Taxi Fare from NJP to Kaluk/Pelling

I am going for Honeymoon in Kaluk and Pelling on 4th of January. I have searched several posts in this forum but couldn't find the recent taxi fare. Could anybody tell me the current taxi fare from NJP to Kaluk and also from Pelling to NJP.

During this time if any Honeymoon couples are travelling feel free to contact me.

But its very rare to get share cab from NJP to Kaluk.You have to change vehicle atleast 1or 2 times.You have to go Siliguri Bus terminus, Your route for Kaluk would be Siligudi-Meli-Jorangthan-KalukFrom Pelling you can easily get sharing cab for NJP.

This is going to be our honeymoon trip so we don't want any hustle. I would like to book a Indica for our journey. We may avail shared cab only with any other couples.

What is the best location for booking cab _ NJP or Siliguri? We are traveling by Darjeeling Mail.

For Gangtok and Darjeeling cab are easily available in front of NJP station.But for kaluk and Pelling it is better to move siliguri (Siliguri Jn/Tenging Norgay Bus Terminus/SNT Bus Terminus) .There you can search for cabs and do bargain as much as u can.

Last week I was touring around Hee, Barmiok, Kaluk & Rinchenpong areas of West Sikkim. I found it is easier to avail share cab from SNT Taxi Stand at Siliguri to reach any of those places. Share cab is very much available in regular interval for Jorethang @ 170/- per person. Jorethang Cab Stand is a well maintained one and I got share cab for Barmiok from 2nd Fl. of the stand. Moreover journey was hesel free more or less. From Jorethang to Barmiok fare for share cab is Rs.100/- only per person.
