Hi fellow travellers! :)

I have finalized the following itinerary based on research. Would be grateful for your thoughts and suggestions on the same:

Day 01: Bagdogra to Gangtok

Day 02: Tsongmo Lake & Nathula Pass. Overnight in Gangtok.

Day 03: Gangtok Local Sightseeing. Overnight in Gangtok

Day 04: Gangtok to Lachen via seven sister waterfalls. Overnight in Lachen.

Day 05: Lachen - Thangu- Gurudongmar Lake - Chopta Valley - Lachen – Lachung. Overnight in Lachung

Day 06: Lachung - Yumthang Valley - Yume Samdong (Zero Point) and back to Lachung. Walk around the village in the evening. Overnight in Lachung. (possibility of staying in Katao?)

Day 07: Lachung to Gangtok. Overnight in Gangtok

Day 08: Gangtok to Pelling. Overnight in Pelling

Day 09: Stay in Pelling. Overnight in Pelling.

Day 10: Pelling to Bagdogra

Also, wanted to check if we should finalize the tour operators beforehand or would it be preferable to do it once we reach Gangtok? We are anyways planning to book accommodation for all nights on our own.

Itinerary looks good.
You'll have more choices of operators once you reach Gangtok. Also to finalize the tour operator in Gangtok and get the permits, you may want to swap Day 2 and Day 3.
Alternatively you can book the operator before hand.
