Hello

I have planned to go to Sikkim in Feb. I will reach Bagdogra airport and from there will move to Gangtok. Do I need to pre-book a taxi or are there available on the spot ? Also what will be the cost for a descent non-AC taxi ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Abhi,

You can get the taxi on spot. It will cost you between 1300-1600. I got Wagon R for 1300 for NJP to Gangtok. Govt rate is around 1500.

hi...

We took a cab from Bagdogra airport to Gangtok. There is a prepaid taxi counter at the airport. they charge was Rs. 1500. Another option was to fly to gangtok in a helicopter ... but it is a option only if you reach bagdogra before the afternooon ... it costs Rs. 2000 per person.
