You may try the following itinerary :

Day 1 Bagdogra/NJP – Sighik

Day 2 Singhik – Lachen

Day 3 Lachen – Chopta Valley – Lachung

Day 4 Lachung – Yumthang- Gangtok

Day 5 Gangtok - local sightseeing

Day 6 To Darjeeling

Day 7 Darjeeling - local sightseeing

Day 8 Return to Bagdogra/NJP

Khadungla is in Ladakh (Western Himalaya). If you mean Nathula, yes it is possible in March end.

June end will not be a suitable time for visiting Darjeeling and Gangtok. Monsoon will be at its peak in June end. Its a landslide prone zone. Maximum landslides occur in monsoon, specially if the rain continues for longer duration.

Many thanks for the response AshisRoy, how about Srinagar-Ladakh for 6 nights-7 days?

Since you have knowledge in Kashmir as well, I posted this query here.
