Visiting Darjeeling in Dec'09

My family and I plan to visit Darjeeling around Dec-end, primarily to enjoy nature and the mountains. I will be glad to get some advice on whether it is the right time to visit (too cold?), will the Himalayas be visible or hidden in mists/fog, are hotels expensive or economical during that time, will any part of Darjeeling be off-limits due to the season etc. Look forward to your response

Just do a browse through the forums. This post partly answers your questions.


Hotels will be economical as it is not peak season, but its still season for foreigners so don't expect too much discounts.

Darjeeling is cold that time though not as much as Tokyo. most of the time mist & fog covers the entire hills and mountains. at times the sun breaks out and you might be able to see the mountains. its less crowded at that time.

Having been to Darjeeling twice in December quite recently I'd disagree.

On both visits the skies have been clear and the views were fantastic!

Certainly the nights were cold, but daytime temps have been in the mid 70s Fa.
