Sikkim's four districts – East Sikkim, South Sikkim. West Sikkim and North Sikkim have each been covered seperatly, detaling 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.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
