Hi,

I planned a trip to LAVA >> RISHOP >> LOLEGAON (it is the itinerary) at the end of March 2010 and booked WBFDC's accommodation at LAVA and LOLEGAON. At RISHOP, I chose “LOVELY RESORT”. In this tour we are two adults and a 2 yrs old baby.
My queries follow as, please help me.
1.How is the as usual climate during the period 31 Mar’10 to 5 Apr’10 at these three places?
2.Does a shared cab or any bus reach directly to LAVA, WBFDC campus from NJP station?
3.Does a shared cab or any bus reach directly to NJP station from LOLEGAON, WBFDC campus?
4.Is there any facility of public transports (i.e. Bus/shared cab) as I would like to avail the public transport during this entire tour for budget constraint. If you think only booking of a car is the prime option over there to travel LAVA to RISHOP and RISHOP to LOLEGAON then please give me an idea of how much could be the expenditure.

Please advice
Sidd

You will not get any bus/share jeep in the Dooars area. You have no option but to book a car for yourself. I am not sure about the rates, but should be around Rs 1200 per day.

Hi arnabbthika,

I expected such a person who visited recently that he/she can help me in a good way. In this tour we are husband-wife and our kid of 2yrs old.
We reach NJP by 31 March 2010 and will return from NJP by 5 April 2010. The itinerary is the following.
Date-----------Place-------Accommodations
31 MAR 2010 >> LAVA >>>>> WBFDC Resort, GOVT
01 APR 2010 >> RISHOP >>>> Private
02 APR 2010 >> RISHOP >>>> Private
03 APR 2010 >> LOLEGAON >> WBFDC Resort
04 APR 2010 >> LOLEGAON >> WBFDC Resort

I need to know most of the things like rate & availability of public transport (in worst case private) from destination to destination, sight seeing and how that can be covered, health food and weather.

NB: Budget constraint is one of the prime factors.

Thanks again for giving interest to me. plz reply soon

Lava- Rishap trekking distance and estimated time

We have planned to visit Lava Lolegaon Rishap at the middle of April.
Can any one tell me the distance and how much time it takes to trek from Lava to Rishap?
We have anly 4days and 3 nights to spend there. The itinarary I have thought of is

1>Day1: NJP to Rishap via Kalimpong by hired car and stay there
2>Day2: Rishap to Lava trekking and stay at Lava.
3>Day3: Lava to Lolegaon and stay there.
4>Day4: spend the day at Lolegaon and start for NJP in the afternoon.

Please share if you have any better idea for this short time frame and any information regarding availability of public and private transport between these places.
I also want to know how much the tour should cost considering accomodation in standard resorts and including the transportation cost. One travel agent has given me the estimation of Rs 17K for 2 persons.

Hi,

Do you have information or idea of public transportation running in between destination to destination (like NJP to LAVE, LAVA to RISHOP, RISHOP to LOLEGAON, LOLEGAON to NJP) or transportation in sharing basis?

Lava is connected by good road.

Few buses are coming to Lava. From NJP there is a chance that you will get bus or share car.

Lava to Lolegaon , I think only two buses are running everyday. Route is Lolegaon to Lava to Kalimpong and back.

To Rishap, by walking (around 4 KM) or you have to hire a car (around Rs. 400).
