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.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA

Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
