Tiger hill, Darjeeling

Tiger Hill is famous for the panoramic views it offers of Mount Everest along with Kangchenjunga.
It is 11 km from the town of Darjeeling and can be reached either by jeep or by foot climbing up the incline to the summit.
Many people (both locals and tourists) gather at dawn to watch the first rays of the sun shoot ahead and shed light upon the twin peaks of Kangchenjunga painting it pink and then bathing it in a beautiful orange colour. From Tiger Hill, Mount Everest (8848m) is just visible, peeping out through two other peaks standing by its side. Makalu (8481m) looks higher than Mt. Everest, owing to the curve.
