Description
About the Book

This book, which was originally published in 1930, was intended by the author, a British trade agent in Tibet, to serve as a guidebook for people wanting to travel or trek to this region. It provides short sketches of history, people, religion, flora and fauna, etc. It also contains other information such as equipment to be carried, rates of coolies and mules and other information useful to the travellers those days.

Preface

In the following pages will be found hints to the intending tourist in the Darjeeling Hills, in Sikkim, and in Tibet. These notes are the result of personal experience of the writer and members of his family, who, resident in Tibet and Sikkim for many years, have experience of practically every possible tour that the visitor is likely to make.

Since the publication of the most recent Guide Book to these Hills, conditions and prices have considerably altered, and these facts, together with repeated requests from friends and travellers who have passed through Kalimpong, form the excuse for the present pamphlet.

Realising that in a volume of the present size many points of interest to the individual must necessarily be omitted, the author wishes to inform any intending tourist that he will be pleased, on request, to give any further information that may be of use in particular cases.

He also takes this opp9rtunity of acknowledging the great assistance he has received, in the editing and production of this guide book, from Mr. F. W. R. Perry of the Himalayan Hotel, Kalimpong.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
