From Nights People


From Bagdogra Airport
1. By bus
From Bagdogra Airport, one can take a rick/cab to Siliguri SIkkim Bus Stand for hourly buses to Gangtok. These start at 7 am and are on till early evening. Seats are at Rs 150.

2. By Taxi
You can queue for public taxi at Bagdogra Airport.

Alternatively, you can book an amazing comfortable ride at www.metta.taxi which start at Bagdogra airport 2 pm and 4 pm - it only costs around Rs 500/ seat (max 5) current pricing. This is my favourite option for all visitors. Local cab within Sikkim would not cost more than Rs 100 during the day, and 150 at night.

Once at Gangtok, which is approximately 4 hours from SIliguri and Bagdogra, ask the local cab to drop you off just before Hotel Royal Plaza, we are Rabdenling Home on the right, the big black gate you can't miss.

Here is our address in English and Local Language:
Upper Syari, Above Hotel Royal Plaza, Gangtok

Located near

Located in Syari, the place is a 5 minute walk to the Museum of Tibetology, and the Monastery. We're also just a 45 minute trek to the river below, if you feel like a fresh water dip or riverside camping. A 10-15 minute leisurely stroll gets you to MG Road, but if you want to save your energy, a 5 minute shared cab ride @ Rs.10 would do the same.
