Tiger hill is one of best tourist attractions in Darjeeling. 11 km from Darjeeling town tiger hill is the highest hill in that area that has an altitude of 8,500 ft (2,600 m). Watching the rising Sun is nothing special here, the special scene is watching the first Sun light on the Kangchenjunga from here. If sky is clear the its a view of a life time.
When the first sun light hits the snow covered white Kangchenjunga it becomes red and then as the Sun raises it turns to orange to gold and then finally white again. Its a play of about 15-20 minutes but the feeling can’t be explained in words. Somebody must watch it to believe it.
If you are lucky you can even witness the Sun rise at the great Mount Everest, that is 170 km( 107 mi) away from tiger hill.
