Beauty you can only experience, can't really imagine reading reviews or even watching photographs. Covered and hidden behind mist for most days, have to be lucky to see it from Darjeeling.

Excellent mountain range. Must watch at the time of sunrise when slowly the sunlight starts falling in the mountain range. If you are staying in West Bengal Tourism Lodge, then from the lodge itself you can visit the sunrise falling in the mountain.

If u visit Darjeeling during summer u will be Able to see Kanchenjunga from various places of Darjeeling. During winter due to fog the visibility is too low so u won't get to see any glimpse of Kanchenjunga.

View of kanchanjangha is best observed from ghoom. Colour changes with sun dawn and sun set. Must go to Tiger hill for spectacular sun rise.

Great experience to see the whole range on the morning of 3rd day of the Darjeeling tour on 2nd week of october 2016. First 2 days were washed off due to rain and fog. The main attraction of Darjeeling.

I was told by hotel to wake up early in the morning at about 3 AM. I was ready and we reached at the view point at about 4:30 AM. When the first light of the sun fell to the peak it was just a golden mountain.

Rose at 4am to watch the sun rise over Sikkim, Nepal and Bhutan from Tiger mountain in Darjeeling. A truely memorable experience including a ten minute glimpse of Kanchenjunga Mountain. Being January they're was a sharp frost but only a few thousand tourists. The 5,000 seater observatory should be fun when finished.

Great experience to view this mountain covered with snow. We saw this mountain from pelling, gangtok, Namchi. Best view was from Temi tea garden and from Pelling Helipad...

It was an experience that cant be expressed in words. It does something to you. Looks beautiful from tashi view point, gangtok but the view from tiger hills, Darjeeling is breathtaking.

A beautiful site to behold especially early in the morning during sunrise when the top has a golden glow.
