We started at 4:30 a.m and reached by 5:15 a.m , there are two spots for voewing Sunrise, one around a km before the main spot. I feel both points are equally good to see sunrise. Its a usual sunrise as we have seen at other place unless it is a Good Sunny day. In a good Sunny day one can witness Kanchenjunga peaks which is a feast to the eyes. That is quite rare although.

it is good place to see kanchanjunga hill in early morning (if you are lucky). Better to take extra things to cover yourself and avoid of chilling winds there in the morning for sunrise.

This place is not for kids at all. To get a good view, you have to reach there at least one hour before Sunrise and waiting in such a cold place is not less than torture for kids and young children.

The view of sunrise and snow mountain depends on weather on that particular day. If the weather is cloudy, than your hardship will go in vain. Check your horoscope or weather conditions before going there.

If you are lucky, the views of the sunrise and the appearance of snow mountains from the site are mesmerizing and a treat for eyes.

This is the best spot to visit if you are in Darjeeling.
You need to get up quite early and reach there before 4.45-5. Otherwise you might need to walk to the hill as there would be lot of cars already blocking the way.
You might also complain about the lot of people selling stuff there in the early morning and lack of facilities.

But when the moment comes, all these things fades. Its pure joy to view the sun and its first rays when its very mild. You enjoy the natural beauty like no other. Obviously if you are unlucky then there might be clouds :-(.
We could see the sunrise but we could not view the Kanchanzunga due to the clouds, but hey no complains.

We had risen at 4.30 to get to Tiger Hill in good time. When we arrived, still in the dark, already lots of people were there, having got there extra early to get the best viewing spaces. People kept arriving, and many climbed up onto the unfinished hotel structure to get better views. It was freezing cold and we had nearly 1.5 hours to wait till sunrise. Ladies were walking around with thermos flasks selling small cups of milky, sweet coffee. You heard them calling out coffee, coffee, coffee, coffeeeee! It was a very hazy morning, and at one point we realised that this sunrise was just not going to happen, so we made a quick exit, beating the crowds and passing numerous parked cars along the way down. We counted ourselves lucky to have got off in time. I am sure it would all have been worth it, had it been a clearer day. We did not allow ourselves to be too disappointed not having seen the sunrise but stopped off and had a lovely breakfast on our way back.
