First slide
Tiger Hill

To watch the dawn light break over a spectacular 250 km stretch of the Himalayan horizon, including Everest (8848 m), Lhotse (8501 m), and Makalu (8475 m) to the far west, rise early and take a jeep out to Tiger Hill (2590 m), 11 km south of Darjeeling, above Ghum.  This daily morning spectacle (views are best in autumn and spring) is a major tourist attraction, and you'll find hundreds of jeeps leaving Darjeeling for Tiger Hill every morning at 4 am – traffic snarls en route are quite common.
