A Brief About The Place

Tiger Hill lies at an altitude of 2590 meters and at a distance of 13 km away from Darjeeling. It is famous for the awestruck glimpses of sunrise one can see from the top and the peaks of Kanchenjunga are lit up before the sunlight is seen anywhere else in the city, which is something one should witness.

The whole area is covered with grassy foliage with sublime clouds in the background. The fresh morning air as one makes their way to the summit is a refreshing experience. You should start your journey from 3:30 a.m. to reach Tiger Hills by 4:15 a.m. This gets delayed in winter as the sun rises later.
