If you really "Want to get the view at fullest" then plan it on October or post October, as September is the last month of Monsoon in the above mentioned region.

Rest assured, it would not rain heavily throughout the day, but some drizzling is excepted for a period of time. So whatever it be, September is not considered as the best month for view.

If you can wait till October (even better if it is November, as the Puja rush subsides after October), it would be good for your trip.

As rightly pointed out by Krishnandu, September would be the fag end of monsoon. So, there is always a possibility of light rains during that time of the year. And to enjoy the best of beauties that the places offer, you need to have a clear blue sky above your head. Hence, I'd suggest you to postpone your trip till November (October will have plenty of tourists around) and enjoy your vacation.

Dear Tarek ,

Suggest to go in October/November.. However, you have to book everything in advance. October is a festive season in Bengal.So, you need to book everything in advance. Specially in Sandakhphu. October/November is the season time for trekkers in Sandakhphu. If you are planning to trek,get in touch with Mr. Saroj Thapa #9083355810. He is a professional guide ( English speaking).He is very helpful & can manage everything for you.
