June end is not the right time for Darjeeling-Gangtok. Monsoon will be reached by then, if rain continues for longer duration, chances of landslides are there.

You'll get hotel on spot in June end. No need of advance booking. I would insist on self made package instead of MMT.

Well, June end will be early stage of monsoon. So, you may try your luck, if monsoon gets delayed this year.

You have not mentioned age of the kids, hence cost can't be calculated without that. You may take package from reliable tour operator.

Well, the cost should be : Hotel @Rs.3000 x 5 nts = Rs.15000. Transfer and sightseeing = Rs.9000. Meals extra.

Hotels : Darjeeling - Sunflower, Dekeling. Gangtok : The Hidden Forest Retreat, Mintokling G.H. Kalimpong : Orchid Retreat.
