Best time to visit West Bengal
Pleasant weather is vital for an enjoyable vacation. We thus recommend you book a special India tour package to West Bengal between October to April. The summers observe scorching heat so it’s best to avoid any trip during this time. The months between October and March are ideal for enjoying a vacation at the coastal attractions and hill stations. However, there can be a huge variation in the geographic locations located near the coastal areas and the Himalayas.
