Hello all!

I'll be visiting India from the September 15th to October 4th.

If I understand correctly this is still pretty much monsoon season... I was wondering if it would be possible to do a hike near Darjeeling during this time?

I had some friends that went to India a few years ago that did a 3 day trek in the area and they said it was one of the most enjoyable activities during their stay... Do you think it'll be possible for me to do the same or because of the weather this is pretty much a no go?

Thanks!

Yes, that should be perfect timing for trekking, you can go for Sandakfu.

Thank you SayanBanerjee for the quick response!

So, I shouldn't worry too much about the monsoon and heavy rains, by then, most of it should have gone away correct?

Yep, that's basically post monsoon, so don't need to worry too much.

Keep a poncho or rain jacket with you, as the weather in the mountain can never be predicted, even if you get the rain hopefully its going to be a light one.
