I have made plans to travel to Darjeeling and Gangtok from 6th Apr to 12 Apr 2013.

I have already booked Trains tickets but i have some questions about expenditure as I am on having tight budget.I will be traveling with my wife and 1.5 yr kid.

My initial itinerary is as :
6th Apr : Reach NJP in morning and take shared taxi to Darjeeling.
7th Apr & 8th Apr Darjeeling

9th Apr leave early morning for Gangtok
10th Apr & 11th Apr Gangtok
12th Apr leave for NJP(4 Am) (either via darjeling or Direct) to catch train (11 Am) for delhi.

Now my confusion is that
1. can we do local sight seeing in shared taxi's in Darjelling and Gangtok without much hassles since I am on tight budget.
2. Should i book hotel in advance or i can do that once i reach Darjeeling and Gangtok.
3. I have heard that Local sight seeing in private cab are very much costlier and it will cost you around 18K for 6 days and also cab drivers doesn't show you all the places they have told while booking.

Please help me with the advice.

Taking a shared taxi will depend on whether you find people for sharing the taxi.

It would be better idea to have a look at the rooms and then book them.
