Overview

Situated at an altitude of 2590 meters and a distance of 13 kilometres far from the Darjeeling, Tiger Hill is mostly famous for its splendid sights of sunrise from where you can see the peaks of heavenly Kanchenjunga illuminate before the sun is seen at lower elevations. It also provides a beautiful panoramic view of The Great Mount Everest.

The magnificent view of snow-capped mountains sitting amidst cotton clouds attracts tourists to Tiger Hill from Around the country. Interestingly, this is also the summit of Ghoom, which is known to be the highest railway station within the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The entry ticket to the Tiger Hill is Rs.50, however, there are different ticket rates at the Observatory Tower depending on the level. The ground level ticket rate is Rs. 20/- per person, the 1st floor is Rs. 30/- and the top floor which has comfortable seating with slightly better view is Rs. 40/-.

The starting time from Darjeeling is 3.30 AM to reach tiger hill by 4.15 AM The starting time becomes 4.15 AM in winters due to delayed sunrise time. The roads get blocked by a convoy of jeeps and cars during the best time of the season. To get up to the sunrise spot, it requires a short climb on foot from the parking spot. One can book a car or an Innova for INR 1200/ INR 1800 from a travel agency in the city or pay INR 200 per head.
