You can visit Darjeeling and Gangtok as per your plan. Weather in both the places are good now. Occasional rains are there, which won't affect tourists activity. Road to Tsomgo Lake is closed for the time being.

Undoubtedly both the places will be rainy. Landslides are very common during monsoon. However, you can see Tiger Hill, Ghoom Monastery, Toy Train, Zoo, HMI, Tea Garden. Peace Pagoda, Ropeway in Darjeeling.

Gangtok S/S : Lingdum Monastery, Rumtek Monastery, Nehru Botanical Garden, Orchid Sanctuary, Enchey Monastery, Ganesh Tok, Ban Jhakri Falls, Ropeway, Namgyal Institute Of Tibetology, Tashi View Point.

Stay 2 nts in Gangtok and 2 nts in Pelling. Do Pelling first, because, Gangtok is closer to NJP than Pelling which would be advantageous when you'll be coming back. Moreover, landslide is a regular feature during monsoon. Gangtok - NJP highway is more safe and if any landslide occurs in this route, BRO will clear that at war footing.

Rambo ...

It is not wise to Visit Darjeeling and Gangtok within your time frame . either stick on Gangtok and Pelling (as Ashisda already advised ) or Stick to Darjeeling with Kurseong .3 nights Darjeeling and 1 nights kurseong.. if gangtok than suggested plan this way...

Day one 11th August - NJP to Pelling. Overnight Pelling.

Day Two -12th August Local sightseeing at Pelling. Must visit Kanchanjunga falls. Overnight Pelling.

Day Three - 13th August Pelling to Gangtok Via Rabangla . Overnight Gangtok .

Day Five - 14th August - Gangtok Local sightseeing. overnight Gangtok .

Day Six - 16th August - Gangtok to NJP via NAMCHI

Hotel cost around Rs 800-1000 - 1200 depending upon your budget (Asked for Off Season Discount ) .
