I visited there in ist week of April 2018 and i was able to visit all the points except the zero point as heavy snowfall started on the way. So it depends on the weather of that day. If heavy snowfall occurs then you cannot go to Zero point.
I'd suggest you to take a flight to avoid the tired train traveling. Keep North Sikkim on priority as it's very beautiful and scenic. Don't forget to stop at Namchi and roam around the Namchi bazaar. Do visit the valley of flowers in North Sikkim.
If you want some real beautiful Mountain peaks view and high altitude lakes, do visit the Changu Lake or Gurdungmar Lake. Don't miss out on the wild Zoo in Sikkim. Gangtok is also a great option on a trip to Sikkim.
Hope it helped you. Happy Travelling!
Go in a group of 4+ to share expenses. Biggest expense would be 2N-3D Lachen,Lachung trip and an innova would normally charge 15-20k for commuting ONLY. So its better you go in a group. Always prefer Innova or Xylo for ALL commuting. NO mahindra MAXX at all(its ok for a one day return trip to Nathula Paas, Tsomgo and Baba Mandir, but not for longer journeys). If you are planning for Nathula, Lachen,Lachung circuit, i would suggest keep a day's gap between them, these three days would end up really exhausting coz it takes 5-8 hours of daily travelling.Muscatel was one of the best hotels we experienced in Sikkim. Dont miss shopping on MG Road, Food at Apna Dhaba, some chillout lounge time at OSM, The Coffee Shop,Cafe Live and Loud.
Sikkim is a beautiful place. I went there in April and left my heart there. IT would require atleast 12 days if you want to cover all major places. However if you are short of time then u must cover these below mentioned places-
2. Nathula and Tsomgo Lake
3. Lachen and lachung
4. Gurudongmar Lake and kala pathar
5. yumthang valley
6. Namchi and Ravangla
8. Pelling Incase you require any specific information..feel free to ask. Happy travelling!!
