Detailed Product Description

New Delhi, 2008, 2nd edition. 176 pp, 68 plates, maps. The Sikkim Himalaya were one of the first Himalayan ranges to be explored during the early period. It contains some magnificent flora and fauna and that was the first attraction to visit the valleys.

' The centrepiece of the Sikkim Himalaya is certainly the Kangchenjunga range, with the main peak being the third highest peak in the world.
