Mesmerising

Heavenly experience, what can be more mesmerising than watching the sunrise at one side and watching its reflection on the Kanchenjunga mountains on the other side

Utter waste, heavily crowded with Tourist and will get stuck in Traffic.
Do not plan for a trip to Darjeeling, you will spend more time more in traffic. City is not clean and heavily crowded with Tourist. Government should plan for proper infrastructure to support tourism. People are wasting time in visiting the District.

Interesting place for sunrise. There are other points in the city also giving that similar view. Best time to reach is 5 am.

Sun rise-- Spectacular view
Oct. 2021
We reached the viewing point by 4.00 am. It was a clear day, the sun rise was @ 5.25 am. It was crowded and because we reached the high point quite early we had a great view of the sun rise.

The view from the top of this hill is superb but I feel there should be better arrangements to accommodate the huge crowd that accumulate there in the tourist season. The road from Darjeeling to Tiger hill is full of potholes, there are not enough lights on the way to the top once you leave the car at the parking lot and walk up quite a bit. Also a gallery like structure is needed to accommodate the crowd and make everyone get a view of the range

Capturing the unexpected beauty
Jan. 2021 • Friends
We went to the Tiger hill much before the dawn with the hopes of catching the glimpse of the mighty Kanchenjunga. But to our surprise we found that the best spots were already taken and it was a hefty crowd , we saw people shaking in that freezing cold and covering their faces and mouths with their hands more to keep them warm and not for the lurking fear of the dying second wave of Coronavirus. But I firmly believe that in the mountains luck plays a major role in sighting anything with snow. And the snow gods weren't happy at us for some reason and a thick layer of cloud came over and covered the entire sky and there went our hopes of sighting Kanchenjunga.
But you know as they say, hope is what keeps us alive and we saw that in the crowd there as noone moved from their position still hoping that they can see the peak soon. Unable to get a good spot we started looking around the area and we noticed that we can see the entire 360 degrees around us and suddenly I saw the first rays of light touching the forests at an angle where no one was looking. It was a serene sight and as a reflex my hands straightway went for the camera to capture this beautiful landscape where the eroded soil gave an impression of a waterfall moving like a reptile from the forest.
We were happy that we got something out there and I will always remember to look around for life can give you gifts from unexpected sources.
" Some other day " I murmured to Mt. Kanchenjunga and left.

Beautiful view

Tiger Hill is famous for its sunrise and kanchenjunga view. It is very cold at the top. One of the must go places in Darjeeling. Best known for its trekking routes and panoramic views of Mt. Everest and kanchenjunga.

breathtaking view

An almost 1 km uphill walk - BUT worth the effort. Ensure you leave early & reach atleast 30 mins before sunrise to capture the changing colours of the skyline

Not worth wasting your precious time

We heard about tiger hill from everyone we told about our Darjeeling visit. We also heard that the sunrise is very famous there and people generally leave for tiger hill in early hours of the morning (4 am) to view the sunrise.

We decided against going so early and thought of going around 11 am.aftee breakfast.

Took a cab opposite keventers, who charged us 1500 rs for tiger hill and so we reached after 45 mins of travel.

Believe me,the first thought which crossed our mind was ,"this is tiger hill for which people disrupt there sleep and start at 4 am in the morning". I have not seen a place worst than that place. There is construction work going on everywhere and no place to.stsnd or sit or enjoy the view.

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE, PLEASE AVOID GOING.
