Best Time To Visit West bengal

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

The best time to visit West Bengal can be said to be around the winter months, when the weather is cool and less humid. Winter in West Bengal is a good time to enjoy your vacation here without much hassles and without sweating a bucket in this high humidity state. However, some destinations of West Bengal have different best times to visit them. For instance, apart from the winter months, the hilly areas can also be visited during the summers, whereas the coastal regions can be visited during monsoons. However, if you are planning to give the whole state a tour then the best time to visit West Bengal can be said to be from October to March.

Climate in West bengal

Summer Season in West bengal

Summer in West Bengal lasts from the month of April to June, and is the worst time to visit the state for vacation. These months are extremely hot and humid, with the humidity factor sometimes crossing 95%. This makes sightseeing extremely difficult, and a pretty haranguing experience in almost all of the state. Even the greener villages have a high percentage of humidity. However, in hilly areas such as Darjeeling, the temperature remains around 25 degree Celsius and is a favorite for tourists. The crisp cool mountain air and cloudless skies ensure that the weather remains pleasant enough for sightseeing. Try not to plan your vacation in West Bengal around these months, unless you are visiting only Darjeeling and other hilly areas.

Monsoon Season in West bengal

Monsoons in West Bengal last from July to September, and if spending your vacation during the monsoon in West Bengal, then you are sure to be in for a treat. The whole state takes on a new look after the monsoons, with a cleaner, greener aura all around. Heavy rainfall takes place in most areas of the state, and in the hilly areas there are chances of landslides and related roadblocks. If you are planning to visit West Bengal during monsoon, try to avoid the months of monsoon. If you’re interested in visiting the small villages that are famed for their rustic atmosphere, small lakes in the backyard of every house, and the charming locals, then monsoons can be a good time to visit. The lush greenery all around will make sure that you can enjoy yourself to the hilt. You can also visit the place right when the monsoons are ending, and the winters are starting up, which is September.

Winter Season in West bengal

Winters in West Bengal are fleeting, and last from October to March. January is the coldest month here. The slight chill in the air makes the weather a lot more bearable, and ensures that people can enjoy their vacation without the sticky heat that the state is known for. The winter months are actually considered the best time to visit West Bengal for honeymoon¸ due to the absence of the high humidity. Places such as Darjeeling, one of the major tourist destinations of the state, becomes even cooler during these months, thereby attracting more and more tourists to it. If you are planning a West Bengal trip in December then you are sure to have a better time than visiting it during the months of May or July. If visiting during the month of October, you can also get to see Durga Puja, which is one of the most lavishly celebrated festivals of the state.
