While Sikkim appears tiny on the map, mountainous roads are such that what appears close ...

Kangchenjunga Sunrise

... in the group, and I didn’t want to push my luck.

I did end up waking Louise, who viewed the mountains from the window in our hotel room, but I should have banged on Katherine’s and Leslie’s doors as well… and next time I will. Sunrises are important! Besides, in one of Louise’s many stories about rooming with Leslie in college, I learned that she (Leslie) thinks sleep is stupid. ...

Today Mr Rajiv Lochan personally took Deb and I to visit gardens in Darjeeling and to get a tour of the surrounding area. It was an early morning start as the roads can be quite rough and not easy to navigate. Rajiv hired a driver to take care of all the driving allowing us to take in the scenery and take photos along the way. The roads provided views nothing short of breathtaking. In our travels we have seen our share of cliff roads in Switzerland, ...

... centre and had a mooch around. We met a nice girl from Winchester in the hotel too and sat chatting to her for most of the evening. Scott went to track down Tongba Beer with a local. Its a millet beer brewed from dried fermented millet in a wooden bamboo mug that is drunk through a straw and is insanely strong. You get 5 big tankards worth for 40 rupees (50p!) He found a place where he could buy the illusive stuff but it ...

The cliffs had much work going on from the earthquake with both men and women working to repair and enlarge the roads working bear foot, with sandals, dhouti( for men a draped skirt tied at the waist) women much of the same with a blouse. This is really what I call men and women power lolol. With 1.5 billion people living in India there is not shortage of those who work or need work so ...

    Great View - Wish We Could See It

    This hiew el has been very satisfactory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We love the duvets - beds very comfy. We could have a spectacular view of the valley if the mist would lift but it might be the wrong season - April 18 & 19. The restaurant in the hotel is quite good and recommended in guidebooks. Service has been good. I hadn't realized that Sikkim is making lots of efforts to be green and I appreciate that a lot.
