Located in the country’s north, the state of Sikkim enjoys a temperate climate. The different areas of Sikkim range from an altitude of 280 meters to 8,585 meters, and as a result the state experiences a combination of tropical, temperate and frigid climate in different regions of the state.

The summers are pleasant in most part of Sikkim with the average maximum temperature never crossing 28° Celsius. During this time many tourists visit the state to get away from the heat waves that affect most part of the country’s plains. Especially the capital town of Gangtok sees an influx of tourists.

Monsoon starts around June and continues till around September. During this time Sikkim experiences heavy downpour with heavy landslides across the state. The weather is quite humid during the monsoons due to the continuous rainfall that most part of the state receives.

Autumn in Sikkim stretches through September to October and this is considered as a tourist season across the state. During this time the weather is not as less humid and quite pleasant.

Winter here starts around the month of November and continues till around early March, although the temperature drops significantly during the months of December to February. The winters in Sikkim are characterized by foggy chilly mornings and cold nights, and erratic season showers. Temperature dips to below 0° Celsius during winter.

The spring time is experienced during the months of March to May and it is the best season to visit Sikkim, and during this time the weather quite sunny and warm. Like the autumn months, this period is too quite popular among the tourists and visitors throng different parts of Sikkim during these months.
