How about Lava monastery. I will be reaching Lava around 4 pm. can this be covered?

Not sure whether you will be able to visit the monastery this late. If not try out the following morning.

Apart from the monastery you should try to visit the Neora Valley National Park.

Also, it is recommended that you spend the night at Rishyap so that you get to see the sunrise and a view of Kanchenjunga far away.
Two roads diverged in a wood and I I took the one less traveled by.

If u are staying in Lava its better not to plan for any sightseeing in the afternoon, the weather here becomes very cloudy/foggy after 4pm. So as Indra has suggested, morning is always a better option. It takes 10/15 mins of down the hill walk to reach Lava monastery from the WBFDC cottages, but going back will be hectic and may take more than 30 mins depending on your age and fitness. Apart from the Lava monastery and the market there are not much of sightseeing places which are in walking distance, but you always have the option of a short trek to reach Rishyap.
