we did a trip last fortnight itself. we hired a taxi from airport to gangtok at rs. 1600/- Local sightseeing of Gangtok at rs. 1400.00. Nathula pass and other sightseeing at 3500/- including nathula pass. you don't need to book in advance. it is off season now. you may bargain after reaching at each point.

Just back from an amazing and magical trip to Darjeeling and Gangtok!!! It was a very nice trip...but for all people visiting now or planning in coming month, if u have very small kids, avoid nathula Pass......Rest all great!!!It might be off season for many but I love mountains in monsoons....The cloudy effect over the mountains is just breathtaking!!!!
