I think you mean April 2018.

Sorry, I have not idea about this area. However, IH mentions (at indiahikes.com/panchachuli-base-camp-trek-interview) that the ideal months to visit are "from April – June and September – October". Sounds like you are good to go

Hello,
Last October I have visited this area. To my utter dismay, I found share jeep plying between dharchula to dar village. It is good for the villagers though. But the thing is the trek road is also destroyed and not at all maintained. Construction people have blasted the rocks, dumped it over the trek route. The narrow bridges over the rivulets are not usable any more. Only you have to trek from dar to base camp which is hardly one hour trek. There are number of homestay at dar but without any toilet facilities. Better cross the river and stay at the village opposite to dar. Here you will get toilet and 24 hrs view of pc. But from here to pcbc it will take another half an hour more. Dar people can arrange your stay at pcbc. Contact Thakur of Dar village. Only satellite phone works here.
But the are has breathtaking beauties. I have spent 3days at Dar. My seven years old son enjoyed a lot helping village people doing their daily chores. Myself and my husband just hanging out soaking the pristine beauty of Himalayas.
You will get snow fields. But just go. Enjoy

@Asish, Please do share your trip experiences with us once you return. Cheers!!
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
