- The road through Sela Pass to Tawang is a beautiful but complex one. You’ll be racing through bumpy winding roads, which reach up to 13,700 ft. through rain, ice, mud and snow. You will gawp at the amazing Himalayan views but won’t want to keep your eyes off the road, even if you’re not at the wheel.
- As a foreign tourist, you will need a PAP (Protected Area Permit) to enter the state or as an Indian tourist, you will need an ILP (Inner Line Permit).
The Sela Pass to Tawang road in December is full of snow.
- You’ll find Tawang Mountain yaks on the road.
- A lot of Arunachal Pradesh, especially along the Tawang circuit, has army camps and barracks which are set up to protect the Indian China border.
- The road to Tawang is so effortlessly picturesque and is full of hidden gems that you can go off road to explore. One of those is the gorgeous Nuranang falls. Reaching a height of 100 metres high, this waterfall is enough to make anyone’s problems feel small.
- Chaksam bridge is a remarkable architectural achievement. Chaksam bridge was constructed in the 14th century, by a disciple of the Dalai Lama Tangton Gyalpo. It was designed to provide a safe crossing over the Tawang Chu River and the fact you can still cross it now is a testament to its success.
- Tawang, a town in Arunachal Pradesh is the birthplace of the sixth Dalai Lama, Tsangyang Gyatso.
