Here are some details on the best time to take a trip to Geyzing.
Summer (April – June)
The most ideal time to visit Geyzing falls during the summer months of Sikkim, which witness cool temperatures in the range of 18ᴼC-25ᴼC. The melting snow at the end of winter season leaves behind a clean atmosphere and beautiful landscapes that appear lush and green. All forms of sightseeing and outdoor activities are best undertaken in this weather and this is the ideal time to seek relaxation and rejuvenation.
Monsoon (July – September)
Unlike other areas in western Sikkim, Geyzing witnesses the influx of tourists to a large degree even in the rainy monsoon season. This is because Geyzing receives only mild to moderate rainfall that doesn’t hinder travel to a large extent, and maintain a pleasant temperature range of 10ᴼC-15ᴼC. The beauty of Geyzing is identifiable at its peak after being washed by the rains and appears vibrant and lively.
While it may not be for everyone, witnessing piercing winters of western Sikkim is an experience on its own. The intense cold weather leads to temperatures that often fall to sub-zero levels, and may even go below -10ᴼC on some occasions. Precipitation in the form of snowfall is quite common, and the climate remains dry and frosty. Visitors who do intend to brave this weather are advised to pack enough warm woolens while traveling during these months.
