about tiger hill

The summit of Ghoom, Tiger Hill in Darjeeling is the highest point of this hill station. It's also famous for is magnificent view of the Mt Everest and Mt Kanchenjunga. The first shot of sunlight at dawn shading upon the twin peaks painting the snow clad mountains in pale orange, is something one just cant miss. It is perhaps the most splendid experience one can have, while in Darjeeling.  At an altitude of 2590 meters and 13 km away from the Darjeeling, Tiger Hill offers magnificent view of the mountains.

The place has earned worldwide fame for the breathtaking view of the sunrise over the "Kanchenjunga" and the great eastern Himalayan Mountains. The world's highest peak, Mount Everest, can also be viewed from here. The story behind the Tiger Hill goes accordingly. Each morning, muffler-wrapped tourists make up a procession towards the hill to see what was reckoned by many to be, at least from 1838 to 1849, the highest mountain in the world — Kangchendzonga. Then, in 1856, the Survey of India confirmed the suspicion that actually Nepal’s Sagarmatha, named Everest by the Brits, was it. If you are exceptionally lucky, you will see both the current and the former tallest mountains of the world from Tiger Hill.  The difference in their height is a mere 0.25 km. Kangchendzonga though, now relegated to being the third highest peak, is still called the most romantic mountain — an epithet one can understand only on seeing it. Countless poems and an eponymous movie by Satyajit Ray acknowledge this.

Tiger hill is the place which is popular for viewing the first golden ray of sun falling on kanchenjunga but we missed it bcoz it was raining that time. Traffic issues there & a noisy place.
