India - Sikkim (PDF Chapter)
This is the Sikkim chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
Hassle-free and warm-hearted, Sikkim all too easy to fall in love with. Clean, green and ‘all organic’ since 2016, it’s mostly a maze of plunging valleys thick with subtropical woodlands and rhododendron groves, rising in the north to the white-top peaks of the eastern Himalaya.
