About this book

Sandwiched between Bhutan and Nepal on the eastern border of India, Sikkim has always lured travellers--whether trekkers, pilgrims, botanists, or just people who want a serene break from routine. Photographer Sujoy Das, who fell early under the spell of Sikkim, has been documenting the land over the last two decades and provides rare pictures of its people, mountains, and barren plateaus. Arundhati Ray covers all that a visitor needs to know in order to travel here. In a wonderfully storytelling style, peppered with anecdotes and folk tales, she provides the essential information for any visitor. Together with Das's evocative and perceptive essays about his many journeys in Sikkim, these make this book more than just a guide: it offers a complete travel experience
