Monsoon strikes Mirik at the end of June. You can expect heavy showers in the region which may hinder sightseeing plans.

Since it is a hill station, there is the added danger of landslides and cave-ins too, which may lead to roadblocks and traffic jams in the mountainous paths. It is best to consult with local authorities before planning a trip to Mirik in the monsoon.
