Winter is the time most tourists wait to visit Siliguri as the weather is perfect and not too cold. Temperatures range from 8 degrees C to 25 degrees C. During this time; the nearby hill stations are blessed with snowfalls, making a breathtaking sight you wouldn't want to miss, not to forget the snow-capped views of Kanchenjunga mountain range – the third highest mountain peak in the world. This is also the ideal time for adventure junkies to visit. You can trek to Sandakphu. Have a shot at paragliding in Kalimpong. Or take a trip to Teesta to bust a gust at river rafting in the gushing waters. Whether you plan a solo backpacker trip, a romantic trip with your partner or a fun-filled holiday with your family, Siliguri has it all.

Siliguri experiences heavy rainfall during June. This lasts till September. The downpours are a relief from the scorching heat. Temperatures range between 25 degrees C to 30 degrees C. While this may not be the perfect time for sightseeing or visiting the nearby hill stations, you can stay indoors and experiment with the highly favourite Bengali teas or head out to try the Bengali cuisine, which is rich and unique, like the state of West Bengal itself. Aloo Potol Posto (a meal made out of potatoes and pointed gourd), Shukto (fish served with a wide range of vegetables like brinjal, bitter gourd, drumsticks and many more), and the evergreen Sandesh (a sweet dish made up of milk and khoya – tastes heavenly).

Siliguri in Summer (April - June)

In Siliguri, temperatures in Summer skyrocket to 35 degrees C - 37 degrees during the day. And due to its proximity to most hill towns (an hour-long car drive), most locals and tourists prefer to head to any of the hill stations to get away from the hot city life. Early mornings and late evenings are the ideal time to roam around Siliguri in Summer. You can visit the Hongkong Market for one of a kind street shopping experience and for quite a bargain! Visit The North Bengal Science Centre to satiate your thirst for knowledge.
