Best Time to Visit Darjeeling

While summer months from April to June are the best time to visit Darjeeling, some travellers also prefer to visit the beautiful town to enjoy the icy-cool winter months from October to December.

October is when the monsoon ends and slight chill sets in. Winter season begins in full swing from mid-November and stretches right up to January when the winter is at its peak. Snowfall is rarely seen in Darjeeling. But sometimes, the temperature can drop down to -2 degree Celsius, so make sure you pack some woollens on your Darjeeling holiday in the winters. 

April to June constitute the summer season in Darjeeling which is very pleasant. The maximum temperature is around 25 degree Celsius. Bright sunlight with windy air in the evenings makes for a great vacation in Darjeeling amidst the picturesque surroundings. This time is also good for sightseeing and adventure sports like paragliding, trekking, etc.

The months of July to September see heavy rainfall in Darjeeling. Monsoons might not be the best time to visit Darjeeling. However, being an off-season you get great deals on the Darjeeling tour packages.
