Comment My rating is based on my huge disappointment that barely 2.5 pages are committed to trekking in Sikkim (one of the main reasons I bought this book). There is more information in the Lonely Planet guide for the whole of India than in this guide focused on the Indian Himalaya. Considering asking for a refund.
Rating No. 2:
Comment I lived in the Indian Himalayas for many years and this book is actually very good.
