From my hotel, I walked towards Observatory Hill through the Mall. After reaching, I stood there, with my keen eyes searching for the light on Mt. Kanchenjunga within the dark sky. It was very cold. I have always experienced a clear sky during this season. As the sun rises, the first light on the peak of Mt. Kanchenjunga gave an understanding of actual realistic colors. The color gradually started to glow with changing position of the sun.
It is said that best view of the sunrise over Mt. Kanchenjunga in Darjeeling is from Tiger Hill. I won't say it is bad, but since I have experienced the view several times from Tiger Hill, so this time, I thought of going around by foot and see the sunrise from Observatory Hill, behind Darjeeling Mall.
Tips: While watching the sunrise, you will be accompanied by many local walkers working out in the cold morning.
