October to February is rather too cold as it snows time and again; in the higher reaches of the Himalayas and Trans Himalayan regions temperature falls way below freezing points.
Required Clothing  
Lightweights to medium-weights from March to October. Warmer wears for the winter. Weather can change rapidly in mountains and it is therefore important to be suitably equipped.

Gangtok is a city, which, till one sees it, one would believe exists only in picture-story books. In the mystery-laden mists prayer flags whip in the breeze; wheels spin in the hands of Lamas mumbling invocations to God, in the distance are the snows, on the streets amidst brightly painted pagoda roofed houses, lined with friendly smiling people are silver, silk and spice and jewellery to gladden an maiden's heart, from across the seven seas are gadget and goods to delight the collector of "imported goods', while directly overlooking the city is the hill Lukshyma, the 'Mother of Pearl' citadel of the magic mountain, Khang-Chen-Dzod-Nga.
The main markets for shopping are Old market, New Market and Lal market. Here one finds shops of all kind, which offer good range of items to be purchased.Some of the sites to visit include:Rumtek monestry,Yumthang Hot Springs.>>TOP
