    A view of Kanchenjunga
    Went there early in the morning to see sunrise and kanchenjunga. Could not see any due to heavy mist. The climate was very cold and no visibility due to mist. Maybe the views will be better in summer

    Amazing Place
    Tiger Hill is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Darjeeling to witness the stunning sunrise over the Himalayas. The panoramic views, the play of colors during sunrise, and the overall experience of being surrounded by the world's highest peaks make it a memorable and iconic part of the Darjeeling experience. Just be prepared for the early morning wake-up call and the chilly temperatures, and you'll be rewarded with a sight that's truly awe-inspiring.

    Sunrise at its best!
    Awesome view during sunrise! It is reachable by car but the trick is to reach tiger hill by 4am to avoid walking to the point as it gets very crowded post that. We went there in November and was rewarded by the most beautiful sunrise!

    Everest and Kanchejunga view at the same time!!
    I went in off season. It was cloudy. No sunrise. Hence, no Kanchenjunga, or Everest view. Damn! But this is a must visit place, where you can see both the mountain peaks at the same time. The sunrise view makes them glow like gold. Its peaceful, close to nature and smooth road.

    Sunrise not to be missed
    Requires a token for the tourist company to take you there for sunrise viewing. Even then, there were hundreds of cars and may be a thousand people packed shoulder to shoulder in off-season! Got there almost 2 hours before sun rise to get the front row and stood shivering in the cold the whole time. It was all worth it once the sun came up. The main attraction is to see the sun's reflection on the Kangchenjunga mountain changing colors as it comes up. Took more than half hour for our car to leave the area and go back to town.

    Solo Tip
    Best spot for witnessing the rising sun above the 'Queen of Hills', casting it's golden rays on the snow capped peaks of the mighty Kanchenjunga mountain range. The place offers a complete panoramic view of the Kanchenjunga mountain range. It is open throughout the day, but most of the tourists prefer to visit this place early in the morning to witness the golden peaks. It is advised to visit here as early as possible (around 4:00 - 4:30 am) to reach the nearest point, to avoid long walks. It is also advised to carry warm clothes as the weather gets really cold early in the morning and the gushing winds make it impossible to withstand the cold, also there's no shelter at the top to protect from the winds. We carried all the layers of warm clothes still we needed to buy additional shawls.

We were taken up Tiger Hill as part of our India tour, stating off from the hotel in Darjeeling at 03.30 am. It was a long wait in the cold to see the sun rise. When it did happen we were lucky that it was very clear and the sun shining on the Himalayas was quite spectacular.
At that time in the morning we were some of the first to arrive and could choose our places in the stand area. By the time of the sunrise the place was very busy.
If you're coming by your own transport it's a good idea to park it along the exit road - the car parks are filled bumper to bumper and it must take a very long while getting away.

Wake up at 3-30 and wait for nearly 2 hours for sunrise and if it is Cloudy as it was when we visited you day is wasted. The
better option is to walk to the view point near Mahakal mandir
at about 9-00 and see the
Klanchanjunga absolutely
Marvellous

Blessed with clear weather, we were rewarded with an amazing visual display by the Sun, the Sky & the Mountain.
If you've come to watch the sunrise, you can't expect a better show anywhere else in this country, I think!
But while God's work is perfect, as usual, we mortals have miles to go before we come anywhere near perfection in respect of the infrastructure for this daily event.

It takes a very long time to disengage from the chaos in the parking area and leave the location once viewing is over. Parking must be structured and/or controlled to make entry & exit easier.
Private contractors make a killing, renting out chairs @ ₹50 (now) for this 60-75 minute show. And then everyone wants to stand up for a better view and chaos ensues. Surely, with a little more attention from the Brains Trust of the Tourism Department, this problem can be eased.
