Entering Sikkim

From New Jalpaiguriguri it is an enchanting drive past some good scenary. We reach the entry point to Sikkim at Rangpo. A good idea to keep cameras and bincoulars handy for frequent clicking. Rangpo is a busy small town with lots of small restaurants for tourists to refuel themselves. While we stop for a tea break, I catch up with the entry Gate below. It has a jazzy local touch to it.
