We had always heard about how the weather in Sikkim in November is more than pleasant. North Sikkim, Lachen, Lachung turn into a winter wonderland and that is exactly what we were hoping to experience on our little escapade. We had our Sikkim trip from Hyderabad to Bagdogra, and then a flight from there and all seven of us were extremely enthusiastic. TravelTriangle simply added to our excitement by ensuring we were being offered the best of services.
Weather In Sikkim In November
It was mainly because of the weather in Lachen in November and the weather in Lachung in November that we planned on paying a visit to Sikkim. The weather was extremely pleasant and made our overall experience wonderful. The chances of snowfall in November were pretty high but we didn’t get a chance to witness that although the temperature did touch zero degrees and the experience was extraordinary. The weather right after autumn was breezy, a little chilly, and comfortable enough for us to experience Sikkim to the fullest.

Top Experiences During 4 Days Sikkim Trip In November
There were a few things that we experienced in Sikkim for the first time ever and we would surely cherish it for the lifetime. Some of the highlights of our 4 days Sikkim trip in November is mentioned below.
1. Journey To Lachen
One of the best things to do in Lachen was definitely the way that led us there. On our way there, we had a few wonderful stops that were truly memorable. We paid a visit to Singhik and the Butterfly falls which were refreshing. A trip to these attractions truly took our fatigue away and helped us get ready for what was in the store for us.
2. Exploring Gurudongmar Lake
This is another one of the main attractions in Sikkim that dropped our jaws to the ground. The pristine blue waters, snow-capped mountains as the backdrop, and the calmness encircling the atmosphere of this destination were enough to inspire awe. This lake is located around 18000 feet above the sea level and offered an impeccably thrilling experience.
3. Touring Around Lachung
We got to experience something more magical on our third day here. This day was all dedicated to exploring the nooks of Lachung. We got to visit the Valley of Flowers aka Yumthang Valley. We had never seen anything this magnificent before. One of the best things to do in Lachung was definitely experiencing zero degrees. After the valley, we headed to Hot Spring that possesses medicinal properties and simply leave all the stress in the waters.
4. Clean Roads And Environment
Apart from the weather in Gangtok in November being good to us, the journey to both Lachung and Lachen was incredibly beautiful because we got to witness the unspoiled nature. There was no sign of plastic in any form and that was fascinating as well as pretty impressive. Witness the rawness of various wonders of mother nature simply took our breaths away!
Hotels In Sikkim
We were offered the best hotels in Gangtok, Lachen, Lachung, and we couldn’t be more thankful. All the properties offered to us were either a 3-star property or a 4-star property. The hospitable staff of these hotels welcomed us with arms wide open and the best of services. Hotel Green Tara was our favorite accommodation and stay option in Lachung. The food offered in these hotels was just another plus. Since we got all our meals at the hotel itself, we didn’t really feel the need to go out to any restaurants as the food served there was in itself drool-worthy.
What To Pack For Sikkim In November
Sikkim is all set to welcome the chilly winds in the month of November. There are certain things that one should definitely pack for their excursion as you don’t want any regrets once there. When talking about a packing tip for Sikkim trip, we recommend packing as many woolens as you can. Make sure you have all your winter essentials including gloves, socks, boots, jackets, and pullovers. Also, it is best if you could carry little tablets of camphor. This helps one in breathing better up at the hills which are at a higher altitude.
Personal Expenses Incurred In Sikkim
With our major expenses being already taking care of including the flights and the hotels, we didn’t really have that much of expenses. Mainly the money was spent on a little bit of shopping as we only got a chance to eat the food served by the hotel which was already paid for. It was seven of us and together we spent around INR 35,000/- personally.
