Driving Holidays in the Himalayas is a series of books that endeavour to give the reader a glimpse of many exciting, exotic locales that can be easily accessed by road and hopes to provide enough insight to make your trip a comfortable and memorable one.Whereas this book explores Sikkim, and briefly the adjoining towns of Darjeeling and Kalimpong, others in the series take you through Uttaranchal, Himachal, Ladakh & Zanskar.These books especially focus on travellers who are fond of driving, have their own wheels (two, four-or even hired will do!), and love the mountains. Given the time constraints to our lives today, each book is designed to cover a fair degree of terrain in a week to ten days. Although it does not aim to visit every place possible in a region, it certainly traverses a reasonable cross-section. It reflects the author’s own preferences of picturesque place to visit and also makes dining recommendations.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:KOKO SINGH, has traveled extensively through the Himalayas for over twenty-five years. Having opted out of the corporate main steam, he has been volunteering as a consultant to an NGO (SRUTI), for over fifteen years now. This shift allowed him the time to indulge in his love for travel ad this set of books is an effort to share the beauty and adventures of Himalayan travel.
