Tiger Hill is famous for spectacular sunrise view over the Himalayas. Leveling out at 8,500 ft (2,600 m), Tiger Hill is the highest hill in the immediate surroundings.
It is 11 km from the town of Darjeeling.
Panorama of the Kangchenjunga massif from Darjeeling's Tiger Hill. 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 (29,002') is just visible, peeping out through two other peaks standing by its side. Makalu (27,799') looks higher than Mt. Everest, owing to the curve in the horizon, as it is several miles closer than Everest. The distance in straight line from Tiger Hill to Everest is 107 miles.

what an amazing view to be presented with as the sun rises over the mountains. the layers of silhouetted mountains provide a great foundation on which to present this sky with its amazing layers of colour and beautifully textured clouds. the rising sun just evident above the horizon is superbly placed. a wonderful composition full of atmosphere.
have a good day,
