Kangchenjunga . Viewed from Sikkim.

L’incroyable aventurière et romancière Alexandra David-Néel, (1868-1969), première femme à atteindre le Tibet pourtant interdite aux étrangers (1924), vécu plusieurs mois au Sikkim, soit à la Résidence Britannique soit dans différents monastères. Elle y bâtit une « cabane » dans laquelle elle vécu plusieurs semaines.
(« Voyage d’une Parisienne à Lhassa »1927 - « Lettres à son Mari - 1904- 1940" publiées en 1975 et tant d'autres ouvrages...)

The amazing adventurer and novelist Alexandra David-Néel, (1868-1969), first woman to reach Tibet which was forbidden to foreigners (1924), lived several months in Sikkim, either at the British Residence or in various monasteries. There she built a “hut” in which she lived for several weeks.

(1927, « My Journey to Lhasa » - « Lettres à son mari. 1904-1940 » published in 1975. This one not translate in English, I think and so many others books...)
