One can pay a visit to Kolakham throughout the year, except the monsoons. However, the best season to visit is March and April that is known as the orchid season. November to February is quite cold but one can experience the glimpse of mighty Kanchenjhengha during most of the days of these months., and Lava normally receives snowfall in January. May and October are comfortable. The best time to enjoy Lava & Kolakham is during the off-season of November to April, when tourists are few and the solitude of these Himalayan retreats can be best enjoyed.
