Some places should not be googled, just discovered,
Some adventures should not be scripted, just relished...
Every journey counts, every day counts, every breathe counts and every moment counts. And as I count my steps along the miles, my heart craves for another trip, for another journey to be counted.
A journey to the “Dawn lit Mountains”
A journey to the “Land of the Monks”
A journey to the “Land of warm and ever smiling people”
A journey to TAWANG……
The name Tawang means “Horse Chosen”
Tawang is the name given, but for many it’s Shangri-La. The birth place of the Sixth Dalai Lama.
Now this trip was never planned, never thought of and never dreamt of being the one on the cards until one day the travel bug bites me again and asks for a journey, a quest for redemption, a journey to know the existence and purpose of this life and to live it to the fullest.
So finally after doing some research which I always do since being a solo traveller to most of the places, my instincts always tell me to do that. I got in touch with the local agencies to make this trip happen as you require ILP (Inner Line Permits) to enter Arunachal Pradesh (Tawang), so it was best to be in touch with local agencies and get the permits sorted. You can easily get permits by applying online on the mentioned link (https://arunachalilp.com/onlineApp.do). But for me I thought it was best to pre arrange everything as I had less time and more places to explore.
And finally a random Instagram post sets my trip up through a local group named @MYTAWANG. Being a roadrunner this was the perfect match for me, I bet even better than most people would find on Tinder as well????. A biking expedition to Tawang is the highest adrenaline that I would dream of and I would tell you why it was adrenaline. So the day was set and the time had come to Rev the engines ….
