Hi Varun. October to May would be the best time to visit Sikkim. If you love snow and want to enjoy extreme winters, better to visit anytime between October to February. If you want to enjoy pleasent cold, better to visit anytime between March to May. Places to visit in Sikkim: 1. Gangtok

6. Nathula pass(Permits depends on the weather conditions) Food: I personally feel wherever you go, try the best local cusine. Best local cusine you can give a try are: 1. Momos

We went in april and totally loved it. It would require atleast 12 days to cover the entire sikkim. However if you have less days, you can choose the places that are of more interest to you. We went to gangtok, nathula, tsomgo lake, gurudongmar lake, lachen, lachung, pelling, ravangla, namchi, and yumthang. Incase you need any help with the packages..do let me know and I'll give the contact details of the person who organised mine. Happy Travel!!!
