Tiger Hill, Darjeeling
(3.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
At Tiger Hill, experience panoramic views of some of the highest peaks in the Himalayas. You can reach the summit either by foot 11 km (6.8 mi) from the town of Darjeeling, or by jeep. With a straight line distance of 172 km (107 mi), you can actually see the world's rooftop--Mount Everest--from this site, even though the fifth-highest peak, Makalu, appears higher here because of the curvature of the Earth. Observe the vast mountainous landscape around you and the rivers which meander to the south. Visit the wildlife sanctuary situated close to the summit. Remember to bring your hiking boots and warm clothing for this venture.

  • Excellent place to visit once you're in Darjeeling. It provides an excellent view during sunrise. Sunrise + Snow capped mountains provides an amazing experience. Only thing you need to remember is to ...  more »
  • Place is full of chaos... it's under renovation.. avoid going there.. the sunrise view of kanchanjunga can be seen from any damn place in Darjeeling 
  • I have visited Tiger Hill 5 times and our recent visit was the best ever. We were able to see all the peaks including Mt Everest. This location is the best viewing position as you can see the sun rise...  more »

  • Tiger Hill Sunrise Observatory: Darjeeling : Wonderful place! Nice view of sun rise !! Really cold, our car got stucked while returning (Bolero) temperate might be blow 0C. But truly confessing the satisfaction was not as per expectation. One of the reasons is it's overcrowded and mismanaged partially. The washroom is not at all hygienic and the food facilities are also poor. There are three floors having different category of tickets, higher the floor, high the range. I am not concern about the cost involved as quite reasonable they are but once you are in the cabin there is nobody from the administration / operational managers to advice you or to guide you or to control the crown in. I feel the situation can be managed in a better way. Let’s hope Govt of WB/ GTA will take this issue on priority!!!
  • Tiger Hill (2,590 m) is located near Darjeeling (11 km from the town of Darjeeling), West Bengal. It is famous for the panoramic view of Mount Everest and Mt. Kangchenjunga together. Sunrise from this place is also non forgettable. There is a watch tower, can go there with nominal price.
  • While I have been to Tiger Hill many times to experience the sunrise, I have also been there several times during the day and enjoyed as much. Tiger Hill is located 11km (6.8 miles) from Darjeeling town and above Ghoom. It's the highest point in Darjeeling hills at an altitude of 8482 feet (or 2590 meters). The best season to see the dazzling snow covered peaks as the sun rises is between Mid October to December. March to April is also a good time.
  • Oberrated Only scenic beauty is good sunrise is not main attractiom
  • The place gives a magnificient view of kanchenjunga. Round the year people visit the place to get a glimpse of the sunrise, on a clear day if one is lucky u can even see everest. Visited d place in december n endured the morning chill to see the sunrise, totally worth it.
