Default My visit to Darjeeling...

I will be visiting Darjeeling which is in North east India a small hillstation at the foot of the himalayas..... One can see the Kanchinganga ( The highest peak)from there...

There is a place called Tiger Hill and all tourist go there at 4AM to see the rising sun. I am told it is amazing as the first beam of the sun comes out in the size of a pin hole....

I need your advice as to which lens do I use to capture this. I have two lens Tokina 80-400mm and Canon 55-250mm. I will have no time to change the lens as things change ever second.... Please suggest...

I would go with the tokina, it is optically better then the 55-250.
