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.

  • Excellent place in Darjeeling to view the sunrise . Partly crowded during the tourist season. The best time to visit is October / April-May. A beautiful gallery to see the sunrise is being constructed by the Tourism Department. However , the pollution rate is in it's peak here and the paper cups lying here and there is a common sight . In order to take the vehicle till top one needs to pay a certain amount of fee. This place doesn't has a parking facility so the vehicles has to be parked on the road itself.so in case of jam you may have to walk a bit till the top. Few local vendors can be seen selling tea , coffee but the prices are comparatively higher.
  • Since It's famous for Early morning visit place; You have to get up early at 4 in the morning, It is 11 km from the town of Darjeeling and can be reached by jeep. When I was there, I was surrounded by hundreds of travellers like me. People were clapping and cheering when we had the first moment of the sunrise. Watching the rising Sun with changing colors of mount Kanchenjunga from this point is a life; You guys can see in my photo section below. It was such a great experience! KEEP IN MIND: Keep extra warm clothes with you as temperature is already downed. The jeep driver gives you deadline when to be back. Take care of your personal belongings. ENJOY!
  • A very beautiful place and if you can time it right you can also witness the moonrise in the winter time.
