By 3:45 you leave for Tiger Hill. Your trip to Darjeeling is hollow if sunset view of Tiger Hill is not involved. At an elevation of 8000 feet, it is easier to spot the peaks changing color as sun changes it position and gradually starts to set. The sunrays first hit two of most popular and highest peaks of the world; Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga Peak. This moment is rush-free and de-stressing.
Afterwards, on your way back to the hotel, stopover at Ghoom Monastery, Batasia Loop and Peace Memorial. Ghoom Monastery was founded by Lama SherabGyatso in 1875. The statue of MaitreyaBudhha, which is 15 feet tall, is a crowd-pleaser. Batasia Loop is yet another place where you can unwind and can pay homage in Peace Memorial. Return to the room and have your breakfast.
