|How to go:||Way 1:
You can just tell the hotel owner to fetch a car for you. They will charge as a round trip like rs. 2500. If you are having a group like 5/6 people, that is probably the best idea to manage cost.
If you are less than 4 in a group you can take local share car which is very convenient but yes a bit time taking i must say that. If that is not an issue, you can come to Siliguri bus stand from NJP railway by shared auto, it takes around 30 min. From Siliguri bus stand you can get 11 seated share car paying around 200 rs for Kalimpong bus stand. It takes around 2 hours. From Klimpong bus stand you will get another share car for Pedong which takes around 30 min more and cost is 50 rs.
