Best Time To Book Holidays Packages For Sikkim

The best time for a Sikkim trip plan is the spring and summer season. From March through early May, the weather in Sikkim is mostly clear and the temperatures are pleasant for sightseeing. Another ideal time to book our Sikkim trip packages is between October and mid-December. This fall season or post-monsoon season in Sikkim is also the best time to indulge in adventure sports such as trekking and skiing. Make sure to check our tour packages to know more about the Sikkim tour cost and things to do in Sikkim.

Winter Season

With the onset of winter season, tourist footfall in Gangtok and other places in Sikkim decreases. Aside from New Year and Christmas holidays, winter is generally considered an offseason for Sikkim tourism.

Summer Season

The summer months, from April to June, are the best time to plan a visit to Gurudongmar Lake, Yumthang Valley, and Nathula Pass. The temperature during this season remains between 13 degree Celsius to 28 degree Celsius.

Monsoon Season

Monsoon season arrives early in the Northeast so beware of heavy rainfall and landslides between late June and early September. It is not advisable to book tour packages for Sikkim in the monsoon season to remote areas due to the threat of downpour and torrential rains.

How to Reach Sikkim?

The state is accessible from all major cities in India by train and by air. There are direct trains from major junctions in India to reach Sikkim. The nearest train station from Gangtok is located in New Jalpaiguri in West Bengal. From there tourists can board a bus or hire local taxis to visit Sikkim.

For inter-state travel, Gangtok acts as the base to explore remote regions such as Yuksom, Pelling, and Yumthang Valley in North Sikkim. Here are the following various modes to plan a trip to Sikkim, also make sure to explore our guide for Sikkim to plan the best tour packages for Sikkim.

By Air

The newly-opened Pakyong Airport (PYG) is located about 35 kilometres south of the state capital Gangtok. At the moment, SpiceJet offers direct flights from Guwahati and Kolkata to this airport in Sikkim. It takes less than 90 minutes to reach Kolkata to Sikkim Airport by nonstop flight. The secondary airport to travel to Sikkim is Bagdogra Airport (IXB) near Siliguri. It lies about 125 km from the state capital and is approachable via taxi or bus in about three hours. Bagdogra Airport is directly connected with Delhi and Kolkata by nonstop flights.

By Road

The state is accessible from northern areas of West Bengal. Destinations such as Darjeeling, Kalimpong, and Siliguri are directly connected via public transport and private taxis to Gangtok and other places in Sikkim. It is not advisable to travel by road to Sikkim during the monsoon season as landslides and torrential rains often block road network. Tourists can reach Gangtok in 1 hour from the nearest PYG Airport. And, it may take up to three hours to reach Gangtok from New Jalpaiguri Train Station.

By Rail

Currently, the state of Sikkim does not have any train connectivity. The nearest broad-gauge station is in West Bengal’s New Jalpaiguri (near Siliguri), which is a three-hour drive from Gangtok. New Jalpaiguri station lies on major train routes from metro cities in India including Kolkata and Delhi. Shared taxis or public buses regularly run between Gangtok and New Jalpaiguri for travellers.

Myself and my wife booked for 9D/8N Sikkim/Darjeeling/Kalimpong trip. We selected We care Holidays as it provided us the least cost. First and foremost thanks to Madan Sir of We Care Holidays as he provided excellent support to us throughout our trip. Madan and Ajay provided us good drivers and they were gracious to provide us a KUV for our trip. (We had different drivers for sikkim and west bengal.) Commitment of Madan was excellent and experienced it many times. I share a personal friendship with him. Hotels were good and safe for women/family travellers. Food at hotels too were good. I recommend we care holidays for sikkim/Darjeeling/Kalimpong trips and looking forward to do a North Sikkim trip early next year. Watching beautiful Mt.Kanchenjunga from hotel in Pelling

Overall it was Good experiences dealing with Joy from Holiday Guide and a very memorable trip to Darjeeling and Gangtok. Tiger Hill and Nathula Pass is must visit. There was little screw up done on the approval front for Natthula pass wherein we were put in a sharing cab with others which were not executive class. Other than that the Hotel Sian Resort & Spa where we stayed in Darjeeling was not having the credit card swipe m/c, drop to Hotel after visiting MG Road & Mall Road was not organised. Also, during our visit to Pashupati market the taxi fare has been paid from our end. You need to be very clear while finalising the package and basically include what you need. Customization of a package is welcome by Holiday Guide but somewhere they can be more professional and upfront in their dealings going forward.

Udayagiri's 7 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

4 years ago
Overall the trip was ok. However I have faced problems with the Drivers. The Driver for first 3 days were OK. But on day 4 we had a different driver for local sight seeing in Gangtok and dropping us to Darjeeling. The driver reported 1 hour late. He was talking very rudely with us. He was driving very fast due to which my wife / my son / my mother had severe health problems. I have asked him to drive slow few times but he was adamant and driving fast since he has to come back to Gangtok same day after dropping us at Darjeeling. Have informed Mantosh about this problem and requested him to arrange good driver for balance 2 days. But the driver arranged for balance 2 days was also not OK. For Darjeeling trip driver was insisting to visit additional points and wanted extra money. Hotels arranged in Gangtok (Tashi Palace) and in Lachung (Apple Valley Inn) were OK. But Hotel Yuma in Darjeeling was not OK. The hotel is very old and rooms were dirty. The service in all the hotels was good. Had best time during the first 3 days of the tour - Gangtok / Natula Pass / Lachung / Yumthang Valley.

Interesting Things to Do in Sikkim

Some travellers visit Sikkim simply to enjoy the views of the Himalayas and breathe clean air, but most flock here to discover hidden monasteries, explore the treks in western Sikkim, and learn about local heritage. Things to do in Sikkim range from laid-back experiences like yak rides for couples and families to outdoor thrills like trekking for adventure junkies.

West Sikkim is particularly known for popular treks around the third highest mountain peak in the world. From day hikes to up to 10-day treks to higher elevations, there are trails passing through alpine forests, glacial lakes, and rolling meadows.

Rhododendron Trek and Dzongri Trek start from Yuksom, which is the main base camp for several high-altitude treks in Sikkim. Keep in mind that a permit is required for tourists to enjoy trekking in Sikkim.

2. Paragliding

Take the exciting bird’s-eye view of Sikkim’s landscape to make your holidays in Sikkim memorable. Summer months from March through early June, when the weather and air is warmer, is the ideal time to enjoy this activity with your family and friends.

3. River Rafting

There is no better joy to conquer the white rapids of the Teesta River in Sikkim. The stretch of the river from Makha to Sirwani and onward to Bardang is popular for Grade 3 and Grade 4.
