If you are trekking with Black yak expeditions
Arrive at (NJP) Railway Station, Siliguri or Bagdogra airport by 9 am (on your own)
Black Yak Expeditions will arrange pick-up vehicles from NJP railway station and Bagdogra airport to Gangtok and Lachen the base camp of your expedition. We provide luxury vehicles like INNOVA, ZXILO or normal vehicles like TATA SUMO GOULD, BOLERO, etc. And mini cab suitable for 2 or three families with light travel bags like Wagoner, Alto etc. We cannot arrange shared jeeps because it is not reliable. Above all, there are no direct shared jeeps to certain parts of Sikkim from pick up points. You have to break down your points while taking shared jeeps. For example, if you are travelling to Gangtok for Lama Wangden Expedition there are no direct shared jeeps from New Jalpaiguri Railway station NJP or Bagdogra Airport. First, you have to reach Siliguri junction from there you have to take a vehicle to Jorethang. (Jorethang is a small business town or main point that connects to most part of Sikkim.) Even though if you reach Siliguri taxi stand than here comes another challenging part that is all the regular shared jeeps that come to Gangtok Leave within 2:00 pm. So you have to be there within 1:00 or 2:00 an. Even after that, there is no 100% guaranteed that you will get the shared jeeps because it is pre-booked by locals by call and you should also keep one thing in mind that in tourist season most of the vehicles are pre-booked. So thinking about shared jeeps is not good in the first place.
Transport is arranged in a Tata Sumo (or similar vehicle). Each cab costs Rs. 5500/-
If you request pre-booking for pick up and drop along with trek or tour package then this statement is not applicable to you since Black Yak Expeditions will pay for the charges but in case if you have not asked for pick up and drop facilities than you should know that the transportation cost is additional, to be shared among the trekkers and paid directly to the drivers.
On the day of pickup at least do your best to be present at New Jalpaiguri Railway Station (NJP) or Bagdogra Airport within 9:00 Am or 10:00 Am. Incuse if we start late from Siliguri then we will reach certain trekking basecamps like Gangtok, Lachen very Late at night and that can cause great inconvenience to you as we have to begin the trek early next morning. It takes around 4 to 5 hours from New Jalpaiguri Railway station NJP or Bagdogra airport to Gangtok. Expected arrival time at Gangtok is 5 pm. Due to ongoing constructions on the route and sometimes heavy traffic jams, it can delay our travel on the route.
