Limits to cars allowed in Tiger Hill, Darjeeling
Effective 15th September 2019, a new traffic police rule in Darjeeling will allow only up to 600 vehicles per day to visit the Tiger Hill. Initially from September 1, 2019 the police started allowing only 300 vehicles daily, but due to strong protest from transport association and tour operators, the daily limit has now been doubled to 600. The vehicle drivers will be issued coupons daily on a first come first serve basis. This restriction has come into effect because of limited parking at Tiger Hill and huge number of vehicles creating traffic snarls. So what it means for you? If you want to visit Tiger Hill, you need to get hold of a tour operator or a vehicle driver who has received a vehicle coupon/pass to visit Tiger Hill next morning.
