On day 4 , you can visit Yumthang & zero point ( if Zero point is accessible). Gurudongmar is on another route which can't be visited on the same day. Also on Day 4 after visiting Yumthang you have to come back to Gangtok , so that you can catch the flight from Bagdogra on Day 6. You can book the trip to North Sikkim through any tour operator based in Gangtok or through your hotel in Gangtok. No need to book in advance. You can book the trip after reaching Gangtok

If we stay at lachung and after breakfast in the early morning, we will proceed to Yumthang Valley which is also known as the Valley of Flowers (11800 Ft / 3598 Mts / 25 Kms / 1 hours one way). On the way back, we will visit the Hot Spring, which is considered to have medicinal properties and Singba Rhododendron Sanctuary. Afternoon transfer to Gangtok. On the way, see Bhim Nala Water Fall. Overnight stay at the hotel in Gangtok.

Can we do this? will it be hectic?
We are planning 2018 summer, need suggestion.

If your flight reaches Bagdogra at 4PM I don't think journey for Day 1 to Gangtok is possible. As far as I know, car to Gangtok do not ply after 4 or 5 PM. If you start around 5 PM, expected time to reach will be around 9 PM which is not recommended.
The plan seems to be hectic, either you have to reach Bagdogra airport long before you have planned or plan to visit zero point should be dropped.

Happy journey !!!!

Up to Yumthang should not be a problem in Summer. Try to complete the trip by Mid-May. After that chances of getting rains would increase.
