Bhaktapur to Kakarbitta to Darjeeling

I will be taking a plane from Kathmandu to Bhaktapur. From there I don't know how to get from Bhaktapur to Kakarbitta and then on to Darjeeling. Can I take a taxi the entire journey? Do I have to change taxis at the border of Nepal and India. Has anyone taken this route and can give me information on how this trip worked for you?I'm not interested in crowed bus travel!

No problems mate, i have been there done that so let me help.

Kathmandu to Bhaktapur(or is it Badrapur, kinda confusd) is approximately a 45 mnts flight and there are a number of carriers. From there it is approximately 1 hr to Kakarvita but you dont need to go there if you are going to Darjeeling directly. You can go to Darjeeling through another border area called Pashupati which is closer to Darjeeling. As for the taxi, if you are taking a reserved taxi then you dont need to change taxi at the border. My advice book the taxi in advance from a hotel or travel agent. I stayed at Hotel Seven seventeen and they planned my whole trip around Darjeeling and sikkim. The owners of the place are Tibetans and they are now my good friends because they made my trip there worthwhile. Their website www,hotel717.com. Hope I was of help.
