Travel from Bagdogra to Gangtok

Hi, I will be travelling from Bagdogra to Gangtok on the 5th of April 2014. Are there any share cabs available at Bagdogra or one has to take the full pre-paid cab only. Since I will be travelling alone, don't mind sharing with someone. What are the costs? How tough is it to get a cab outside the airport? Read some posts which make the taxi driver crowd outside the airport sound pretty chaotic.

Regards,

Hi

I have recently visited to Gangtok; you can easily get a a cab,Drivers are outside the airport and Station and you can bargain ...cost is between 2000 to 2500 for full small car no sharing

People are very nice there if you are lucky, any cab going back to Gangtok may ready for lesser price

No challenge getting taxi/cab there ; I can share cell number of driver , he was very nice person and arranged all sightseeing and other visit in very reasonable price

Driver's name is Simon - cell # 09749577415

thanks
