December-January in Gangtok and Darjeeling--Weather?

I'm planning to visit India for 3 weeks in December-January.

Is it crazy to visit Darjeeling and Gangtok at that time of year? Will it be too cold?

Yes, it would be cold in Darjeeling and Gangtok. But the places would be flooded with tourists. You will get clear view of Kanchanjangha during this time. The cold would not be untolarable.

Dec-Jan tourists are regularly visiting there , the cold is tolerable. You can consider visiting some nature place like world famous tea gardens , Orange gardens with a nice cottage facility for 2 days also. if you want to have some tour packages in this area ( from Airport to Airport) , you can reach Mousumi at naturewings.m@gmail.com for her expert advice
