Summer - As the altitude of Rishyap is very high (almost 2600 m), it is a perfect destination of Summer Holidays and Summer Vacation Tour. During summer the temperature varies between 18 ° C in daytime to 8 °C in night. Weather is pleasant with mild temperature, chilly night, full blooms of rhododendron, and clear sky offers a magnificent view of Mt. Kanchenjungha with others’ Himalayan peaks with stunning view. Generally during this time morning remains clear but with the advancement of daytime sometimes it can become foggy. So, it is suggested for early rise, behold the spectacular sunrise from the Tiffindara (just 1 km trek) viewpoint.

Monsoon - Monsoon in Rishyap especially in entire North Bengal hills starts from 1st week of July and remains till end of September. It rains a lot in hills, landslides are common and possibilities to get stranded are very high. Nothing to do except staying in Home stay or Hotel and enjoying the rain with hot tea or coffee. So unless you are monsoon lover, NatureWings will not suggest you for Rishyap Tour Booking in monsoon.

Winter - Generally winter in North Bengal hills starts a little early like November and extends till 1st half of March. Winter in Rishyap is biting. You can experience 6 °C in daytime to 0°C at night. If, you can cope with that you can obviously travel Rishyap during winter.

Hailing from humid Kolkata, Sikkim, and Darjeeling occupies a special place inside us apart from being the nearest hill station. NatureWings was recommended to me by my brother in law who went to the Silk Route with them. I booked my trip for December 2019, and Mr. Akash from NatureWings actively took my call and provided me with a personalized itinerary. Their service was swift and even allowed me to make some changes on the trip. Our driver Mr. Tamang was a friendly person who treated and guided us very well, and his car was comfortable and well maintained. We got good view rooms, and the food served at both the places was fresh and hot. My trip went flawlessly, and thanks to the NatureWings team for their effort to make our trip a memorable one.

Being a solo woman traveler, it is not easy to find a trusted travel agency, and as I had previously gone for a Bhutan Package Tour with NatureWings so thought of visiting the Silk route with them. NatureWings Silk Route specialist Mr. Akash provided me with an excellent budget-friendly itinerary covering the best sightseeing places and also allowed me to make the changes I urged. All my queries were answered patiently by him, and as I was traveling alone, so he provided me a good driver who guided me well and followed my custom itinerary. The wooden cottages booked for me in the green valley of Kolakham was beautiful, and the view from my room was like a dream come true, as I saw Mt. Kanchenjunga standing head up high from my balcony with floating clouds passing by. Mr. Indrajeet booked good, safe rooms near to the reception and made sure to make comfort calls every day. Kolakham and Charkhole have a charm of its own, smiling people, far from the crowded cities, in the lap of untouched nature with picturesque views of the mountains that we could only dream. I would love to explore other destinations with NatureWings and recommend others also.

It was a amazing trip. I liked the way you are planning. Hotels and drivers were very good. But there was only one thing which is not good and the thing is the wastage of food at the hotel in gangtok. They should ask their customers for their requirement of food. Otherwise it was a great experience with NatureWings. Thank you.
