Autumn is the perfect time to visit the high altitude valley of Yumthang, in North Sikkim. A day and half’s ride from the capital Gangtok brings you to this biological hot spot, famous for its flower blooms in spring.

The idea of doing two holidays back to back has taken its toll, have loaded all the pictures there is still a lot of editing, revisiting the travel notes before the story boards take shape. Till then, let me share with you some of the posts from my instagram feed. Today’s post is about the great Indian railways. Taken during my recent holidays, miles apart in different corners of India. Life on the train, on the stations and around captured by phone and presented here in black & white.
Hope you enjoy it ..
