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
Jan 2021 • Couples
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.

This was a great place to go early in the morning to watch the sunrise on the mountain. Well worth the 3:30 wake up

Check before you visit

On chilly month with winds it take nerves to reach the place to watch the view from Tiger Hill. Unfortunately due to bad weather and clouds we couldn't see any thing. Taxi operator will take you from your room around 0430h, and you spend next 1h having bracing the cold. Mini market is active with tea coffee also available. Suggest you wear sufficient winter clothing mask, cap muffler etc and reach just 15mkn before sunrise timing..

Sunrise and it's reflection on kanchanjunga
Dec 2020 • Family
Important place of Gangtok Darjeeling trip from where we can view beautiful sunrise and golden reflection of the same on Kanchanjunga mountains.Drive and reach to this place on 28 dec 2020 at early morning around 4 o'clock can secure best place for a marvellous view and sad to see the pathetic- incomplete construction of observatory, no place to sit and view however managed with mobile tourch), spot was overcrowded with 1000s of public, clicked good pics of sunrise. Administration must pay attention at this place as public reaches there at minus temperatures too as we were at -1, which indicates how important this place is.

Place was being done up. Hyped as sunset point. No place to sit. The view was NOT worth the trip. The road though had good scenery

Beautiful sunrise
Nov 2020 • Family
The view is beautiful but the crowds are annoying.if you happen to visit this place at 5.30am in the morning and by around 5.45 to 6.15 you can experience the golden line which forms on the other end of mountain.If you're lucky and you have a clear sky, the view of the Kanchenjunga is stunning. Look far away and you can even see the Everest peak.

Pathetic Infrastructure, Unsafe
Nov 2020 • Family
This is an important place of Darjeeling tour from where we see beautiful sunrise and reflection of the same in Kanchanjunga mountain. We wake up at 3.30 AM, drive to this place in early morning and what we see is pathetic- incomplete construction ( from last few years) of observatory, no lights (expected to use mobile tourch), no guides, no control on public, you click any good pic and see scaffoldings are there. No stairs.
I am surprised, how this (the most important place of Darjeeling tour) is being administrated.
They know very well that tourists spend time and money, waking up at 3.30 AM and waiting at this place at 7deg C indicates how important it is.

the morning sunshine and the himalayas
Nov 2020
A must visit as we heard, woke up at 3.30 to visit there as our car arrived.( not all cars can go, local cars require police pass before hand and 50 per traveller token fee taken after visit). takes to reach about 40mins from the main area of darjeeling , its better to reach before hand to occupy a good place for viewing. the area is too crowded, so persons avoiding crowds due to covid 19, must stay back. the sunrise view is marvellous as are the montains on the first light. we came back by 6.30. the approach road is difficult and has to walk a certain distance from the parking.
