The most over-rated place that you can get to in the entire Darjeeling. It’s a hype created by the local tourist bodies. Firstly the place has no facilities, none at all. You need to get there early in the morning say around 4.30 to catch...More

Good place to visit during day time. Not sure about early morning visit here. Heard that this place is too crowded & freezing cold during that time. So we preferred to visit this place by 10-11 AM. It was a wise decision. No crowd at...More

Spectacular spot for sunrise. Definitely crowded, so our taxi couldn't go very far up the hill. That meant we did a fair amount of hiking to get to the top of Tiger Hill. We were lucky to have a very clear day, so the views...More

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.
