I need information regarding:-

a)rented car fares,shared car fares & bus fares from these 3 destinations.

b) car fares for Changu Lake, Nathula Pass, Baba Mandir.

Hi Megha,

Car hire will cost you appro Rs2000-Rs2500 per day subject to demand.

For Changu Lake and Baba Mandir will cost you appro Rs4500-Rs5000/ and Nathula will cost extra Rs6000-Rs7000/

Nathula permit is only provided as per weather condition.

Shared taxi are available from NJP and Siliguri town but this will consume time and you need to travel will enough time. Charges from NJP-Kalimpong will be appro Rs200-Rs300 per passenger.
