Today's program was mostly driving from West Sikkim to Gangtok in East Sikkim through South Sikkim. We reversed our route for some time - I will have to get someone to mark it on a map for me (never did) - and then we switched to a new route ...

I didn't like it. There's lots of great trekking in the area but ...
... to us at the Granville Island Tea Company and the chance to visit this garden was special. The garden is high up the picturesque mountains and offers sloping vistas. We managed to meet some of the pluckers and tour through the gardens.
