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.

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.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Travel agent (deepraj)was very helpful and always reachable . Hotel quality cud have been better for 4 star hotels. Cab cud be given for full day. Like if i m going from pelling to gangtok. So once we reach gangtok at 2 pm driver will drol n leave n come next day. N i ask ant to go to market for 2-3 km then i have to gire another cab. They could proved cab on rental basis for full day n driver can stay with us n if we want to go market n shop 3-4 km he can go. It very inconvenient after taking the full package of 7 days then also we have to hire separate cab. Nathula pass

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      I must thank Sai tours and travels for the amazing experience i had during my solo trip to darjeeling- sikkim from 6th to 12th aug 2019. I had multiple issues from the time of booking however it was smoothly arranged and sorted by Mr Shivasish. I also had an amazing driver/guide Mr Binod who went an extra mile to make my birthday a memorable one. They made sure i had the best experience in every place i visited and also ensured i was safe and comfortable throughout.I celebrated my brithday there in a monastery and they were so thoughtful to get me a lovely cake and some candies to be distributed to the children in the monastery. Unlike regular tours and travels, they ensured there is a human touch to the services provided which in the end gave a high level of customer satisfaction. They look into the issues highlighted seriously and rectifies it as soon as possible to ensure customers and well taken care of. I will strongly recommend their service to any traveler especially if its your first time and you are not quite sure of whereabouts. I am very sure they can not only create a good and safe trip but also a memorable experience that you would cherish. gangtok , darjeeling

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Hi all this is my first trip with TT and expected a lot . Thought this trip would be a memorable in my life but unfortunately its not , because of poor coordination , planning and communication . I missed few places like natulla pass and few others . Travel agent by name DEEPAK was very rude . Accomodation was not upto the mark as there were poor facilities like lack of hot water , door hinges were dangling and food issues . Travel agents ( Neeraj and deepak ) dont answer / reply to the calls and they didnt communicate propley. Shivani was helpful through watsap Rest all omg ...... 1. Driving ......really appreciate drivers .A big applause 2. Yumtung valley 3. Zero point 4. Lachung

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Hotel Royal Sarvara in Darjiling was not so good as compared to rest of the hotels. Yumthang valley in Lachung was great. The landslides on the way back from Lachung to Gangtok was truoblesome but it was a great experience with a dash of adventure involved thus included in best memories.

    FAQ's of West Bengal

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    West Bengal is a great place for foodies. Try to savor the fish preparations here, and the sweets.

    You can club Sikkim and Orissa with your West Bengal trip.

    It is very hot and humid in West Bengal during the summers and the monsoons, so make sure to carry light and airy clothes if visiting during this time. For the winter months, carry light woolens.

    The ideal duration for a West Bengal tour depends on the destinations that the tourists wish to cover and the experiences they want to choose. A 4 nights, 5 day trip would ideally cover all major destinations in a hassle-free manner. However, if tourists wish to explore more offbeat destinations then a longer trip can be arranged. Consult the travel agents at Travel Triangle for more information regarding the same.

    Tourists should try to visit West Bengal during the winter months, from November to February
