Comments by readers
I have gone through the e-book by Raj ji, so I can definitely say I virtually traveled through all the places before actually visiting Gangtok and around. The book is so essential that it gives you a perfect pen picture not only of sights but essential requirement and things you should know.
I found it useful even after the visit. I found the description exactly the same as reality. If I have not gone through this ebook I would have missed midway points such as Temi Tea garden, Lamhatta and Mirik.
Even the driver had to say 'sir - are you visiting second time'. My sincere thanks to your remarkable endeavor and passion.... Vinod Kumar Yadav
I am happy that I bought your ebook. Really fantastic compilation of so many information. Fluid writing makes it impossible for me to stop reading. Felt like a lonely planet series in words (I would say better than that)... Rajesh Varadarajan
We, 6 Sr. Citizens from Bengaluru visited SIKKIM-PELLING-DARJEELING. At the outset I on behalf of all my team mates would like to thank you for the "yeoman's service" you are doing for the visitors.
Your e-book covers each and every thing in details, if one goes through the entire book he does not need any one's help in deciding which place to visit and when to visit and also the "do's & don'ts".
I could draw an itinerary suitable to (we) Sr. Citizens with the help of your e-book and also the itinerary shared by other travelers published in your website. I once again heartily thank you for all the assistance provided, may God bless you.... HS Shastry
