Too many people for one sunrise. Saw the rising sun with 2000 people. Can be managed better by the state government.

Quite great untisipation for sunrise. At first glimpse of sunrise place becomes noise and and a bit quaotic. A lot of movement. I guess what I'm trying to say if one once to watch sunrise in piece chose another place.

Fabulous view of the sunrise on Kanchenjunga Mountain from Tiger Hill. Very early start and plenty of transports going in that direction. If you find yourself in Darjeeling it's worth the early wake up to see this spectacular event. Visited in Oct 2012.

We had to leave at 4 am to travel to Tiger Hill to witness the sunrise. Well worth the sacrifice of sleep for the amazing atmosphere with thousands of visitors converging on one hill. The drive to Tiger Hill is awesome. A Must see trip.

Depends on how far you get parking from the Tiger Hill viewing point. The climb is quite steep
