No chance of snow in Gangtok. You might get to see snow in North Sikkim in places like Zuluk or Zero Point, and in Nathu La pass.

You will not get snowfall in Pelling or Darjeeling. At Nathula pass, you can only see the snow. It may fall if you are very very lucky, but don't expect it.

You'll get plenty of snow in Katao, Gurudongmar and even in Yumthang also [North Sikkim]. April is the best time for North Sikkim. There will be full of Rhododendron and Primulas around Yumthang. Keep 2 nts for North Sikkim.

"....snowfall in Pelling or Darjeeling". The OP is planning for April. You must have overlooked the month.

Anyway, H.N.Y.

Ashisda,

I don't quite understand what you mean. I have said there is no snowfall in Pelling or Darjeeling, I know the month is April. There is no chance of snowfall in either of these places in April.

Happy New Year to you too.

If Tsomgo road is open, you'll get snow there in February.

During the month of April snow can be found at North Sikkim only
