February - March and September - November is the best time to visit Darjeeling. Winters are harsh from cold, however, snowfall is rarely seen in Darjeeling. Summers, on the other hand, are a bit warmer than winters yet colder than the rest of West Bengal, hence making it an ideal time to visit. Darjeeling receives heavy rainfall that causes landslides and blocked roads during Monsoons making inaccessible and challenging to travel to.
