5 out of 94 attractions in Darjeeling
One of the most important attractions in West Bengal, this is around 12 kilometres from Darjeeling and is a point 2555 metres above sea level. The Tiger Hill is famous for the rare views at dawn. The only condition if you want to enjoy this enthralling experience is that you have to be awake and ready by 4AM in the morning. You go straight to the Tiger Hill before the sun comes out and take the last views of the snow capped Kanchenjunga Peak. As soon as the sun comes out, the color of the sbow turns absolutely red and a little later Orange and then turns to Golden which again cpmes back to white when the sun is completely up. This natural show of lights is extra ordinary and is a visual treat. Starting your day to something like this is complete bliss. You can come to this place at anytime of the year except for monsoons and deep winters as the climate is extremely uncomfortable at this time.

Perched 1,100ft higher than Ghum, the Tiger Hill is popular for the majestic view it provides of the valley. Along with Darjeeling, Tiger Hill also offers a view of Kanchenjunga peak and, on a clear day, even Mount Everest. But such a clear sky is rare in Ghum as it is an abode of clouds, and usually the cotton mist takes over the town and areas around it leaving thousands who come here disappointed.

We started our sojourn by getting up early to see the sunrise at Tiger Hill.

3. Tiger Hill, DarjelingThe first ray of the Sun is said to bathe the twin peaks a shade of pink and then turns into a bright shade of orange. It is best enjoyed with a steaming cup of Darjeling tea in hand.

Despite it's popularity, an eyeful of sunrise at Tiger Hill remains one of the most popular things to do in Darjeeling. Soak up the mountain sun, amidst the emerald horizon of tea meadows. The most mesmerizing burst of colours that light up the whole sky is one of the most spectacular things you can witness. You'll be enveloped with a blanket of serenity, something that can only be felt in the arms of nature.

This place is famous for its Panoramic view of Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga. During sun rise, snowy mountains of Everest and Kanchenjunga become golden. Awesome place to visit in Darjeeling. Must see

Tiger hill is the highest point in Darjeeling. The most amazing part of this place is the sunrise view of the Kanchenjunga and the snow peaks of the Himalayas. I had witnessed the Mount Everest from here as it was a clear day.

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 flavored 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. 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.

Early to bed and early to rise pays handsomely at Tiger Hill. A visit to Tiger Hill means an early start to the morning to witness the hot burning ball of fire rise above the Kanchenjunga and bathe the mountain in luminous dawn colours. Tiger Hill, though big enough space, fills up pretty soon as no one visiting Darjeeling would want to miss such a splendid sight. Appreciate the splendor of the beautiful sun rise over Kanchenjunga and feel the wonderfully warm rays of the first light at Tiger Hill.
