The road that leads to this famous Hill runs up a steep gradient through colourful forests of oak, magnolia and beautiful ferns. 11km from Darjeeling and at an elevation of 2590m, the summit of this hill is very special. A viewing tower provides an unparalleled 360° Himalayan panorama. The top of the tower is an incredible viewpoint, and is universally acclaimed as the best place to view the Kanchenjunga, especially at sunrise. One can also see over 200km distant Mount Everest from here. Even if, you do have to rise at 4 am and be driven by Jeep to Tiger Hill, the panorama is worth it.
