Summer (March to June)

While the summer is not extreme it may however become uncomfortable during the peak afternoons. Hence it is not considered one of the best times to visit the area.
Monsoon (July to September)
Monsoon sets in, in the month of June and continues till September. In June the rainfall remains moderate but as months go by, particularly during the months of August and September, the showers become torrential. Due to heavy rainfall the sanctuaries too remain closed hence it’s not much fun visiting Dooars during these months except for the lush greenery that surrounds the whole area. Nature lovers may find it the best time to explore the fascinating region.
Winter (October to February)

There are no rains, skies remain crystal clear and weather is perfect for visiting the sanctuaries and enjoying the beauty of nature. A tourism festival called 'Teesta Tea and Tourism fest' is celebrated with much fervor in winter. Activities like paragliding, jungle safari and river rafting are also very popular among the adventurous tourists. In December and January, the temperatures can dip as low as 0°C but mostly hover around 10°C and 23°C.
