    A taxi to Darjeeling will cost a lot of money from the airport and the journey might be slow, most people either hire a whole jeep or get a shared jeep to Darjeeling and beyond.

    A taxi from the Airport to Siliguri is about Rs 300 from Siliguru take a jeep to Darjeeling. Jeeps can get up the winding roads a lot eaiser than a car.

    The best option for you would be to take a shared taxi just outside Bagdogra airport. Take the front seat or the middle ( They are all commanders, sumo or scorpios). The fare is Rs200/- per person. For front you need to pay for three and for middle for four.

    Have a great holiday in Darjeeling!

    Mr. Ashok, we returned yesterday from Egypt. Please watch my Egypt page, which I am going to build from today. It is going to be a vast one. Please find all the information there.
    We travelled by Oman air with stop over at Muscat on both ways, good for duty free shopping on return. The cost will be around Rs.70000 to 80000 INR plus you need to buy water. We travelled with Cox & Kings, they give value for money.
