Hi Ashish169

N/Sikkim would be best in april covered with snow. You would find snow in Tsongmo lake/nathula/baba mandir trip also. N/Sikkim and Tsongmo lake/nathula/baba mandir would require permit. the tour operators can procure the same. you need to have photo id along with 2 copies of photo for each of the trip. My suggestive itenary would be

Day 1 - Bagdogra to gangtok. overnight at gangtok.

Day 2 - Gangtok local s/s. Overnight at gangtok.

Day 3 - gangtok to lachen. lachen overnight.

Day 4 - lachen to lachung. Overnight at lachung.

Day 5 - Lachung to gangtok. overnight at gangtok.

Day 6 - Gangtok to tsongmo lake/Baba mandir/nathula. Overnight at gangtok.

Day 7 - Gangtok to Bagdogra.
