking slowly to become a part of sunrise viewers. It was good time spent there at the top where tea and others are being provided in the early morning.

"Mesmerizing and colour changing ranges"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months 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"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months 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.

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.
