Lataguri experiences a tropical climate owing to its geographical location. Its proximity to the Gorumara National Park in West Bengal makes it a sought after tourist attraction. It is here that one can get a permit to enter the Gorumara National Reserve and the Wildlife Sanctuary at Chapramari located nearby. Since these natural reserves draw tourists in quite a large number, one would conclude that the best time to visit Lataguri is when the rains do not ruin one’s outdoor plans. And the rains really can hamper one’s plans because the region receives heavy rainfall every year. The summer season also is not recommended as the temperature can soar as high as 38°C making it an inappropriate time to venture out. Hence, Winters from December to February are one’s best bet to visit Lataguri. This is when the climate remains moderately cool; the skies are clear and perfect for exploring attractions in and around the quaint little town.
