It's very nice to see the sunrise from Tiger Hill unless the weather is clean there is a lot of walking that needs to be done because cars can't drop you till the main point of the site

Excellent place to view sunrise. People start by 4 am to reach this place on time to see the sun rise. If weather permits, we can see sunrise and a look at mount Kanchenjunga , world’s 3 rd largest peak. Well If you are unlucky...More

Though we reached by 4.30 AM to watch the sunrise on Kanchanjunga Mountains, the clouds played its role and could not see the sunrise. It was advised by the local guide, September and October will be too good for watching sunrise from Tiger Hills.

Best place in the town where you get to see the beautiful sunrise and the Mountain ranges from a very close distance. Every visitor in Darjeeling does visit this place.

You should be lucky enough to get glipmse of kanchanjunga. Sky has to be totally clean with no fog for any view. We reached round 4:30am, just to find lots and lots of crowd, no hill views and lot of walking because of traffic jam...More

Go early and you get best view of Kanchenjanga Sunrise!!. You will be disturbed by locals selling goodies and teas. That you have to ignore it. Make sure you go early and take a camera. Best profile pics can be taken there.

I would suggest spend the max time in Sikkim, about 2 days in Darjeeling should suffice.

Taking baby stroller is tiresome job as you need to walk and climb around 500 m and that too in early morning i.e. something around at 4:00 hrs. So the decision lies on you.

Our visit was just for the sunrise (18 Oct 2017). I can't imagine any reason to go another time. To see the sky start to lighten, glowing rays hitting the Himalayas over the misty blue valleys was magic and what it's all... More
