Tiger Hill, Darjeeling

3.7
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. Use our Darjeeling online holiday maker to add Tiger Hill and other attractions to your Darjeeling vacation plans.

  • A must watch place for the tourist of DARJEELING. that's the place where anyone can see sunrise and warmth with the first ray of sun with an extraordinary feeling with mountain winds. Local cab could go there, near about they charge 1000-1500 rupees for that tour. Government made a gallery to see the sunrise. All the tourist should find the right timing of sunrise and they have to arrive their before the sunrise. Almost 30 minutes car distance from the station GHUM
  • Amazing Experience :) Amazing view of sunrise and Kanchenjunga mountain - Have to start from Hotel at 4:30 am as it takes 30- 40 minutes to reach - Freezing Cold: Wear warm clothes, gloves, shoes, socks, cap - Better to reach early as in this way you will get a good place to stand and experience the mesmerizing view - Locals will serve tea/coffee - Lots of people come here on daily basis - Taxi: Book cab 1 day in advance from mall road. It will cost 800-1000 Rs - Prefer not to take kids below 2 years and elderly people - 10 Rs/person will be charged on entry
  • One of the best place to see Mt. Kanchenjunga, if you are lucky (weather is not foggy) you might see the Mt. Everest. Make sure that reach Tiger hills early as possible and take appropriate Place/Position to see the whole range.
  • Amazing experience. Sun rise happened at 6am on April 1st, 2018. We we're waiting eagerly for the colors to change. The first Ray's of sun falling on kanchanjunga is amazing. The kanchanjunga turns golden in color. It will be chilling. The fingers get so cold, you can't even click photos on the mobile. But, amazing. People will be crowded to experience the sunrise.
  • This is heaven. Good for pik nik. Camping. Good views. Good for sun rise scene. And many wonderful things.
