Rainfall data (July2023) of some towns in the Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya.

In July2023, the monsoon advance and covered the entire country.
Quite clearly:
  • Rainfall was deficient in Darjeeling, Kalimpong and even Kurseong region. All three towns had very little rain in the latter half of July2023.
  • The foothills of Kalimpong district, ie Gorubathan, Jaldhaka, Mangzing, Jholung had a huge surplus in rainfall.
  • Gangtok and Mangan also had excess rainfall, whereas Dentam went severely deficient.
  • As such, the towns in the plains ie Jalpaiguri and Siliguri had significantly more rainfall compared to the hill towns.
