Yumthang remain accessible throughout the year. But route to Gurudongmar usually gets blocked during that time. Similarly, Zero point may not be accessible. You can reach Tsomgo / Baba Mandir unless there is heavy snowfall a day before your journey. For Nathula please check the info on permit issues after reaching Gangtok.

Yes, you will find loads of snow in Yumthang valley. It ( Gangtok -Lachung /Yumthang - Gangtok ) requires at least a 1N/2D trip. Tsomgo lake + Baba Mandir is a full day trip from Gangtok. So, altogether you need at least 4 days in Gangtok ( Including North Sikkim, Yumthang trip).

Add 2 days each for Pelling & Darjeeling

Yes & 1 night at Lachung .

BTW, how many days do you have ? if it is for 6 nights then you have to drop either Darjeeling or Pelling . If for 7 nights, then please let me know your train / flight timings at NJP / Bagdogra , so that a suitable plan can be chalked out .

Rumtek is not on the route to Pelling from Gangtok. Though, you can take a detour & visit Rumtek first on 26th Jan before proceeding to Pelling. In that case start around 9 am from Gangtok & you would reach Pelling around 4/5 pm in the eveinging . But after coming back from Yumthang previous day, it could be hectic. So , if you want to visit monasteries you may add one day in Gangtok & book return ticket from Bagdogra on 29th.

Please see my Post No #2. Route to Gurudongmar & Zero Point would be blocked. But you can visit other places in January.

On day 4, have a half day sightseeing trip from Pelling ( To Pemayangtse Monastery, Kanchenjungha Water Fall & Kechiperi Lake ) in the morning session & then proceed to Gangtok on the same day. This is the only merger I can think of.
