Best Seasons in Sikkim

There is beauty everywhere you look in Sikkim, whether it is spring, autumn, winter or the monsoons. You can stride on snow even in the mid of summer and within a matter of three to four hours descend to tropical forest with snow-feed streams to accompany you. In the inhabited region of Sikkim, temperature seldom exceeds 28°C in summer and drops below 0° C in winter. Monsoons have a different charm with waterfalls erupting in every bend of the roads and forests muffled in myriad colours. If you love the rains, mist and fog play hide and seek over hills, visit Sikkim between June-September.

From mid September, you can have a clear view of the majestic peaks shimmer against the azure sky. Winter months from December to early March, through chilly is festive season- from the esoteric monastic dance to the tribes celebrating New Year – Namsoong, Losoong, Sonam Losar, TeyongsiSirijungaTongnametc to the Hindi rituals of Ramnawami to MagheSankranti held in the confluence of Teesta and Rangeet. And the spring gives way to the snowy peaks and a plethora of flowers, perfect for the annual orchid snow and rhododendron festival.

Weather you want to visit Sikkim in spring, winter or monsoons, just make sure you carry warm clothes as evening and mornings can be unusually chilly.
