An early morning trip to see the sun rise from Tiger Hill is a must for all visitors. There is nothing to match the spectacle of rapidly changing colours over the colossal Kanchanjunga range of snow-capped peaks as the light of the rising sun touches them. While the entire of Tiger Hill now comes under a Conservancy, it offers lush meadows most suitable for picnics. No fees of any kind are charged.
Tiger Hill is the highest point in the town. It is situated over Ghoom and access to the same is through taxi or bus from the town till Ghoom. Visitors can either continue on taxi from Ghoom to Tiger Hill or trek uphill from Ghoom which is a very pleasant experience.
