Travel Advisory:

  • Attraction openings and closures: The government of Sikkim recently announced the reopening of most of its towns and hill stations, including Gangtok, to tourists since the devastating floods that affected the northern parts of the state in late 2023. The place has been deemed safe to visit after further assessment, and the weather has become more 'soothing' in time with the festive season.
  • Weather conditions: Summer, particularly the months between March and May, is the best season to visit Gangtok, with temperatures that range between 18 degrees Celsius at the lowest and 25 degrees at its peak. Locals who live in tropical parts of India and elsewhere usually frequent the area at this time to avoid scorching heatwaves and soaring temperatures. Gangtok also experiences varying degrees of rainfall throughout the year, with the heaviest occurring in the monsoon months of July to September. In wintertime, decreasing temperatures to single-digit numbers and snowfall are commonplace.
  • Tourism-related information: Tourists who intend to travel to Gangtok will need to apply for a Travel Card upon entry to the city. The Travel Card will be used for verification, especially when you encounter enforcement authorities. You can fill out the required information by yourself or with the help of a certified travel agency or hotel management.
