Best way is to hire an exclusive cab from Kurseong for Rishyap . Cost will be around 3 to 3.5 K . Otherwise you may take shared cabs from Kurseong to Kalimpong via Ghoom & hire exclusive car from Kalimpong to Rishyap. There is no shared Jeep service for Rishyap from Kalimpong .

@subhendu1975.

You can travel by Bus. One Bus goes upto Loleygaon via Lava. You can get down at Lava. Fare was Rs. 40/- per head in 2013. It start from Kalimpong at 8 AM. Book your tickets in afternoon from Taxi Stand Booking Counter just before the day of your journey. After getting down at Lava, you just hire a porter (Easily available at Bus/Taxi Stand) for Rishap and start walking. It will take only one Maximum(4.5 kms easy way). Porter charges was of Rs. 200/- in 2013. I travelled with my wife and 6 years son in January-2013.

From Kurseong you can avail shared Jeeps up to Kalimpong. I travelled from Darjeeling to Kalimpong by shared Jeep and booked four seats in middle for three of us in Jan-2013.

Hope it will help you, if you are a budget travellers an like to mix up yourself with the locals.

Regards.

Thanks for your update.
I also thought and planned like that to take shared cab services from Kurseong to Kalimpong & then book a small cab from Kalimpong to Lava/Rishop.
