Weather prediction before a month is not possible, specially for hill regions, where climate gets change every now and then. However, May end is good time for N/Sikkim, there might be occasional rains in evening or night. But that won't last longer. Take umbrella/Mackintosh.

Kamalesh Jain,

Yes, there will be snow at Yumesedong/Katao/Zero Point and various parts of N/Sikkim. You must take heavy woolens.

As of now the weather is tourist friendly in N/Sikkim. Chances of short spell of rains are there. But no one can predict on the weather of N/Sikkim, it may change at anytime.

Is Katao located at a higher altitude than Zero Point? May this place appear to be something special if we have already visited Zero Point? If I have to choose one between the two spots - Katao and Zero Point which should I prefer?

Right now weather is very good clear. but it can be bad any time as weather at sikkim is very tough to predict. it is better you carry umbrella or raincoat. last week there was a rain on Gangtok side , but now weather is clear. may end north Sikkim is fine but road condition of north Sikkim is terrific. Day you can expect 13-15 and night 8-10.degree. it can differ time to time with locality and temperate. Overall north Sikkim is quite ok
