THE SWITZERLAND OF INDIA- SIKKIM NORTH EAST INDIA-EXPLORE -5-6-7

IMG_2699.JPGMost tourists stop by at the Teesta Rangit confluence viewpoint to admire the view. The green verdant hills and the rivers as it meets, meanders round curves and bends can be seen miles away and beyond. A comfortable outpost (san restrooms) is created for a Chai point, there are many tea stalls, warm cup of tea is served with biscuits, the last point for Darjeeling tea, as the road trip climb further it is Sikkim tea!
