One of the recommended activities to do in Darjeeling as per the guidebooks was to watch the sunrise at the Tiger Hill (this is different from the Tiger Hill in Drass), and so we decided to give it a shot. At the right time and spot, one can see the sun rising from the mountains on one side, following by a panoramic view of the Kanchenjunga in the morning light.

The sun rises earlier in the eastern parts and to us it meant waking up at 3:00 am and getting ready in chilling cold, since the driver was coming to pick us up at 3:30 am. Apart from the routine of the sun, going early also means one will get a chance to park the vehicle closer to the summit and get a good place on the watching platform.
