Best Time to Visit: March-May and September-November. We recommend avoiding the monsoons due to the frequent landslides that often cut off Darjeeling from other cities and disrupt airport and land services.
Clothing: Light woolens & cotton during summers & heavy woolen during winters. Carry your best raingear if traveling during monsoons. Heavy boots and raincoat are a must.
Moving around: This picturesque town is best explored on foot. Bicycles, two-wheelers and taxis are also available for excursions. Private vehicles are also available for sightseeing at fixed rates and may be reserved through Tourist Bureau, Govt. of West Bengal, and Darjeeling.
