"During those twenty-one years my duties took me to almost every corner of the beautiful mountain countries of Sikkim and Bhutan, with their heterogeneous population of Lepchas, Bhuteas, Tibetans, Bhutanese and paharias...In climate every variation was to be found from arctic to subtropical, with scenery unparalleled anywhere in the world for magnificence and grandeur and the brightness and softness of its colouring,the bold snow-clad and desolate expanses contrasting sharply with the rich and luxuriant vegetation of the deep-cut valleys close at hand." John Claude White...Sikhim and Bhutan, 1909.
