Overview for Sikkim: Land of Mystique

This, the first comprehensive travel guide to Sikkim, captures the mystique of the mountain land with over 120 photographs, hand-painted illustrations of birds and butterflies and maps and an evocative text. The first three chapters attempt to introduce the reader to Sikkim and its people. Culture, religion and history; festivals, customs and literature, flora and fauna  all flavours of life in this almost-undiscovered destination are explored through extensive research and exhaustive field-trips. After the introductory chapters, the book tries to cover those aspects that make Sikkim one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in India today. A monastery-by-monastery guide covers the leading gompas. Sikkim's four districts  East Sikkim, South Sikkim, West Sikkim and North Sikkim have each been covered separately, detailing what to see and where to go in each. There is also a detailed chapter on adventure tourism, giving information on outdoor activities ranging from river-rafting, trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and mountaineering that Sikkim offers to the thrill-seeking traveller. This section also contains hand-drawn maps of the more popular trekking trails in Sikkim. Comprehensive and up-to-date information from the time you decide to visit Sikkim visas, special entry permit regulations for Sikkim, air and train connections, travel and tour operators, where to stay and where to eat  has been dealt with in the practical information section. Another handy tool included in this guidebook is the English-Nepali and English-Hindi phrasebooks.
