Thanks Yogesh

I really appreciate your quick reply. So I understand that to get a shared taxi, I have to come to siliguri town first.

Can you please confirm whether rates will remain same in the month of March or not.

Thanks

march is peak tourist season so it is very difficult to get a shared cab,but you can catch a bus.

rates may be hiked by upto 100rs per passenger because of the tourist season and diesel rates goin up.

if you are more then 4 members then it is more advisable that you hire a personal vehicle.

we the members of the forum would be able to help you better with the travel plan if you post your dates and planned itenery.

thank you and regards,

Hi All

Just to update taxi prices fare set by sikkim govt are available with all taxi but during peak season for demand and supply variations the prices go hayware...this may shared taxi prices from NJP to Gangtok went to 400 per person. And shared taxi mans 9 or 10 person in a sumo or max.
