Just completed a trip to the Eastern Himalayas - Darjeeling. Fabulous trips with some really interesting takeaways which I felt could be shared in this forum. Each picture has its own commentary ...
Hope you like the pictures and they can provide a perspective. Feel free to leave any comments/ critiques! Thanks for watching!
