The Tourists are still here!

Gangtok, 17 Jun: While locals are finding it difficult to make it to home by dinner time due to shortage of taxis too busy on tourist duty, the number of tourists in the capital continues to grow despite the incessant rainfall and unreliable roads. Compared to last year, when the flow of tourists dwindled due to the Gorkhaland Agitation in West Bengal, this year, the hoteliers and taxi drivers are making up for the losses with most of the hotels and taxis already pre-booked and packed.
