Hi,

It will be pretty cold, night temps will be in and around 0 C. But hotels will have heating and its not that bad during the day. You can go for it. A lot of people do.

Both the destinations can be visited in Feb. It would be cold but enjoyable. There will be cool breeze in morning hours.

Besides, it won't be too much colder than Hong Kong in December. :)

Hi Janet,

I would highly recommend you to visit the mentioned places in early Feb because the weather would be just fantastic and enjoyable though there is a chance that many parts of Sikkim would be closed due to heavy snow. Nothing can be said about North Sikkim, Nathula route and Silk route. Everything depends on nature. I visited Sikkim in early Feb and all the roads were clear. The journey by the mountainous roads will be a great adventure and the scenic beauty is just awesome. I would suggest you to spend more days in Sikkim rather than in Darjeeling.

Regards,

Abhijit
